By tubal ligation reversal, we refer to the procedure by which our physicians repair and restore a woman’s fallopian tubes so that she will be able to again become pregnant. The microsurgery procedure and our proprietary techniques enable us to reduce recovery time, make the procedure affordable and – best of all – achieve a high pregnancy rate. The actual tubal ligation reversal surgery takes approximately 90 minutes. Our physicians also can reverse Essure and Adiana tubal occlusions.
The majority of patients will have patent tubes and become pregnant within one year of their tubal ligation reversal surgery. The pregnancy rate varies by type of tubal ligation, length and health of the remaining tubal segments, a woman’s age and other factors. Furthermore, tubal reversal enables most women to conceive naturally, without having to take fertility medications. Our medical team will consult with you to see if you’re a good candidate for tubal reversal surgery or if you should choose In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).
In addition, if our surgeons find uterine fibroids and/or uterine polyps, they will remove them because they can interfere with pregnancy. Not removing these non-cancerous growths can reduce your chances of a successful tubal reversal surgery and future chances of a successful pregnancy. Because either of these cases are gynecologic issues, most health insurance plans will cover the cost of the removal unless the patient has not met her deductible. Patients with no insurance would be expected to pay for the procedure out of pocket.
For our patients coming from out of town, you should expect to spend two days in the Raleigh / Cary area. We will schedule your preoperative consultation on the day prior to your surgery and will request that you stay at a nearby hotel the evening following your surgery so that you will be accessible to our medical staff in the event that postoperative care is required. Recovery time from the surgery is generally short and most patients are able to return to work or other normal activities within a week to 10 days. Out of town patients, click here.
