Laparoscopic Oophorectomy

A Laparoscopic Oophorectomy is a minimally invasive surgery that removes one or both of your ovaries. The Oophorectomy can be performed alone, or it is often combined with a complete hysterectomy in postmenopausal women. An Oophorectomy is often recommended for women who have uterine cancer or a family history of ovarian cancer.

What to Expect After Laparoscopic Oophorectomy

Most women recover from the laparoscopic Oophorectomy fully after 6 weeks. It is possible to return to normal activities in 2 weeks. This surgery usually requires an overnight hospital stay and so you will need to be prepared for that.
