In our surgical center, we remove the fallopian tubes entirely, and this has highly desirable effects for our patients. Recent clinical studies have yielded a milestone breakthrough in the modern understanding of ovarian cancer. These studies have shown that 75% of ovarian cancer cases and 90% of ovarian cancer related deaths originate not directly from the ovaries, but from the fallopian tubes. Thus, the removal of the fallopian tubes leads to a dramatic reduction in the incidence and mortality of ovarian cancer, even in patients with hereditary predispositions to it.

As a result of these studies of the beneficial effect of removing the fallopian tubes, the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology has recommended the removal of the fallopian tubes as a general standard of care for OB/GYN patients who desire permanent contraception, or who have decided to undergo a gynecological procedure and have completed their childbearing potential.
