Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy
A Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy is a type of minimally invasive surgery in which small incisions (cuts) between 0.5 to 1 cm are made on the abdominal wall through which an instrument called a laparoscope can be placed. The abdominal cavity is able to be visualized by distending it with an absorbable gas, typically, carbon dioxide. The laparoscope allows the surgeon to visualize the abdomen and pelvis, uterus and ovaries. Small instruments can be placed through the small incisions allowing the surgeon to remove the ovarian cyst and usually leave the ovary intact.
