A bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, or the surgical removal of both ovaries and fallopian tubes, may be a viable treatment option for an ovarian cancer patient. Women from Boca Raton or surrounding areas of Florida who are considering this procedure and other treatment options are invited to visit Moffitt Cancer Center in nearby Tampa. Every year, thousands of patients entrust their cancer treatment to Moffitt’s fellowship-trained surgeons, who perform a high volume of virtually every type of complex cancer surgery available. This superior level of surgical experience, combined with Moffitt’s multispecialty approach to cancer and individualized treatment, provides our patients with an unparalleled level of care and enhanced quality of life. In fact, we consistently achieve patient satisfaction rates that exceed 95 percent.
While bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy surgery is widely performed to address ovarian cancer, it is also sometimes sought as a preventive measure for women who have been identified as having an increased likelihood of developing ovarian cancer in the future. Regardless of the reason for the operation, Moffitt’s gynecological cancer surgeons are committed to providing each patient with ample information regarding the procedure, and can perform minimally invasive surgical techniques when appropriate, which can further streamline the recovery process.
When performed as treatment for ovarian cancer, this procedure may be accompanied by other therapies, such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy, along with integrative medicine such as massage, nutritional counseling and yoga. Furthermore, each patient’s individualized treatment plan is collaboratively supported by a team of experts from multiple specialties, including:
- Radiation oncologists
- Social workers
- And other medical and supportive care professionals
