Ovarian Removal (oophorectomy) is a treatment for cancer or to prevent cancer, remove a large ovarian cyst, remove an abscess, or treat endometriosis. Surgery may take out a portion of an ovary, an entire ovary (unilateral oophorectomy), or both ovaries (bilateral oophorectomy). If both are removed, menstruation stops and a woman cannot have children. The procedure usually is performed by laparoscopy, involving a few small abdominal incisions, including one in the belly button with the patient under spinal or general anesthesia. Surgery could last 45 to 90 minutes. Most laparoscopic patients will not spend the night in the hospital. Patients who have had ovaries removed by open surgery (laparotomy) may have a hospital stay of one to three days. Hormone replacement therapy may be needed if both ovaries were removed.
