Ovarian Cyst Laparoscopy in Hyderabad | Dr Geetha Nagasree
Ovarian cyst laparoscopy in Hyderabad: A surgical oncologist removes ovarian cysts that persist and cause symptoms. Such cysts are usually removed surgically.
A lady gynaecologist or a lady surgical oncologist who specializes in the laparoscopic surgery recommends surgery if she suspects that the cyst could cause harm and symptoms could aggravate. Laparoscopic surgery may also be recommended if the cyst that persists could turn cancerous. There are two types of surgical procedures to remove ovarian cysts: 1. Laparoscopic surgery 2. Open surgery (Laparotomy). Both these surgeries are carried out under general anaesthesia.
Laparoscopy uses a laparoscope to closely look and treat the problems (ovarian growth or cysts). In laparotomy, a single large incision (cut) is made in the abdomen to treat ovarian masses or cysts.
When is Laparotomy Performed?
Both types of surgeries are helpful in diagnosing and treating pelvic infections, fibroids, adhesions, and ovarian cysts. However, laparotomy is recommended when a surgical oncologist suspects ovarian cancer or when the cyst is very large.
In a laparotomy procedure, the surgeon has the best view of female reproductive organs and abdominal area. The doctor removes a non-cancerous cyst – which is large and causing symptoms, leaving the ovary (cystectomy). If a surgical oncologist detects ovarian cancer, then entire ovary or both the ovaries are removed (oophorectomy). A lady surgeon can easily remove ovarian cancer by this procedure.
Ovarian Cyst Laparoscopy
Laparoscopic surgery or keyhole surgery or Minimally Invasive Surgery. This is the preferred mode of surgery for removing most of the cysts.
In this type of procedure, a lady surgeon makes small cuts or incisions. Three to four small incisions measuring a few centimetres are made in the abdomen. Gas is blown into the pelvis to access ovaries. A small tube with a camera at its tip (laparoscope) is passed through one of the holes so that the surgeon can see internal organs. The surgeon inserts surgical instruments to cut and remove the cyst. After removing the cyst, the instruments are removed and the incision is closed with stitches. It is a preferred procedure as the recovery time is short and it causes less pain.
Why is Ovarian Cyst Laparoscopy Done?
Laparoscopic surgery may be advised in the following situations:
- If there is a mass or growth or cyst which is prominent.
- If the cyst is large.
- If the growth, cyst or mass is present in one or both the ovaries.
- If the cyst does not get smaller and go away after being watched for two to three months.
- If a cyst is detected in a menopausal woman
- If the cyst is detected in an older woman
- If the cyst is solid and causing pain
If a gynecologic oncologist or lady surgical oncologist suspects that the cyst could be ovarian cancer, then she will recommend additional tests to confirm the diagnosis.
Laparoscopy is done to confirm the diagnosis of an ovarian cyst, remove a cyst that is causing symptoms, and rule out ovarian cancer. If you are looking for Ovarian Cyst Laparoscopy in Hyderabad, then meet me personally.
