Excision of Soft Tissue Masses
During this outpatient procedure, the physician removes a mass that has formed beneath the skin of the foot. This animation will show the removal of the most common type of soft tissue mass (a ganglion cyst). A ganglion cyst is a fluid-filled sac that is connected to a joint capsule or tendon sheath. Ganglion cysts commonly form near the ankle.
Our Simi Valley office and Porter Ranch office and Orthopedic Walk-In Clinic will be closed on Friday, October 11 due to the fires. Services at our other locations may be affected as well due to travel conditions; however, we will try to let everyone know if their appointment or surgery is affected. Please stay safe and contact us at (818) 901-6600 if you would like to reschedule your appointment for any reason. We apologize for any inconvenience.x
