Formation of the traumatic neuroma results from abnormal nerve regeneration following a peripheral nerve injury. Numerous treatment options have been described. However, there is no one way that is completely effective in the management of these peripheral neuromas. Prevention is best. It is important to maximize nonsurgical management, including pain management and physiotherapy. At the time of surgery, definitive neuroma resection and tension-free repair or coverage will provide the least amount of subsequent nerve irritation.
