Patellar tendinopathy is a disabling condition that frequently affects the athletic population, especially athletes undergoing repetitive impact forces as a result of jumping and landing activities. Most cases are initially treated conservatively, but if symptoms persist, surgical treatment is warranted. Options for surgical treatment include both arthroscopic and open techniques.
