USC Orthopaedic Surgery / Treatments / Tibial Tuberosity Transfer Treatment of the Knee

The tibial tubercle is the bump on the front of the leg where the patellar tendon inserts. In some patients with a poorly positioned patella, a procedure that moves the tibial tubercle is necessary. By cutting and shifting the bump, the kneecap’s position changes, realigning the patella, alleviating pressure and making it less likely to dislocate. Keck Medicine of USC orthopaedic surgeons are pioneers for many joint preservation and replacement procedures, and have performed thousands of surgeries.
