Normally the patella (kneecap) has a wedge shape, with a medial and a lateral facet and a central crest. The patella slides in the intercondylar sulcus of the femur during knee flexion and extension, forming the patellofemoral joint (PFJ).
Please consult with your medical professional for a complete diagnosis and treatment plan.
