The rise in popularity of bariatric surgery has been accompanied by a considerable increase in complications observed. Foot drop is a rare, but recognized complication after bariatric surgery. Early studies suggested the combination of rapid weight loss in the setting of postural compression of the nerve as main contributory factors. However, further research has also emphasized the role of postbariatric malnutrition and inflammation in the development of this neuropathy. The cause of this neuropathy is likely to be multifactorial, and understanding these mechanisms will assist multidisciplinary specialists in providing care to postbariatric patients suffering from this condition.
