What is a lateral release surgical procedure for the knees?

AN EFFECTIVE LAST RESORT FOR KNEE TRACKING PROBLEMS

I have had trouble with my knees for quite some time and have tried just about everything. A local doctor recently suggested a lateral release surgical procedure. What can you tell me about this procedure? How long will it take to recover, and what is the success rate? Are there any troublesome reports I should know about?
