Description

The nerves of the gluteal region originate from the lumbosacral plexus. The nerves include the superior and inferior gluteal nerves and enter the gluteal region by passing through the greater sciatic foramen. The superior gluteal nerve provides motor innervation to the gluteus medius, gluteus minimus, and tensor fasciae latae, while the inferior gluteal nerve provides motor innervation to the gluteus maximus muscle.
