Bones Home > Fractured Kneecap With ACL Reconstruction

If the graft was taken from the front of the knee, it is possible to fracture your kneecap, simply because part of your bone has been removed. This occurs in 2 out of 100 procedures using the patellar tendon. If this does occur, your knee may be immobilized for a period of time or additional surgery may be necessary.
