Description

Oophorectomy is a surgical procedure for removing one or both the ovaries. Ovaries are an important reproductive organ that stores and releases eggs responsible for fertilization and produces hormones that control menstrual periods. 

Oophorectomy is generally done in conjunction with other uterus removal surgery (hysterectomy). Oophorectomy is commonly called Ovary Removal Surgery.

Indication

The procedure is recommended by the doctor in case of

  • Ovarian cancer
  • Benign tumor in the ovary
  • Endometriosis - a condition in which a tissue that normally grows inside the uterus, has grown outside.
  • Twisting of ovaries
  • Twisting of ovaries
  • When hormones produced by the ovaries increase the possibility of breast cancer
  • Abnormalities in genes called BRCA1 and BRCA2 are suspected to develop ovarian cancer before the age of 70 
Pre-Procedure

To prepare for the surgery, the doctor may suggest

  • Fasting for 8 to 12 hours prior to the surgery
  • Drinking laxative a before the surgery, to clear the intestines 
  • Stop taking certain medicines
During-Procedure

Oophorectomy is performed under general anesthesia, and generally takes about 1 to 2 hours. Depending on the expected complexity, the doctor will either choose open or laparoscopic surgery.

During the surgery:

  • In open surgery, an incision is made across the abdomen to access the ovaries. Ovaries will be separated from the blood vessles and the tissues around it. Ovaries will be surgically removed and incision will be sutured.
  • In laparoscopic surgery, a thin tube along with a small camera and specialized equipment is passed through one or more incisions in the abdomen. Then, each ovary will be removed from its surrounding tissue and the blood supply to put in a pouch. The pouch will be taken out of your abdomen through one of the minor incisions. 
Post-Procedure

In most cases, the patients are able to go back home in 1 to 2 days after the surgery. Complete recovery takes around 4 to 6 weeks.

After the surgery, the doctor will recommend to refrain from doing any strenuous physical tasks including sexual activites.

If both the ovaries are removed but the uterus is not, then in most cases the patient can get pregnant through In Vitro Fertilization technique.

Risk and Complication

In rare cases, Oophorectomy may cause

  • Infection
  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding
  • Constipation
  • Injury to adjacent organs
  • Rupture of a tumor, thereby releasing cancerous cellsI

If both the ovaries are removed, the patient may experience premature menopause leading to side effects like:

  • Memory problems
  • Heart disease
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Decrease in sex drive

These side effects can be reduced or prevented by hormone replacement drugs. 

More Info

Ovary Removal Surgery can cost upto INR 75,000 in top Indian hospitals.
