Borderline ovarian tumours are usually seen in younger aged women and the issue of conservative surgery is increasingly important in today’s fertility-preserving concept. We present three borderline ovarian tumour cases who underwent conservative surgery in our instutition between 2006-2008 and their long-term follow-ups for their reproductive capacity after treatment. No recurrence after conservative treatment in our cases had been noted. Fertility-preserving surgery may be the treatment of choice with careful follow-up in women with Stage I borderline ovarian tumours, who desire further childbearing. Assisted Reproductive Techniques should be taken into consideration after the initial treatment and second-look surgery may be performed in the course of a caesarean section.
