• Ovarian Cyst Removal

    Ovarian Cysts are very commonly occurring fluid-filled sacs formed in the ovaries. They are particularly common during the childbearing years.

    Symptoms of Ovarian Cyst

    Most of the symptoms match the early pregnancy symptoms like:

    • Nausea & vomiting

    • Abdominal swelling or bloating

    • Pelvic pain before or during the menstrual cycle

    • Painful bowel movements

    • Breast tenderness

    • Fever

    • Pain during sex

    • Fainting or dizziness

    Diagnosis of Ovarian Cyst

    Ovarian cysts are generally observed during a routine pelvic examination. A confirmation is done by performing an ultrasound, CT scan and MRI of the abdomen.

    Laparoscopy for Ovarian Cyst

    Ovarian cyst of small size can be removed by laparoscopy. The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia through small incisions in the abdomen. One of the incisions is used to insert a port (nozzle) that fills the carbon dioxide gas into the abdomen to inflate it. Now laparoscope is inserted through another incision. A laparoscope is a telescope lookalike with a light and camera on the end. It allows the surgeon to clearly view inside of the abdomen on the monitor outside. Now using other surgical instruments, cyst is removed and kept intact for histopathological evaluation. On completion of the procedure, carbon dioxide is released and incisions are closed with sutures or staples, or covered with glue-like bandage.

    • Less damage to the surrounding tissues

    • Faster recovery

    • Very less pain during and after the procedure

    • Smaller incisions

    • Negligible risks and complications
