Ganglions are fluid filled pockets arising from joints in your body, often painless but their size and location can sometimes be troubling. Often a simple needle decompression under local anaesthetic resolves the problem. When this occasionally fails, surgical removal may be required.
The surgery is performed as a day case under local or general anaesthetic, depending on the location of the ganglion
You will be fit to return to work/drive 2-3 days post surgery
You will have a follow-up consultation 6 weeks after having your surgery
Please always remember to ask Mr Parker at your consultation reference any specific recovery queries relating to your job or lifestyle.
