Abstract: A bipartite symptomatic patella is a relatively common. However, a symptomatic bipartite patella is a rare condition. It can be chosen for a conservative or surgical treatment (for example excision of the patellar fragment). Current literature is not uniformly about the most successful treatment. We present a case report of a 26-year old patient with a painful knee, based on a bipartite patella. The super lateral patellar fragment was removed. After that, the vast us lateral muscle was sutured to the remaining patella. At follow-up in our out-door clinic after 8 weeks, the pain has been completely eliminated.
