The article discusses the controversies and techniques in the surgical management of patellofemoral arthritis. Patellofemoral arthritis is a common cause of anterior knee pain and when the actual disease is in its early stage, careful and complete course of nonoperative treatment may provide sufficient pain relief and functional improvement.
