Sural nerve neuroma is often caused by an injury during prior surgery, for example, osteosynthesis or ligament refixations at ankle level. Different surgical techniques to treat neuroma have been described. Neurectomy of an injured symptomatic sural nerve has been described as a treatment option for neuropathic pain. The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcomes of this technique to operatively treat sural nerve neuroma in our department.
