Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) (cont.)

Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery to perform wedge resection of the ovaries was formerly carried out as a measure to induce ovulation and treat infertility in women with PCOS. This is rarely performed today because of the effectiveness of Clomid and other methods to treat infertility as well as the fact that adhesions (scar tissue) may remain after ovarian wedge resection. A laparoscopic procedure known as ovarian drilling of the ovaries, in which portions of the ovary are destroyed, has also been used to reduce androgen levels and treat PCOS in some women.
