Anyone on here ever had (or know someone who has) an allograft transplantation for the patella? My understanding is that it is a removal of a bad/missing section of patellar cartilage (and some of the bone) and the use of a cadaver portion of the same to fuse in that spot. I like to think of it as re-sodding a section of lawn under my knee cap. Just wondering about success of the procedure, the very slow recovery process, etc. Thanks, in advance.
