Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy

Ovarian cysts are nothing to worry about as it comes and goes naturally. But everyone is unique, therefore; it is always advisable to consult your doctor about your present medical condition. If the cyst does not go away easily by the means of natural and allopathic methods, surgery is an option. Cystectomy is a surgical procedure for the removal of ovarian cysts. It can either be done laparoscopically or with an open surgery.

What is laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy?

It is a minimally invasive surgical procedure where a laparoscope (a long thin instrument with a camera attached to one end) is inserted via a small incision close to the navel. The camera in the laparoscope transmits pictures of the pelvis and abdomen to a monitor for the surgeon to view and perform the surgery. Normally, Co2 (carbon dioxide) gas is pumped to the abdomen to create more space to work. If necessary, additional 2 or 3 slits are made in order to pass an instrument that helps to take away the cyst. The entire procedure is under the anaesthesia.

Why is it necessary to remove the cyst?

The cyst generally goes unnoticeable but sometimes it causes sharp pain and discomfort. In such cases, cystectomy is the best option one has.
Other cases where an ovarian cyst may need to be removed are:

  • In case of the cyst being cancerous in nature.
  • If the diameter of the cyst is more than 2.5 inches.
  • If the ovarian cyst is solid in nature (usually they are small fluid-filled sacs).

What are the risks involved?

The risk involved in a laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy is common to any minimally invasive surgery and can be managed very easily. They are:

  • Infection in/around the surgical site.
  • Bleeding during the surgery.
  • Damage to the surrounding organs.

What is the recovery time?

Generally, a laparoscopic operation lasts for 1-2 hours and the patient is released within hours of completing the procedure. How quickly one recovers is related to factors like the patient’s day-to-day activities, lifestyle, habits etc. but almost all woman report that they feel fully recuperated after a month.
