Ovarian Cancer

The gold standard in the treatment of ovarian cancer is the first surgery to be performed by the gynecologist oncologist who has been trained in this field. This is a comprehensive procedure involving the removal of some parts of the uterus, both ovaries, fallopian tubes, surrounding lymph nodes, abdominal fat tissue, and ovarian cancer.

If the tumor is at an early stage, small and limited in the ovary, laparoscopy or robotic surgery may involve removal of the uterus, ovaries, abdominal fat tissue and lymph nodes.

If ovarian cancer is detected at a very early stage, or in some ovarian cancer types seen at a young age, the other ovaries and uterus are removed; the ability to have children and the production of hormones is maintained in women or young girls who have no children.
