The peroneal nerve is one of the two end portions of the sciatic nerve
. In simpler terms, the peroneal nerve is located in the leg
. Starting above the popliteal fossa, the nerve branches into two terminal branches - the deep peroneal and superficial peroneal nerves - as well as four collateral nerves that are the articular knee muscle
, cutaneous peroneal, sural peroneal, and upper anterior tibial muscle
