Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy

Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy

Laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy is a surgical procedure used to remove cysts that have formed on the ovaries. Most of the cysts in the ovary go away without any kind of treatment. But if you need surgery to remove a cyst, it can be a laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy.

 It is a minimally invasive technique that involves making small incisions in the abdomen and using specialized tools and a laparoscope (a thin, lighted instrument with a camera) to visualize and remove the cysts.

The main causes of Laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy 

The surgeons of the Punya Hospitals, explain the main causes of ovarian cystectomy which are:

1. Hormonal Disorders (PCOS)

2. Ovulation 

3. Cancer 

4. Pelvic inflammatory disease 


When To Consult A Doctor Post Surgery

Experts of Punya Hospital advise consulting a doctor post-surgery when

1. The part around your incisions becomes reddish and painful. 

2. Consult a doctor immediately if you are not able to pee or it hurts while peeing. 

3. Pelvic pain 

4. Symptoms of flu or fever. 

5. Severe vaginal bleeding.

Procedure Of Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy

During the procedure, the patient is placed under general anesthesia. The surgeon at Punya Hospitals makes a few small incisions in the lower abdomen and inserts the laparoscope and other surgical instruments through these incisions. The laparoscope provides the surgeon with a magnified view of the ovaries, allowing them to identify and remove the cysts.

The surgeon carefully separates the cyst from the ovarian tissue and removes it through one of the small incisions. In some cases, the entire ovary may need to be removed. The incisions are then closed with sutures or surgical glue.

Recovery Time

The doctors at Punya Hospital are experts in the field of healthcare over the last 23+ years, thus they have effective knowledge about post-recovery. 

Professionals at Punya suggested that after the surgery, the patient may experience some discomfort and pain, which can be managed with pain medications. Most patients can go home the same day as the procedure or the following day. Recovery time varies depending on the size and location of the cyst, but most patients can resume their normal activities within a few days to a week.
