Targeted Muscle Reinnervation (TMR) is a reproducible procedure for effective prevention and treatment of neuropathic pain. Recent studies have demonstrated that TMR is more successful in treating neuroma pain than the standard method of neuroma excision and burying into muscle. The fundamental concept of TMR is that providing severed nerve endings a place to go and something to do facilitates normal healing. Future studies will continue to support the use of TMR for any region of the body where an injured nerve may develop a painful neuroma.
