The excision of your ganglion will depend on its size and whereabouts it is on your body. There are two types of surgery that can be performed.
The first is open surgery where your doctor makes a medium-sized cut over the area of the affected joint or tendon and removes the ganglion cyst.
The second is a type of keyhole surgery (arthroscopic) where your doctor makes a series of smaller cuts and a tiny camera with a light at the end of it (arthroscope) is used to see inside your joint. Using the arthroscope as a guide they then pass special instruments through the cuts to remove the cyst.
The procedure can take between 20 and 45 minutes depending on the technique used and is performed under either local or general anaesthetic.
