chipped patella.

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure my patella is chipped. There is a piece of stuff, bone I guess, that can be moved around under the skin on my kneecap. Also I can feel a little hole where I think it may have come out of. What is the treatment for this? Can I just let it go? I pushed the piece back into the hole, will it glue back on, or will it stay loose and eventually end up in the joint? I would just go to the hospital but my insurace kind of sucks and I'm not sure if this is gonna be covered. Emergency room visits are expensive, but they're nothing compared to orthopedic procedures, and I'm guessing it'll take both.
