Manage with knee cap & physiotherapy, if it gives you adequate relief, nothing like it. Otherwise surgery is the answer.

Knee cap doesn't prevent major injuries. In minor it may help.
Knee cap with Hinged type only gives certain stability Do Take Conservative physiotherapy intervention before opting surgery with good physiotherapist Best wishes.
