Neurectomy is the surgical cutting through or removal of a nerve or a section of a nerve. This procedure may be performed, rarely, in cases of chronic pain where other treatments have failed. Neurectomy may cause some degree of numbness, and a stump neuroma may develop over time, which can cause pain, in some cases worse than the original condition.

A vestibulary neurectomy is a surgical procedure that may be used to correct vertigo problems caused by Ménière's disease. The operation severs the vestibular nerve in the ear.
