Im not sure exactly how to describe it but, here it goes, it has plastic lateral support and a "donut" shape that keeps the knee cap from "tracking" if that is the correct term.

thanks again
No problem. Your first brace is called a knee immobilizer the second brace you described is exactly what you said patella stabilizing with lateral support. If that brace works for you continue to use it. However, I'd still see your doctor again If I were you. it's been 8 months and still having problems...somthings wrong.
