  • Ovarian cancer is a type of cancer that
    begins in the ovaries. Women have two ovaries,
    one on each side of the uterus. The ovaries -
    each about the size of an almond - produce eggs
    (ova) as well as the hormones estrogen,
    progesterone. Ovarian cancer often goes
    undetected until it has spread within the pelvis
    and abdomen. At this late stage, ovarian cancer
    is difficult to treat and is often fatal.

Exploratory Surgery  This surgery is performed
for confirming the diagnosis of ovarian
cancer. Ultrasound  High-frequency sound waves
are produced in order to get precise images of
the structures inside the body.
Positron Emission Tomographic Scan (PET)  This
test helps in defining those areas that altered
blood supply and also helps in identifying
cancer. Upper G.I. and Lower G.I. Scopy  It
helps in ruling out the primary cancer present in
G.I. tract. CT scan This helps in generating two
dimensional images of the body that may show
whether the cancer has spread. Mammography
 Metastatic tumors can be ruled out with this
test. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)  Magnetic
energy is used for generating highly detailed
images of the anatomy such as tumors.

possible Frozen Section Tissue Analysis  The
rapid analysis of the tissue is done under a
microscope. The nature of the tumor is determined

Advanced Minimally Invasive Surgery for Ovarian
Cancer in India
Indian Hospitals gives women with ovarian cancer
access to the latest in cancer treatment. For
example, Indian surgeons use fertility-sparing
surgery, minimally and robotic surgery in select
cases, when app minimally invasive surgery also
called laparoscopic surgery for several
conditions. In minimally invasive procedures,
your doctor makes one or more incisions, each
about a half-inch long, to insert a tube. The
number of incisions depends on the type of
surgery. The tube or tubes let the doctor slip in
tiny video cameras and specially designed
surgical instruments to perform the procedure.
When you have minimally invasive surgery, you're
likely to lose less blood and have less
postoperative pain, fewer and smaller scars, and
a faster recovery than you would after open
surgery. Depending on your condition, you may
need only a short hospital stay. For some
conditions, your doctor may recommend robotic
surgery.
