Secondary Surgery

Secondary surgery is used in cases where nerve surgery is not possible. This usually occurs when there has been a delay in obtaining treatment. When nerve surgery is performed after 6 months, the results are not as good as at 4- 6 months. After eight months, nerve reconstruction is often not possible.

In this situation, tendon transfers using the posterior tibial tendon (helps with stepping on the gas movements, similar to using a tibial nerve transfer) can be used to gain some stability of the ankle.
