Default Chihuahua patella luxation surgery?

Hi. I have a 7.5 lb. 1.5 yr old Chihuahua and it has been brought to my attention that he MIGHT need surgery in the future to correct a condition known as "luxation of the patella."
I am trying to get as much info as possible and I was hoping to hear some experiences from people who have had this procedure done on their dogs.

What method of surgery was performed?
Did it work? How was the recovery?
Any post-operative problems/complications?
Any additional information would be great because I am getting a bit nervous about this.

Thank you for your time,
