How do gynecologists in Chennai treat ovarian cysts?
Ovarian cysts are quite common but not all ovarian cysts cause symptoms and complications. Ovarian cysts that cause symptoms are much less common, and affect only 1 in every 25 females at some point in their lifetime. Not all ovarian cysts require treatment. Whether or not you need treatment for ovarian cysts will depend on factors like the size of the cyst, your symptoms and your age. As post-menopausal females have a slightly higher risk of developing ovarian cancer, they are usually recommended for surgery for ovarian cysts.
Treatment options for the management and treatment of the cysts can include-
Watchful waiting and Observation- In most cases, especially for simple ovarian cysts, our gynecologists in Mumbai recommend ‘watchful waiting’ where you will not receive immediate treatment. This is because in most cases, ovarian cysts disappear on their own, without the need for treatment. An ultrasound scan is usually required to confirm that this is the case.
If the ovarian cyst or cysts are causing pain and other symptoms, the gynecologist may suggest surgery.
Surgery- If the ovarian cyst is large in size, or if it is causing painful symptoms, it will probably need an ovarian cyst removal surgery. There are two types of procedures for ovarian cyst removal, both are usually carried out under general anesthesia-
Laparoscopic ovarian cyst removal surgery- During this procedure, the surgeon will make 2 or more small incisions in your abdomen area and will insert a small thin tube (a laparoscope) with a camera at one end into one of the incisions to view the uterus. The surgeon will then insert thin surgical instruments through the other incision or incisions to remove the ovarian cyst. Laparoscopic ovarian cyst surgery typically lasts about one hour.
Laparotomy- If your gynecologist suspects that the ovarian cyst is cancerous, a more invasive procedure called a laparotomy might be recommended. During the procedure, a larger incision is made so that the surgeon has better access to the cyst.

Minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery for ovarian cysts in Chennai
We understand that undergoing surgery can cause anxiety. Our experienced and caring team of gynecologists and medical staff will be there with you in every step to reassure you.
Ovarian cysts can be removed using a minimally invasive surgical technique of laparoscopy, which is a type of keyhole surgery where the surgeon makes small incisions in the lower abdomen. With the use of this innovative technique, the surgeon can remove the ovarian cyst through the small incisions in the abdomen. You will have a general anaesthetic before the procedure so that you do not feel anything during the procedure. This is the preferred approach by ovarian cyst doctors in Mumbai because the surgery causes less pain, postoperative complications, helps preserve fertility and lets the female resume normal activity with very less downtime.
Advantages of undergoing laparoscopic ovarian cyst surgery over open surgery
- Shorter hospital stay
- Quick recovery
- Reduced bleeding and tissue handling during the surgery
