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.

I am extremely pleased with every experience I have ever had at this office. And I tell everyone I know that I have the best “foot doctor” in Kansas City. Last week, I was concerned about some bruising on my foot from an injury and I was due to run a half marathon at the end of […]
As a new patient, I was pleasantly surprised at how friendly the front desk person was and this made the whole experience start off great! I really enjoyed all the staff including Dr. C. and felt like they really care for their patients. As I was waiting, a much older man came in to meet […]
