Factors that affect Oophorectomy Cost in India
An important expense when it comes to your Oophorectomy is going to be your gynecologist’s fees. IndiCure recommends experienced, skilled, board-certified surgeons who are capable of delivering successful surgeries. The charges may vary depending on the experience of the surgeon, popularity, and the approach to treatment.
Type and Technique of Oophorectomy
Whether oophorectomy is done as a standalone procedure or a part of another procedure determines the overall cost of the surgery. The cost also varies whether the surgery is done as an open procedure or laparoscopic, or robotic surgery.
Type of Surgical Approach
A significant portion of the overall cost of the surgery arises from the use of any customized surgical instruments or specialized technology. With the hopes of improving patient care, new techniques and technologies are often introduced to the surgical process. Such innovative advancements in the surgical approach can increase costs.
Having your Oophorectomy in an accredited surgical facility by skilled and qualified medical staff is a critical factor. Moreover, the geographical location of this facility also affects the initial quote. But, IndiCure provides you with a projected estimate that will be affordable.

What is Oophorectomy?
Oophorectomy is the surgical removal of the ovaries. A unilateral oophorectomy is when one of your ovaries is removed. Bilateral oophorectomy refers to the removal of both ovaries at the same time.
This procedure may be used to treat:
- pelvic inflammatory disease
- chronic pelvic pain
- ectopic pregnancy
- benign tumors
- large ovarian cysts
Oophorectomy is a procedure that can be done on its own, although it’s more likely to be part of a multistep procedure. Whether or not it is, it is determined by the cause for the procedure.
The ovaries are frequently removed in conjunction with a salpingectomy, which removes the fallopian tubes. If you’re having an oophorectomy to reduce your risk of ovarian cancer, this might be a possibility. Because the ovaries and fallopian tubes share a blood supply, this is the case. A salpingo-oophorectomy is when both surgeries are performed at the same time.
When is Oophorectomy required ?
You would need oophorectomy, or a surgeon may remove one or both of your ovaries for a variety of reasons, including the following:
- Endometriosis: Endometriosis is a condition in which cells from the uterus (womb) migrate and develop elsewhere.
- Cysts: Cysts are benign (non-cancerous) growths.
- Preventative surgery for people at high risk of breast or ovarian cancer.
- Ovarian cancer : It is a type of cancer that affects the ovaries.
- Torsion of the ovary: It is a condition when the ovary coils around the blood supply, causing intense discomfort, this disease occurs.
- Tubo-ovarian abscess: It is an infection of the ovary or its surrounding area, commonly known as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) or tubo-ovarian abscess (TOA).
How is Oophorectomy done?
You’ll be given anaesthetics to put you to sleep throughout your oophorectomy procedure. During the procedure, you will be completely asleep.
There are two ways to perform an oophorectomy:
Laparotomy: The surgeon makes a single long incision in your lower belly to access your ovaries with a laparotomy. The surgeon isolates each ovary from its blood supply and surrounding tissue before removing it.
Minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery: Laparoscopic surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery in which the physician makes a few very small incisions in your belly. A tube containing a tiny camera and special surgical equipment are inserted through one incision and unique surgical tools are inserted through the others. The camera sends video to an operating room monitor, which the surgeon uses to guide the surgical tools. Each ovary is placed in a pouch, segregated from its blood supply and surrounding tissue. One of the little incisions is used to extract the pouch out of your abdomen.
Your situation will determine whether you have an open, laparoscopic, or robotic oophorectomy. Oophorectomy performed laparoscopically or robotically usually results in a faster recovery, less pain, and a shorter hospital stay. However, these procedures aren’t suitable for everyone, and in certain situations, a laparoscopic procedure may need to be converted to an open procedure during the procedure.
What is the Recovery after Oophorectomy like?
The time it takes you to resume normal activities after an oophorectomy is determined by a variety of factors, including the reason for your surgery and how it was conducted. After surgery, most people can return to full activities in two to four weeks. Consult your surgeon about exercise, driving, sexual limits, and overall activity levels.
What Results Can I Expect from Oophorectomy?
In many circumstances, an oophorectomy can save a woman’s life. Women who have had one ovary removed but still have their uterus may detect no difference in their hormones and menstruation patterns. The biggest difference will be seen in women who have had both ovaries removed.

At the age of 49, my fibroids were giving me huge trouble. I had consulted a few local gynecologists but was not very happy and satisfied. One of my friends who had been to India suggested IndiCure and their responses amazed me. They answered all my queries to my satisfaction. I traveled to India for my surgery and had a successful surgery.
Very happy with the services and outcome. Thank you very much Indicure.
I appreciate the professionalism, attention to detail and care that I received from Dr Wagh, Dr Ruchika and Shweta at IndiCure. I am very pleased with the treatments and would certainly recommend them to anyone thinking about traveling abroad for medical reasons.
Procedure: Uterine artery embolization, Abdominoplasty, Breast reduction and Lift
I had been having extremely heavy periods for more than 6 months. I consulted a few gynecologists who suggested I may need to remove the uterus, which I was very skeptical about. My husband had heard a lot about Indian surgeons and thought about consulting them. We searched on the Internet and came across IndiCure. They sent us the opinion of 4 gynecologists and all seemed very promising.
We came to India, got a few tests done and finally got rid of my fibroids through a Oophorectomy surgery. Extremely thankful to IndiCure for the excellent treatment and facilities.
Very Happy with the professionalism IndiCure people showed on my visit to India for my treatment. I felt welcomed, they made me feel at ease, answered all my queries and were there to help me all through the way. I am so happy that I chose IndiCure for my medical treatment abroad.
Thank you Ruchika.

Frequently Asked Questions
The female reproductive organs of the fallopian tube (salpingectomy) and ovaries (oophorectomy) are removed during salpingo-oophorectomy. It is regarded as major surgery since it necessitates anesthesia, an overnight stay in the hospital, and the removal of body components.
You will not be able to menstruate after your procedure (getting your period). You may have typical menopause symptoms such as night sweats, hot flashes, and vaginal dryness.
After a unilateral oophorectomy, women can have healthy full-term pregnancies, although their fertility path may require additional planning and monitoring.
Following the surgical excision of one or both ovaries, ovarian remnant syndrome occurs when small bits of ovarian tissue are mistakenly left in the pelvic cavity. The remaining tissue has the potential to expand, create cysts, or hemorrhage, causing pain.
After oophorectomy, menopause occurs. This deprives the body of hormones generated in the ovaries, such as oestrogen and progesterone, resulting in issues such as menopause signs and symptoms like hot flashes and vaginal dryness.
