Brief Answer: My reply is below. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for posting your query. Yes, there is a small risk of developing numbness pn the sides of foot, if you have the aural nerve surgery. This is because the aural nerve supplies sensations to the outer aspect of foot. You could also read my research paper on aural nerve biopsy published in the journal Neurology India.
