Podiatrists normally recommend surgery to remove Ganglion masses, or cysts. Doctors preform most cyst removal surgeries as an outpatient basis. If you’d want a cyst removed, contact our office.
During this procedure, surgeons will dissect the cysts from the surrounding soft tissues and removed it. The post-surgery recovery period depends on the location of the ganglion and the amount of dissection. In many cases, patients receive a splint or below-the-knee cast. The surgeon can recommend that the patient use crutches for several days to three weeks. This level of protection is necessary if the ganglion is located near the ankle joint.
Cyst removal surgery complications include infection, excessive swelling, and/or nerve damage.
