Cost of Tubal Reversal Surgery
Affordable tubal ligation reversal surgery
With conventional methods, tubal ligation reversal may take several hours and patients are hospitalized for 2-3 days. Longer surgery and anesthesia times increase recovery time and costs. At Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center, the reversal procedure takes approximately one hour and overnight hospital stay is not needed. The advanced tubal reversal surgery techniques used by Dr. Berger and Dr. Monteith result in a low cost outpatient procedure that has produced the most tubal reversal babies born worldwide.
