Ovarian cysts. Most ovarian cysts can be removed laparoscopically which is an outpatient procedure. It is nowadays unusual to have to be inpatient for this. This obviously depends on the expertise of your surgeon. Advanced gynecological laparoscopists rarely have to perform a laparotomy (open surgery) for ovarian cyst removal.

Outpatient usually. Most of the time it is done with laparoscopy or robotic laparoscopy and takes about 1 hour. You go home the same day and recover pretty quickly. If you have had multiple surgeries before sometimes an open incision and staying overnight in the hospital is needed.
