Can you walk without a knee cap?

little flower
yes ofcourse it is only really a protector


yes you could. But they protect your knee joints

without the knee cap the ligaments that hold the joint together are gone. Be prepared to do a lot of falling down.

kneecap - a small flat triangular bone in front of the knee that protects the knee joint

it would be really painful to walkwithout them but doable, i wouldnt like to be without them.

The Tank
yes, but it's not easy because so many of the ligaments etc. are attached to it. It also takes a long time to re-learn to walk and you would be ever after prone to knee joint problems.
But you could still play the voiln if you wanted to.

Yes .Lots of people have them removed for medical reasons .You need a lot of physio to get going properly again after the op.

The Cheminator
You would probally need a brace to prevent you from hyperextending the knee joint...but you should be able to walk.

Sexy Red
Yes you can walk without a patella (knee cap) the patella is only there for protection,but some people do find it hard to become stable thou if they have to have this removed,so thy would have to have a brace fitted which does the job too.
