In recent years, surgical interventions for patellofemoral joint instability have gained popularity, possibly revitalized by the recent advances in our understanding of patellofemoral joint instability and the introduction of a number of new surgical procedures. This rise in surgical intervention has brought about various complications. In this review article, we present the complications that are associated with 5 main surgical procedures to stabilize the patella-medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction, tibial tubercle osteotomy, trochleoplasty, lateral release/lateral retinacular lengthening, and derotation osteotomies. The key to success and potential problems with these surgical techniques are highlighted in the form of "expert takeaways."
