Ganglion cysts are commonly found in the hand. Since they aren’t cancerous, they are generally considered harmless. Even though they can occur in various areas, they tend to develop more often on the wrist than anywhere else. These cysts can appear, disappear and change their size quickly. If you have a cyst that is interfering with your normal everyday life, or it is unsightly to look at, there are a number of different treatment options out there. You can schedule your ganglion excision surgery with I Need A Surgery at an Ambulatory Surgery Center near you.
Most of the time, these cysts form a lump that is easily visible, although smaller cysts can sometimes remain hidden beneath the surface. Even though they don’t normally produce a number of other symptoms, cysts will often put pressure on any nerves passing through your joints. Because of the added pressure, it can cause tingling, weakness and pain. Large cysts will often cause many people to be concerned with their appearance.
The surgery involves getting rid of the cyst, as well as the part of the tendon sheath or joint capsule that is involved with it. Even after having surgery, there is still a chance that the ganglion might come back. A small incision is used to gain access to the cyst, so that way it can be cut out. Since it is done on an outpatient basis, you won’t have to worry about any extended hospital stays. Sutures are used to close the incision site.
After the surgery, you can expect to have some discomfort, tenderness and swelling of the surgical site. You can often return to your normal activities within about two to six weeks following your procedure.
I Need A Surgery can get you the procedure through the Surgery Center Network for $3,100, versus having to pay $31,000 if you were to book the procedure through the hospital on your own. Pricing is exclusive of any implants or other hardware and is only an average. Your actual cost might be higher or lower.
