Dr. Supriya Puranik is a highly experienced gynaecologist in Pune with over a decade of experience treating women’s health issues. Oophorectomy is one of the many procedures she specializes in to improve her patient’s quality of life.
What is Oophorectomy?
Oophorectomy (or ovariectomy) is a surgical procedure aimed to remove one or both ovaries, which are two small organs on either side of the uterus that produce hormones and eggs for reproduction. Oophorectomy may be recommended for various medical conditions, such as:
- Ovarian cysts
- Uterine fibroids
- Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
- Chronic pelvic pain and adenomyosis
- Ovarian cancer
- Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR)
Dr. Supriya Puranik evaluates each patient’s medical history and overall health condition to determine which type of Oophorectomy suits them. There are three types of oophorectomies:
- Unilateral Oophorectomy – involves the removal of just one ovary
- Bilateral Oophorectomy – involves removal of both ovaries
- Salpingo-oophorectomy – involves the removal of both the ovaries and fallopian tubes
During the procedure, Dr. Supriya ensures that her patient’s safety and comfort remain her primary focus. Her dedicated staff assisted her in providing a relaxed atmosphere during the entire process.
Risks and Benefits of Oophorectomy
As with any surgery, there are potential risks involved with Oophorectomy; these include adverse reaction to anaesthesia, heavy bleeding, infection, damage to nearby organs, bladder problems and urinary incontinence issues.
Before undergoing Oophorectomy, Dr. Supriya Puranik discusses these risks in detail with every patient so they understand what might happen during their procedure.
On the other hand, there are also many potential benefits associated with undergoing this procedure; some of these include pain relief from ovarian cysts or endometriosis, improved fertility due to removal of polyps or fibroids blocking passageways or scar tissues obstructing egg passage out of the fallopian tube or reduced risk of developing certain cancers including ovarian cancer due to removal.
Recovery and Care
Successful recovery from Oophorectomy is essential to ensure the patient can quickly return to normal activities. After the surgery, our team provides close monitoring and post-operative care, involving regular checkups and follow-up calls throughout the healing process. Additionally, we always encourage the patients to be aware of any symptoms related to underlying conditions that require medical attention.
Undergoing Oophorectomy can be an emotional experience for many women; therefore, our team provides adequate emotional support and counselling. This includes referrals for mental health resources and community support groups where patients can connect with other women with similar experiences.
