CPT Code: 26160
Ganglion cyst removal, or ganglionectomy, is the removal of a fluid-filled sac on the skin of the hand or finger. The cyst is attached to a tendon or a joint through its fibers and contains synovial fluid, which is the clear liquid that lubricates the joints and tendons of the body. Surgery involves removing the cyst as well as part of the involved joint capsule or tendon sheath, which is considered the root of the ganglion. Even after excision, there is a small chance the ganglion will return.
