Overview

Oophorectomy is a surgical procedure to remove one or both the ovaries (almond-shaped organs that sits on each side of the uterus in the pelvis). The ovaries contain eggs and produce hormones that control the menstrual cycle.

Oophorectomy is usually performed to prevent or treat certain conditions, such as ovarian cancer or endometriosis.

There are several types of Oophorectomy:

  • Bilateral Oophorectomy-this surgery involves the removal of both the ovaries.
  • Unilateral Oophorectomy-this surgical procedure involves the removal of only one ovary.
  • Salpingo-oophorectomy-this surgical procedure involves the removal of an ovary and fallopian tube (the small organ that guides eggs from the ovary to the uterus)
  • Bilateral Salpingo-oophorectomy-this surgery involves the removal of both ovaries and both fallopian tubes.
  • Hysterectomy with Salpingo-oophorectomy-this surgical procedure involves the removal of the uterus and one or both ovaries and fallopian tubes.

Symptoms

The doctor may recommend Oophorectomy due to the following reasons:

  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Benign tumors (noncancerous growths)
  • Large ovarian cysts
  • BRCA gene mutation
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Endometriosis (a condition where cells that grow inside the uterus start growing elsewhere)
