About Ganglionectomy 

Ganglion cyst removal, popularly known as a ganglionectomy, refers to a surgical procedure that is carried out to remove a cyst from the hand, wrist, foot, or other part of your body. A ganglion cyst is a swollen, closed sac under the skin. The sac may emerge from the sheath of a tendon or joint. Tendons link muscle to bones, and the sheath is a thin sleeve of elastic tissue that wraps around the outside of a tendon. The cyst contains fluid similar to joint fluid, the clear fluid in knees, shoulders, and other joints.

The need to remove a ganglion cyst emerges if:

  • It’s causing extreme pain.
  • It’s getting bigger and is restricting joint motion.
  • It’s pressing or pushing on vital organs, arteries, nerves, or veins.

The procedure

The patient will be given a general, regional, or local anesthetic. Local and regional anesthetics numb part of the body while the patient remains awake. He may be given a sedative along with a local or regional anesthetic to relax the patient and reduce anxiety. A general anesthetic relaxes the muscles and puts you to sleep. All three types of anesthesia should keep the person from experiencing pain during the surgery. Your healthcare provider will cut around the cyst and remove it. Your provider will then close the cut with stitches.

Generally, the patient can go home following the day after the surgery is done.

Patients who face ganglion cysts are initially prescribed with other treatment methods, including:

  • Steroid injections, specifically cortisone injections
  • Cyst aspiration – This suctions out the fluid inside the cyst using a syringe or needle. Studies show that patients who undergo cyst aspiration for three times have a significantly reduced risk of recurrences.
  • Finger or wrist splint, depending on the location of the ganglion cyst – By restricting the movement of the affected body part, the splint effectively reduces the accumulation of fluid inside the sac.
