Tibial Tuberosity

The tibial tuberosity, or front of the tibia, lies just below the skin and can easily be felt. The tibial tuberosity is a region on the bone where muscles and tendons attach (or an apophysis). The upper end joins the femur to form the knee joint, and the lower end forms part of the ankle joint.
