Lateral Release Surgery
Lateral release surgery is performed when the patella (kneecap) becomes misaligned and is not able to function properly in the center of the groove of the femur bone as the knee bends and straightens. This operation is performed by arthroscopic methods. The purpose of the lateral release is to improve the movement of the knee cap (patella) and to decrease the pressure on it. The procedure is also known as a 'lateral retinacular release'.
