This medical exhibit accurately depicts chondromalacia  of the right knee, primarily the articular surface of the patella, with subsequent laser surgery repair. Using a series of five illustrations, the first graphic displays the roughened appearance of the patellar surface with labels indicating Grade I and II (1 and 2) chondromalacia. The remaining illustrations show arthroscopic surgery to shave and smooth the undersurface of the patella.
