What is a Dislocation of the Knee Joint?

Description of the disease

A dislocation of the knee joint is a condition in which the bone of the knee joint comes out of the joint space. This can occur due to injury, overloading, or due to congenital structural features of the joint.


A dislocation of the knee joint can be partial or complete, depending on how far the bone has come out of the joint.


  • Pain in the knee
  • Swelling and bruising
  • Feeling of joint instability


The main causes of dislocation of the knee joint are trauma, sudden load on the joint, and anomalies in the joint structure.


For the diagnosis of dislocation of the knee joint, X-ray examination, MRI or CT is carried out.


Treatment includes wearing splints, physiotherapy, and in some cases the need for surgical intervention.


  • Strengthening the muscles around the knee joint
  • Avoiding sharp turns and overloads


The treatment of dislocation of the knee joint is carried out by a traumatologist-orthopedist.
