      If nerve preservation is the standard during an open repair, then why is the effort, an attempt to save the nerve non existent by “hernia specialists” through nerve allograft during a revision surgery?

      Is this simply not within their skill set or too much of an effort and can only be performed by plastic or peripheral neuro surgeons?

      With modern medical advances and in year 2020, which Bill Gates and Elon musk deem now is the best time to be alive as humans, treatment of peripheral nerve injury in a very important part of our body is to simply cut it (all of them) tie it, and “dunk” it in the muscle…

      Why not give nerve allograft a chance for better chance of quality of life for patients?
