Brief Answer: My reply is below. Detailed Answer: Thank you for getting back. Sural nerve entrapment surgery is a minor procedure and it would not result in any adverse effect on your walking afterwards. Sural nerve is located on the outer aspect of foot and carries only sensory fibres, it does not control movement of any muscle in the foot. I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
