Patella Tendon Tear

The patella tendon connects the knee cap (patella) to the shin bone (tibia). The patella tendon is important because it works with the quadriceps tendon to straighten the leg. A patella tendon tear occurs when the patella tendon is partially or completely torn. Patients who experience patella tendon tear symptoms should make an appointment with a Carolina Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical Associates’ (CONA) knee specialist.

Knee Tendonitis
Tendons are strong connective tissues that connect muscles to bones. When muscles flex, tendons gently pull on the bones to move them. Tendonitis is inflammation of a tendon or group of tendons. Knee tendonitis, specifically patella tendonitis, is a common condition that many athletes and active individuals experience. A Carolina Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical Associates’ (CONA) knee specialist prescribes a customized treatment plan to reduce knee tendonitis symptoms.
