  1. Excellent video of a saphenous nerve decompression. I have removed a saphenous schwannoma at the origin of the adductor canal through a more more anterior route (anterior border of sartorius) but your ‘medial’ approach looks easier. I agree that saphenous nerve decompressions are not for the faint hearted especially in patients with a high BMI!

    Could you upload a video on iliohypogastric and genitofemoral decompressions, especially the easiest way of finding the genitofemoral nerve, please? Many thanks.

    1. Thanks I Low, we have a paper that is currently is currently in the works describing the approach and outcomes with an older video. I will be sure to keep a look out for this procedure to produce.

  2. This is a great video and demonstration.Thank you. I know you describe it briefly in both videos, but could you please go into more detail about what symptoms patients typically present with when they have a compressed saphenous nerve? What kind of knee pain do patients describe? Is there always associated tenderness in the quad or do some patients only present with knee pain? Thank you so much!
