This patient is 6 weeks postop from decompression of the proximal tibial nerve in the calf, and the superficial peroneal nerve in the lower leg, as well as, 6 months from the decompression of the common peroneal nerve at the knee to try to help with nerve regeneration after a sciatic nerve injury from a hip replacement. She noticed immediate improvement in pain after both of these procedures. Her muscle function is slowly improving with time. The nerve has to regrow all the way from the buttock to the lower leg, so the muscle recovery will be slower to heal than some of her pain issues. We are both quite happy with her results from these operations.
