Ovarian Cystectomy

An ovarian cyst is a fluid‐filled sac in or on the ovary. Majority of cysts go away on their own and are not cancerous. Sometimes, cysts can cause symptoms, grow larger or twist, or have an appearance that raises suspicion for cancer. In these situations the cyst may need to be removed. Minimally invasive laparoscopic surgical techniques can be used to remove cysts, or sometimes the ovary.
