Sep 6, 2015 · A Life Restored

I would really like to know the availability of receiving a new kneecap. My knee cap was removed in 2014 with no warning or really given a reason. I am sure it must have been fractured due to my knee twisted after getting out of the shower without the brace due to breaking my femur 5 to 6 weeks earlier.
I am 56 years old in good Heath other than than the missing knee cap. I do have a rigid brace but my life has been totally upset with no expected good results. To walk comfortably or mostly comfortably would mean an outstanding relief to me. I live in Maryland and was given no good answers regarding receiving a new kneecap? Any help or information about would be extremely appreciated.
