The knee joint is a hinge that joins the tibia and fibula (lower leg bones) with the femur (thighbone). The patella is held in place in the front of the knee joint by tendons on the top and bottom and by ligaments on the sides. A layer of cartilage lines underneath the patella, helping it glide along the groove at the end of the femur.
