I have suffered from patella dislocation since I was about

Resolved Question:

I have suffered from patella dislocation since I was about 8. My knee has dislocated many times, probably over 50. It has affected both knees. Now my knee caps look bumpy and my legs are not aligned in a straight way. Recently I have been getting pain in my bones and knee caps. I have to my local hospital but they did nothing and likewise I have been to my GP but no solution. I used to be into athletics and I want to get active again but I am scared of the danger and pain associated with my knee problem. Can you help?

Can my knees look normal again, can I run without my patella dislocating ?

The knees look OK

IF yo have repeated dislocations and nothing has worked, you need to consider surgery.

See an orthopedist about this.
