Dr Carmen Munteanu in Melbourne offers surgical relief for Ganglions; a fluid-filled cyst commonly located in the wrist and hand as a result of overuse syndrome. They usually arise adjacent to joints or synovial lined tendons, and first appear as a swelling under the skin.
Dr Carmen Munteanu is a specialist plastic surgeon and armlift expert. She provides dedicated and compassionate care to her patients who wish to undergo this surgery.
A ganglion is often a result of an overuse syndrome, or may be related to arthritis or following a hand injury.
In mild cases, especially if hand function is not affected, only observation is needed. For more severe cases, various treatment options are available in order to straighten the finger(s). These options may include needles or open surgery.
Surgical removal of ganglions and other tumours of the hand is a safe and effective treatment option. This form of hand surgery can be performed under local or possibly general anaesthesia.
At your initial consultation, you will be given a detailed quote for your chosen procedure. This will include a Surgeon’s fee, Anaesthetist fee, Surgical Assistant fee and the hospital fees.
Dr Carmen’s team will provide you a customised fee for your surgery depending on the type of procedure, hospital and how long you want to stay in hospital. An approximate fee range for your arm lift surgery can be provided over the phone when you speak to a Patient Care Advisor. We also provide information on different methods of payment.
