Dr. Shawn Hennigan answered:

What can i expect from submuscular ulnar nerve transposition surgery?

Ulnar nerve

Nerve
The ulnar nerve can be released and moved in front of the elbow joint. It is usually maintained there in a pocket either on top of the muscle (subcutaneous), or beneathe the muscle (submuscular). To place the nerve submuscular, you have to detach some muscle, place the nerve beneath, and repair the muscle. Some additional pain initially, and a bit longer to heal with more restrictions.

Is it possible that ulnar nerve transposition surgery ever slip back out of place?

Yes

Open-uri20130416-14171-k82d6e
It is unusual for that to happen, since the technique is designed to secure the nerve in position. Surgery is not an exact science, and sometimes bad things can happen.

How serious is ulnar nerve entrapment surgery?

Open surgery

Nerve
Any surgery around the nerves has risks and potential complications. Ulnar nerve surgery is a relatively common surgery done by neurosurgeons and nerve specialists. It involves identifying the nerve at the region of the elbow and freeing it up of any scar and adhesions. Sometimes, it is necessary to transpose it or move it slightly so that it is not as easily injured.

Dr. Walter Husar answered:

I have ulnar nerve entrapment when is surgery needed?

Depends

Open-uri20130416-14171-k82d6e
It really depends on how severe the entrapment is. Mild irritation at the elbow is treated with rest, steroid injections, and padding. If there is clinical weakness in the fingers that are's innervated by the ulnar nerve, then surgery is important to be done.
