Ganglion Cyst Surgery

If the cyst continues to be present, the doctor may remove it surgically. To help prevent another cyst from forming, a section of the tissue that lines the tendon or joint is also removed along with the cyst. During this procedure, usually only the hand or arm is numbed, and the patient is free to return home a few hours after surgery. However, the hand may be in a splint for several weeks to allow time for healing.
