What is Oophorectomy?

Oophorectomy is a surgical treatment that removes one or both of the ovary(s) to reduce the risk of cancer or treat specific pelvic region health concerns. Unilateral oophorectomy is when only one ovary is removed, whereas Bilateral Oophorectomy is when both ovaries are removed. The ovaries are located in the pelvis. The ovaries are reproductive organs that store and release eggs once a month. They also generate hormones that regulate the menstrual cycle, such as oestrogen, because oophorectomy may be done along with removing other organs to lower the high risk of breast cancer or ovarian cancer.

Who is Eligible For The Treatment

This surgery is for those at risk of developing breast cancer, ovarian cancer, endometriosis, or ovarian cysts. However, you should see a medical specialist since, based on your health, they may recommend some other treatments.

How is Oophorectomy Done?

Open abdominal surgery or laparoscopic surgery are also used to perform an oophorectomy.
In open abdominal surgery, the surgeon will make an incision on the abdomen before gently separating the abdominal muscles. To avoid bleeding, blood vessels will be temporarily tied off. The ovary or ovaries will be removed, and the incision sealed.
A thin, cord-like instrument is inserted into a small cut near the navel during a laparoscopic procedure, allowing the surgeon to see and remove the ovaries using a tiny camera. The procedure may leave less visible scars and need less time to recuperate than open abdominal surgery.

What Are the Different Types of Oophorectomies?

Treatment depends on the cause of the ovary removal; your surgeon may additionally suggest one of the following procedures:

  • Unilateral oophorectomy
  • Bilateral oophorectomy
  • Salpingo-oophorectomy
  • Bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy
  • Hysterectomy with salpingo-oophorectomy
