Shaved my patellar which wasn't part of my problem and now patellar on effected leg is still unstable 5 years later. shaved too much and now too small which causes movement of patellar when it isn't supposed to move. Much worse off after procedure. Was supposed to trim frayed meniscus and remove bone chip. Said proposed bone chip was behind knee so he left it.
