Abstract

Performing nerve surgery with minimally invasive, endoscopic techniques offers new ways of achieving functional benefits by reducing scarring compared with conventional procedures. Early mobilisation and restoration of function are made possible by eliminating the need to immobilise the limb in plaster and reducing scarring in the weight-bearing region of the limb. Atraumatic preparation along the course of a nerve can help decrease operative morbidity and postoperative symptoms. Operating times are now no longer than those for conventional procedures, and the complication rate remains low if indications are strictly adhered to.
