Laparoscopic Oophorectomy is a minimally invasive surgery to remove one or both ovaries. It is performed through small incisions in the abdomen, using a laparoscope, which is a thin, tube-like instrument with a camera attached.
Preparation of Oophorectomy
Prior to the surgery, you will be given general anesthesia, which will put you to sleep. You may also be given antibiotics to prevent infection.
The surgeon will make three or four small incisions in your abdomen. The laparoscope will be inserted through one incision, and the surgical tools will be inserted through the others. The surgeon will use the laparoscope to view your ovaries and then remove them using the surgical tools.
You will stay in the hospital for one to two days after the surgery. You will be given pain medication to help you manage any discomfort. You should be able to return to your normal activities within one to two weeks.
