About the Society

The society strives to improve care for patients with patellofemoral conditions.

Our Goals

We aim to define and promote best practice in the management of patellofemoral joint conditions.

The society will endeavour to carry out original research and analyse any available existing publications to establish the current best practice for conditions affecting the PFJ. We mainly focus on three conditions; patellofemoral pain, instability and arthritis.

Who We Are

The society was formed in 2016 and welcomes all healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients with patellofemoral conditions, including physiotherapists, surgeons and radiologists.
