Could you reverse the permanent decision you made years ago?
Can you feel normal again and have the chance to become naturally pregnant?
If you have asked yourself at least one of these questions then you would have had the same questions as did over 8,000 other women who have come to
Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center to have their tubal ligations reversed.
After reading this article you will understand that it is possible to reverse tubal ligation.
Can You Reverse A Tubal Ligation?
A tubal ligation can be reversed. Why may this seem surprising to you? Very likely because you were told by your doctor that it was a permanent decision and it could not be reversed or undone. This is not exactly correct. Tubal ligations can be reversed.
Many doctors will tell patients a tubal ligation is not reversible. Some will even over emphasize the permanence of having your tubes tied.
The reason the permanence and the irreversibility of tubal reversal is so extensively discussed is because most doctors want to help their patients understand tubal ligation should not be a decision that is lightly made. They want their patients to fully understand that tubal ligation should only be done by those who are certain they do not want any additional children.
The truth is that most tubal ligations can be reversed and natural pregnancy is possible.
How are Tubal Ligations Reversed?
At Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal center the tubal ligation reversal specialist will perform a one hour outpatient tubal reversal surgery. In their hands most tubal ligations are reversible and 98% of their patients will have at least one tube which can be repaired. About 3 out of 4 patients will become pregnant after a reverse tubal ligation.
Patients arrive at the reversal center the day before reversal surgery. They meet with the staff, anesthesiologist and the reversal specialists. Patients will have their tubal reversal surgery the very next day and the surgery will last approximately 60 to 90 minutes. Patients will stay in the recovery room for approximately one hour and then will return to a local hotel. They are seen the next day by a reversal staff member and then they return home with their tubal ligations reversed.
Most patients will be pregnant within the year.
How Much Does A Tubal Reversal Cost?
At Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center the all inclusive price for tubal ligation reversal surgery is $5900. This price covers the entire reversal surgery and there are no hidden fees or costs.
The fee for surgery includes the pre-operative evaluation by the reversal specialists, anesthesia evaluation, tubal reversal surgery, the surgeons fee and the surgical center fee, anesthesia costs, pain medications after surgery, and the post-operative evaluations. The fee also includes a year of followup by the tubal reversal nurses to check on your after tubal reversal experience.
