Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy in Dubai
Ovarian cysts are a common reason for women to visit emergency rooms and gynaecology clinics. Do you know about 10% of women have surgery for an ovarian mass at some point in their lives? Laparoscopic surgery can be used to perform the majority of benign ovarian cystectomies.
A laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy in Dubai by Dr Pranjali Singh aims to minimize blood loss, perform efficient surgery, and preserve ovarian tissue. It is critical to keep the cyst intact in order to avoid the spread of undiagnosed cancer and, in the case of a dermoid cyst, to avoid chemical peritonitis. Endometriomas, on the other hand, can be ruptured.
What is Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy?
Laparoscopic cystectomy is a minimally invasive procedure for identifying and removing cysts or masses in one or both ovaries. A doctor may recommend a laparoscopic cystectomy if a cyst needs to be examined more closely or if a patient is experiencing symptoms as a result of a cyst.
This procedure of ovarian cyst removal in Dubai is the preferred surgical procedure for adolescent and reproductive-age patients because it preserves the patient’s ovary and fertility. A surgeon may recommend a different surgical approach and/or removal of the entire ovary if the cyst is excessively large, malignant cancer is suspected, or the patient has reached menopausal age.
Symptoms for laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy procedure
A woman’s age, health history, symptoms, and cyst type can all influence whether our doctor recommends surgical removal or ovarian cystectomy in Dubai.
Surgery may be advised if:
- The cyst is larger than 3 inches in diameter.
- After two to three menstrual cycles, the cyst does not shrink or disappear.
- The cyst does not appear to be a functional cyst (one that grows in response to ovulation).
- The cyst is causing some sort of discomfort, bleeding, or pain.
During the surgery
You will be put to sleep with anaesthesia prior to the procedure of ovarian cyst treatment in Dubai. A laparoscope, which is a thin tube with a camera on one of the ends, is inserted into the abdomen through a small incision, usually near the navel. On your abdomen, additional incisions will be made. In the abdomen, air will be used to generate more space between your abdominal wall and internal organs. The cyst will be removed using surgical instruments.
After the surgery
Typically, you will spend at least one night in the hospital. You may experience some discomfort and vaginal spotting at home, which is normal, and returning to work and regular activities is not recommended until at least two weeks after your procedure.
Our laparoscopic surgery specialist, Dr. Pranjali Singh, performs minimally invasive procedures that enable you to go home the same day. You should stand up and walk for a few minutes as soon as you are able to improve your circulation. This brings down the risk of blood clots in the legs.
In the days and weeks following your surgery, make sure to get plenty of rest and light exercise. Avoid heavy lifting and strenuous exercise. After 4-6 weeks, you should be able to resume your normal activities if you have had abdominal surgery. After your laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy in Dubai, you could be fully recovered in as little as 2 weeks.
