Broken Kneecap

High-quality, compassionate care for broken kneecaps

Our experience makes the difference. The skilled orthopedists at EmergeOrtho work as a team to provide an accurate and timely diagnosis so a comprehensive treatment plan can be created

Broken kneecaps are often caused by a fall or a direct blow to the kneecap. The kneecap — also called the patella — can also be indirectly fractured by sudden muscle contractions.

Common symptoms include:

  • Pain
  • Swelling on the front of the knee
  • Inability to walk
  • Inability to straighten the knee
  • Bruising
  • Inability to keep the knee extended

EmergeOrtho utilizes personalized treatment plans that help patients receive the excellent care they need so they can return to full health as quickly as possible. This involves working with all members of our health care team and utilizing the most advanced treatment methods available.
