In brief: No
I am not sure what surgery you are talking about, but in and of itself surgery will not cause ovarian cancer to spread.

In brief: Not usually
The majority of ovarian cancers are diagnosed after it has already spread widely through the body.
Surgery does not usually make this worse, but helps the treatment by decreasing the bulk of the cancer.
