Screening laparoscopy during tubal surgery
Although we are able to repair most tubal ligations, we offer patients who desire more certainty about their surgery an optional screening laparoscopy. This procedure allows a quick evaluation of your fallopian tubes using a camera inserted through a small incision made inside your belly button. If tubal repair is not possible then you would receive a $5000 refund of your surgical fee.
The cost for an optional screening laparoscopy is $1500 in addition to the surgery fee.

When you are ready to schedule your reversal surgery, payment of a $100 scheduling fee is required to be added to the surgery schedule.
The $100 scheduling fee covers the cost involved in planning and scheduling your surgery: 20 minute medical history phone interview, registration paper work, surgical date selection, ordering pre-operative lab work, and providing advice for travel and hotel reservations.
The scheduling fee can be conveniently paid through PayPal.
