    Hello:
    If you were having a SubTalar implant removed the nerve in question is a superficial peroneal. These are small sensory nerves which supply various portions of the top of the foot and toes. The nerves are quite small and easily damaged during this procedure since the skin incision is made perpendicular to the course of the nerves.
    In time some of the area that is affected may decrease in size.
