I'm a 57 year old active male. I was in a car accident in July which shattered my patella into 8 pieces.The center piece of the patella was lost. I've been in a full brace for 3 months and now they're talking about possibly having to do a total knee reconstruction not a replacement. What is the difference and what would be the reasoning? Confused.
