Laparoscopic Bilateral Ovarian Cystectomy
ovarian cysts are solid or fluid-filled sacs or pockets (cysts) within or on the surface of an ovary. Simple ovarian cysts are prevalent and harmless & reported in around 10 million cases yearly. Ovarian cysts usually disappear on their own, but if they don’t, they can cause trouble later. There are different kinds of ovarian cysts:
- non-malignant, and
- can be follicular or corpus luteum cysts.
Generally, ovarian cysts are harmless, but sometimes they can cause complications like:
- Ovarian torsion: Cysts that enlarge can cause the ovary to move, increasing the chance of painful twisting of your ovary (ovarian torsion).
- Rupture: A cyst that ruptures can cause severe pain and internal bleeding.
Symptoms of ovarian cysts:
- Lower abdomen or pelvis pain
- Fullness or heaviness in stomach
Hysterectomy is the permanent solution to these problems but you can’t conceive after hysterectomy.
For other conditions — including fibroids, endometriosis and uterine prolapse — you may be able to try less invasive treatments first. Hysterectomy risks like infection after the surgery, blood clots, excessive bleeding, and early menopause.
Laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy treatment in Gurgaon
- Most ovarian cysts that are less than 1 cm disappear on their own within a few months. So watchful waiting is advised in most cases.
- Birth control pills can also be a treatment modality.
- And surgery like oophorectomy or laparoscopy is also a treatment choice for more giant cysts.
- We can remove some cysts without removing the ovary (ovarian cystectomy).
- Laparoscopy or robotic myomectomy can also help in the removal of ovarian cysts. A laparoscope is inserted through a small incision in the abdomen to remove cysts.
- Robotic myomectomy gives a magnified, 3D view of your uterus, offering more precision, flexibility, and agility than possible using other techniques.
- Laparoscopy is the best and latest technique for removing ovarian as it has more minor complications than open surgery and less scarring and blood loss.
