During the surgery: In open surgery, an incision is made across the abdomen to access the ovaries. Ovaries will be separated from the blood vessles and the tissues around it. Ovaries will be surgically removed and incision will be sutured.In laparoscopic surgery, a thin tube along with a small camera and specialized equipment is passed through one or more incisions in the abdomen. Then, each ovary will be removed from its surrounding tissue and the blood supply to put in a pouch. The pouch will be taken out of your abdomen through one of the minor incisions.
