Tammi had a grade 4 medial luxating patella. This is where the knee cap does not run in the groove of the knee – the trochleargroove but is dislocated permanently medially (on the inside of the knee).
This is painful and was causing chronic and severe lameness in poor Tammi who was only one yeard old.
Dr Rob was able to fix this.
Here’s what it looked like before
The patella is now running in the groove in the centre of the stifle (knee)
Here is a view prior to surgery. Can you see that the patella is located to the side of the stifle joint (knee) ?
