A ganglion cyst is a fluid-filled sac that most commonly develops in the wrist or hand. Some occur in the ankles or feet. If a ganglion cyst presses on a nerve, it may be painful. Depending on its location, a ganglion cyst may restrict movement.
Some cysts do not require any treatment, but others require surgical removal.
In ganglion cyst removal, a doctor will remove the cyst capsule or stalk in order to completely remove the cyst.
At Kayal Orthopaedic Center, we believe that an informed patient is a happy and healthy patient. That’s why we encourage you to ask questions about your upcoming appointment or surgery. It’s also important to provide our team with any important medical records or personal information.

Patients with severe ganglion cysts can benefit from surgical removal. While it does not eliminate the chance of cysts completely, surgery removes the source of discomfort and provides relief.
