NEURECTOMY

Removal of a section of nerve to eliminate or reduce sensation in part of an animal's body. This procedure is often performed to alleviate pain within the horse's hoof. After such a neurectomy, the horse may not be considered entirely sound because the mechanical cause of the problem still exists.
