Also Known As:

·         Removal of the ovaries

·         Laparoscopic surgery

·         Laparoscopic ovariectomy

Conditions Treated with Laparoscopic Oophorectomy:

Laparoscopic oophorectomy may be performed in cases of ovarian cysts and ovarian cancer.

Non-Surgical or Other Surgical Alternatives to Laparoscopic Oophorectomy:

There are no comparable non-surgical alternatives to laparoscopic oophorectomy. An open oophorectomy is a surgical alternative.

Anesthesia with Laparoscopic Oophorectomy:

Laparoscopic oophorectomy is performed under general anesthesia, which means that the patient is asleep and completely unaware during the procedure.

Potential Complications from Laparoscopic Oophorectomy:       

Possible risks following laparoscopic oophorectomy include infection, bleeding and a negative reaction to the anesthesia.

Prognosis after Laparoscopic Oophorectomy:

The prognosis for a positive end result following laparoscopic oophorectomy is good. However, the patient will be sterile and will need hormone replacement drugs to manage symptoms related to menopause.

Recovery from Laparoscopic Oophorectomy:

Total recovery from laparoscopic oophorectomy takes three to four weeks.
