This is a surgery where your doctor uses a thin, lighted camera and small surgical tool placed through a small (1/2 inch) incision usually in the belly button, to remove both of your ovaries and fallopian tubes. To help with the surgery, two to three other small incisions will be made on the lower abdomen.
