Bilateral ovarian wedge resection, a surgical treatment of polycystic ovarian syndrome, has appropriately decreased in popularity over the last decades. This decline is due to the availability of effective medical therapies and the potential for severe adhesion formation even when microsurgical techniques are used. However, with the wide availability of laparoscopy and surgeons with advanced laparoscopic skills, laparoscopic techniques (ovarian drilling) for treating polycystic ovarian syndrome have been developed.
