Bid farewell to bothersome cysts with a Cyst Excision. This elective procedure removes asymptomatic wrist, hand, or finger cysts using local anesthesia and IV sedation. With a small incision, the cyst's stalk and roots are carefully excised – expect symptoms to decrease quickly, if not immediately. Ganglion cysts, usually non-cancerous and fluid-filled, can cause pain, restricted movement, and tenderness when large or pressing on nerves. Diagnosis is easy, and minimally invasive cyst aspiration may be recommended before surgery. Book an appointment for prompt symptom relief and expert care.
Cyst excision is an elective surgical procedure to remove asymptomatic wrist, hand, or finger cyst. The procedure is usually performed using local anesthesia and IV sedation. After the patient is relaxed and can feel no discomfort or pain, the following steps are performed:

Ganglion cysts are small non-cancerous fluid-filled lumps that develop on the wrist, hand, and fingers. Ganglion cysts are common and usually, do not produce symptoms or produce symptoms that nonsurgical treatment options easily treat. A ganglion cyst that is large and presses a nerve or tendon may be symptomatic. The following are common symptoms:
Ganglion cysts are usually easy to palpate and visualize so diagnosis is easy. A minimally invasive cyst aspiration may be recommended before surgery to see if aspirating cyst fluid improves symptoms. Patients who experience symptoms and make an appointment with us can look forward to symptom relief in as short a time frame as possible.
