- To submit the specimen removed for definitive pathologic diagnosis
There are, of course, potential complications and risks to ganglion cyst surgery, as with every medical procedure. For a list of potential complications/risks visit our section on Ganglion Cyst Surgery.
After the surgery to remove the cyst is completed, you will need to walk in a special surgical shoe with crutches or another assistive device. Your doctor should go over post-operative care procedures with you and it is important to follow their instructions.
