After Surgery Foot Drop Better

AFTER SURGERY: This patient had surgery one week ago on the common peroneal nerve for a foot drop. She had evidence for compression of the common peroneal nerve at the fibular head at the outside of her knee. She has had incredible response to surgery after a very short period of time. Within one week, this patient has had dramatic improvement in the strength of her foot as seen in the ability to raise the foot or dorsiflex the foot and to move the foot sideways.
