Ovarian Cyst Removal

Ovarian Cyst Removal

An ovarian cyst is a fluid-filled sac that may either grow inside your ovaries or on them. They are typically removed by laparoscopy. This procedure involves making small incisions in the abdominal area in order to insert a laparoscope to get a closer view of the cyst and detach it. If the cyst is too large, the gynaecologist may recommend an open surgery or a laparotomy in which a larger cut is made in the lower abdomen. Due to this, the recovery period from a laparotomy will also be longer.

How is it performed?

  • Before the start of the procedure, general anaesthesia is administered.
  • In the case of laparoscopy, the surgeon will make three incisions that measure between 5 mm and 1 cm. One will be made just below the belly button and the other two will be made lower down on either side of the body.
  • A laparoscope will then be inserted into these incisions to examine the cyst and detach them.
  • In the case of a laparotomy, a larger cut will be made in the lower abdomen to remove the cyst. This is mostly done when the cyst is cancerous.
  • There may also be instances when laparoscopy is converted into a laparotomy while the procedure is under progress to ensure the safe removal of the cyst.
