A 46-year-old member asked:

Can we do vaginal surgery for ovarian cyst?

Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Yes, but limited: Doing a ovarian cyst operation through the vagina involves a colpotomy(incision in the back of the vagina) and provides a portal to see the ovaries with limited visibility for ovarian cyst drainage.
Dr. Jane Van Dis
Obstetrics and Gynecology 18 years experience
Laparoscopy: Most doctors would recommend a laparoscopic, minimally invasive surgery, for an ovarian cyst. No need to make a cut in the vagina.
