Abstract

We present the case of an 18-year-old woman who was healthy other than a history of multiple arthroscopic right knee surgeries culminating in subtotal lateral meniscectomy in a valgus knee. The patient was referred to our office for evaluation for realignment osteotomy and meniscal transplantation. Her diagnosed case of neuroma of the infrapatellar branch of the saphenous nerve was managed with neurectomy, which produced prompt and complete resolution of pain.
