Nerve damage may also occur as a result of knee replacement surgery because the peroneal nerve resides close to the tibia bone. In fact, nerve damage is one reason why some patients with knee replacement complain of persistent lateral knee pain and loss of function. 

Consult orthopedists, who will explain you in detail about the complications of knee replacement surgery. Hope our answer helps you.
