Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy


Laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy is used for removing cysts in the ovaries  with absolute indications for ovarian cystectomy including definitive diagnostic confirmation of an ovarian cyst, removal of symptomatic cysts, and exclusion of ovarian cancer. A laparoscope is inserted into the abdomen, usually at the sight of your navel, by making a small incision. A laparoscope is a thin tube with a camera on the end. Additional incisions are made on your abdomen to gain access and create more space in the abdomen between your abdominal wall and internal organs. Surgical instruments will be used to remove the cyst.
