This case involves a thirty-nine-year-old male patient who underwent a left meniscus allograph replacement surgery. The surgery was performed on the patient’s left knee. Immediately following the procedure, in the post-operative recovery room, the patient began to experience significant pain in his right leg which had not been operated on. Initially, the treating orthopedic surgeon suspected that the patient had a large hematoma formation which was causing the patient. However investigations revealed that this was not the case and it was determined that he developed severe nerve damage in this leg during the procedure. It was suspected that this occurred, most likely, as a result of a positioning malfunction during the surgery. The position in which the patient was placed for the duration of the procedure, which took several hours, placed a great deal of strain on the patient’s nerve and resulted in the pain he experienced post-operatively. The patient’s condition did not improve up to two years after the procedure and he continues to experience severe pain in the right leg. Despite seeking treatment a several different facilities the patient’s nerve damage did not resolve or improve, even marginally since. Successive neurology consults have confirmed that the damage to the right knee would be permanent and irreversible.
