Ganglion cysts that form along the tendons and joints in the ankle and foot sometimes must be removed by surgery if the cyst does not shrink on its own or draining the cyst is not successful. During a cyst removal, the cyst is cut from the tendon or joint and taken out. Usually, the procedure is performed on an outpatient basis with local anesthesia. Recovery time and post-surgery treatment vary based on the size and location of the cyst. Nerve, blood vessel, and/ or tendon damage can occur as a result of the surgery, but this is not common. Some cysts recur.

Been dealing with heel pain for over 6 months. A friend of mine referred me to Dr.Green. Got in very quickly. Everyone is super nice and caring. Dr.Green took his time to explain everything in detail, my options and treatment. Would highly recommend him!
Dear Dr. Green, Thank you and your wonderful office and surgical staff for the excellent care I received. I think my foot is gorgeous and now I’m getting ready to paint my toenails. I haven’t done that for years!
This team is soo caring and professional! They’re a true example of Service Excellence. Dr. Stephanie Jameson is such an amazing doc! At my last visit I saw Jennifer and Katherine and they were so awesome! I don’t want to be unfair with the team members who took care of me before because every one […]
I love that Dr. Jameson actually sat down with me, and we looked at the x-rays together. She pointed out everything I needed to see then circled the problem area and explained it so that I knew exactly what my problem was. She was very professional and knowledgeable. I will definitely recommend her to friends.
