Excision: Involves excision of the cyst dissecting it free from the surrounding tissues.

Another option: Arthroscopic-assisted ganglion excision is minimally invasive, relatively painless, and has a lower reported recurrence rate. Typically performed under general anethesia, and through small portals, the ganglion stalk can be visualized and excised with precision instrumentation.
