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.
The entire staff is wonderful, very accommodating when scheduling an appointment and Dr. Stevens is very attentive listening to all concerns. Highly recommended.
I had wonderful care by Dr. Stevens. He took the time to listen to what I said & validated my concerns. Never kept me waiting and has flexible office hours. I am extremely pleased with my treatment.
Wonderful care. Great staff, helpful and efficient. Dr. Stevens got me healed up and back to work.
My family loves Dr Stevens we have been his patients for many years. He treats us like family. Wouldn’t go anywhere else.
Everyone at the office is extremely professional and friendly. Appointments are easily made and of course the doctors are great!
Very nice and polite!!! They make sure that you’re treated the right way.
