Suggestions for a monitor mount for a thick desk

I bought a Cintiq and I'm doing research on monitor mounts for up to 27` inch monitors and for the 22` cintiq. I have a desk where the width might be too thick to mount from the side or back. I've noticed that most desks have an indent, or space around them that allow for easing mounting. My desk has the same thickness on all four sides. Are there any solutions to this?

How thick is your desk? Most arm mounts can expand to about 3"? If it's any thicker, you may have to drill a hole and do a grommet mount.

About 5-6 inches.

There are very choices for desks that thick - nothing mainstream. Have you considered wall mounting?

Any suggestions? It is a great mount.

sorry for bringing back the dead, but I wonder what the solution was for OP, or if there are any other options?

I have the same desk, and now trying to mount 1 monitor.

I currently have all of my cables (2 power cables, 2 DP cables, power + 3 slim ethernet cables) routed through this opening.
What mount can I do without making a mess of cables

Careful mounting a heavy monitors on those desks even with a grommet mount. I do believe the top of those desks is hollow and can separate in time with the constant pressure.
