This week’s episode is a case study dealing with revision tarsal tunnel surgery. We discuss a really interesting case that illustrates the complexity of tarsal tunnel surgery and considerations of revision tarsal tunnel surgery—maybe the most complex peripheral nerve surgery in the lower extremity. Please join me in this great discussion with Drs. Gumbiner, Dr. Reittinger, and Dr. Nagra.
