The NEON study has now received OCTRU Green Light approval and will soon open to recruitment at its first site.

NEON is studying the best way to treat finger nerve injuries. The study will be comparing exploration and washout with microsurgical repair against exploration and washout alone for patients with digital nerve injuries.

The NEON study will make a big contribution to hand surgery, and we are very excited to start recruiting and in turn answering this important research question.
