Salpingo oophorectomy - removal of the fallopian tubes and ovaries

A Bilateral Salpingo Oophorectomy is the removal of the fallopian tubes and the ovaries.

Sometimes only one side needs removing in which case the surgery would be described as a Right or Left Salpingo Oopherectomy. The surgeon inserts a laparoscope (a thin telescope) into the upper abdomen via 2-3 small incisions. Gas is pumped into the abdomen to allow the surgeon to see clearly and the tube(s) and either both or one ovary are removed.
