In this procedure, the provider surgically removes part or all of one or both ovaries depending on the extent of the malignancy, in a procedure known as an oophorectomy. He also takes biopsies of lymph nodes and takes tissue samples. The provider may or may not remove one or both fallopian tubes and the omentum. The provider uses an abdominal approach to perform this procedure. This service is done for ovarian, tubal or primary peritoneal cancer.
