Foot Drop as Complication of Hip SurgeryPeroneal nerve damage (foot drop) associated with hip replacement surgery is a serious disorder suffered by tens of thousands of individuals. The damage usually involves injury to the sciatic nerve arising from a complication occurring during or after hip implant surgery. Like any neurological injury, foot drop can be potentially devastating, requiring nonsurgical orthotics, physical therapy and/or decompression surgery, or other serious complex medical procedure.

Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, peroneal nerve damage often has minimal potential for recovery even with surgery. Doctors often treat the condition non-surgically using a custom-fitted foot splint (orthotic) allowing the individual to resume nearly normal daily activity. With proper physical therapy, some relief can be found.
