Minimally Invasive Surgery

Oophorectomy is the removal of one (Unilateral) or both (Bilateral) ovaries. Similarly to removing the uterus or any other organ, the main vessels providing blood supply to the ovary are secured using a suture or diathermy and the organ is then removed.
An oophorectomy can be performed using an open cut (laparotomy) or laparoscopy. Laparotomy may be required when cancer is suspected or previously confirmed. In all other instances a laparocopic oophorectomy is the preferred option.
