Peroneal nerve: Isolated foot drop after surgery is likely due to pressure on the lateral aspect of the leg just below the knee during surgery. As seen in the picture, the peroneal nerve is at risk of pressure injury where it crosses the fibula. This kind of "palsy" due to pressure may recover spontaneously over weeks to months.
