Ovary removal surgery elevates risk for dementia

ly is not that long -- women receive it for five or six years, till the menopausal symptoms diminish," says Dr. Rocca. "The current treatment is often not sufficient to get women who have ovariectomy through the age of natural menopause, especially if the surgery is performed at a young age. Thus, these women don't get quite enough estrogen."

Dr. Rocca emphasizes that his study's findings must be discussed by those contemplating ovary removal with their physicians in the context of the woman's overall situation -- such as medical history, genetic makeup and other factors.

"Like any medical or surgical decision, there is a trade between risk and benefit," says Dr. Rocca. "Our findings are important for situations where the removal of the ovaries is elective -- that is, conducted to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer."
