Neuropathic pain refractory to other modalities of treatment is an indication for surgical management. This video follows a case of neuropathic pain in the distribution of the ilioinguinal nerve, as demonstrated with short-term resolution of symptoms after a nerve block. Relevant neuroanatomy will be reviewed, and laparoscopic excision of the ilioinguinal nerve will be demonstrated in a stepwise fashion. Resolution of her symptoms on post-operative pain mapping will also be shown.
