Nerve Injuries With Knee Replacement Surgery

Injuries to the nerves are one of the more common complications of knee replacement surgery. Nerve injuries from this procedure, in most cases, are temporary. They generally improve in several days to months. Sometimes, however, the injury can be permanent. This is more likely if severe scar tissue is present on or around the nerve. The symptoms can range from temporary to permanent problems in the legs and/or feet, including loss of feeling and strength of the affected area. Most commonly, there is a feeling of ankle weakness when lifting up your foot and numbness on the top of the foot.
