CPT Code: 27438
Patellofemoral (PFJ) reconstruction is used to stabilise an unstable or potentially unstable joint, and to decrease stress on the patellofemoral joint. Joint stabilisation has been shown to decrease articular cartilage injury. This then decreases the likelihood of later osteoarthritic change. It also allows return to activities that were difficult secondary to joint instability or activities that increased forces on the patellofemoral joint.
