Does laparoscopic oophorectomy mean a hospital stay?

In brief: No

Most laparoscopic oophorectomies can be done on an outpatient basis, meaning you have the surgery in a surgicenter or hospital but you go home the same day.
If complications occurred or if a laparotomy (open procedure) was necessary, an overnight stay might be recommended.

In brief: Not necessarily.

This is often done as an outpatient procedure, but check with your doctor. Each patient is a little different.
