Dr. Supriya Puranik is a leading gynaecologist in Pune, with over 2 decades of experience treating women’s health issues. Salpingectomy, also known as tubal ligation or fallopian tube removal, is a key surgery she performs to address various medical conditions related to the reproductive system.

What is Salpingectomy?

Salpingectomy is a surgical procedure that involves removing one or both of the fallopian tubes to treat medical conditions such as pelvic infection, ovarian cancer and endometriosis. It can also be used as an effective form of contraception.

The main function of the fallopian tubes – which connect the ovaries and uterus – is to transport eggs from the ovaries for fertilization and are thus integral for reproduction.

Salpingectomy may be recommended for various medical conditions, including:

Dr. Supriya Puranik evaluates each patient’s overall health condition and medical history before determining which type of Salpingectomy will suit them best. There are three types of salpingectomies:

  • Partial/segmental Salpingectomy – involves removal of only the affected part of the fallopian tube
  • Total Salpingectomy – involves removal of the entire fallopian tube
  • Bilateral Salpingectomy – involves removal of both tubes

During the procedure, Dr. Supriya ensures her patient’s safety and comfort remain her number one priority; her dedicated staff members also assist her in providing a stress-free environment during the entire process.

Benefits and Risks Associated with Salpingectomy

As with any surgery, there are always potential risks associated with this procedure; these include adverse reactions to anaesthesia, fetal loss if performed during pregnancy, blood clots or bleeding, and damage to other organs in the area, like the bladder or uterus.

Before undergoing Salpingectomy, Dr. Supriya discusses these risks in detail with every patient so they understand what might happen during their procedure.

On a positive note, there are many potential benefits associated with this surgery; some of these include pain relief due to reduced inflammation related to PID or endometriosis, improved fertility due to removing abnormal growths blocking passageways;

lower risk of developing certain cancers, including ovarian cancer due to removing whole tube; prevention from ectopic pregnancies if performed before conception etc.

Post-Surgery Care

Following the procedure, Dr. Supriya Puranik provides detailed post-operative care, including regular follow-up calls and checkups to ensure her patient’s recovery.

She also encourages her patients to be aware of any symptoms related to underlying conditions that require medical attention.

Her team also provides adequate emotional support and counselling for women who may have an emotional experience due to surgery.
