Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to compare acute nerve decompression versus nonoperative treatment in the management of peroneal nerve palsy after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). We hypothesize that acute nerve decompression patients will have better long-term outcomes to patients treated non-operatively for peroneal nerve palsies after TKA.
