Charles W. Monteith M.D.
Medical Director

Dr. Monteith’s career in corrective tubal surgery began in 2008. After completing a microsurgery training course at the Cleveland Clinic and a six month training mentorship in tubal ligation reversal surgery under Dr. Gary Berger, Dr. Monteith began to exclusively specialize in fertility surgery.

Since 2008, Dr. Monteith has gained extensive expertise in reversing all type of tubal ligations and in repairing blocked fallopian tubes caused by gynecological diseases.

Dr. Monteith has the distinct privilege of being the first surgeon in the world to report successful pregnancy within the peer reviewed medical literature after reversal of transcervical hysteroscopic tubal sterilization.

Professional Background

Dr. Monteith graduated from college in the top three of his class and with honors from Xavier University of Louisiana. He attended medical school at the prestigious University of California at San Francisco School of Medicine, which was consistently ranked among the top four medical schools in the United States by national surveys. While at the University of California at San Francisco, Dr. Monteith received a prestigious Howard Hughes research fellowship to research molecular genetics.

He completed residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. During his residency, he was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society. Dr. Monteith was best known for being a patient teacher and instructor to other residents and students. He was the recipient of many awards for resident and medical student teaching. After completing residency in 2001, Dr. Monteith accepted a Clinical Assistant Professorship with the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

During his tenure as an Assistant Professor, Dr. Monteith served in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at WakeMed Hospital in Raleigh, N.C. and practiced obstetrics and advanced surgical gynecology. He continued teaching residents and medical students in the practice of Obstetrics and Gynecology, participated in a private obstetrics practice, and delivered babies and helped care for many high-risk pregnancies. He developed extensive experience in laparoscopic surgery and the surgical treatment of advanced gynecologic diseases. Dr. Monteith brings with him the experience of providing over ten years of obstetrical care and this allows him to better counsel tubal surgery patients about pregnancy concerns before his patients have tubal reversal surgery.

Dr. Monteith is a member of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. He is board certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and by virtue of his board certification Dr. Monteith possesses special knowledge, skills and professional capability in the medical and surgical care of women related to pregnancy and disorders of the female reproductive system.

Dr. Monteith left his successful practice in obstetrics and gynecology after seven years. He felt his true calling as a physician was in using his skills to help those who other doctors would not or could not help. He felt his true calling as a surgeon was in using his skills to perform procedures, which make significant differences in his patient’s lives. This is his view of what it truly means to be both a physician and a surgeon.

History of A Personal Choice

Dr. Monteith joined Dr. Berger’s staff at Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center as a tubal ligation reversal specialist in 2008. After five years and over 1200 tubal surgeries, Dr. Monteith was promoted to the Medical Director of the reversal center in 2013.

In 2014, Dr. Monteith relocated the specialty center to its current location in Raleigh, North Carolina. This move provided his tubal surgery patients a newer surgical facility, better hotel accommodations, outstanding access to restaurants and shopping, and closer access to Raleigh-Durham International Airport.

Dr. Monteith used this move as an opportunity for a new beginning and he renamed the practice A Personal Choice because he believes all patients should have the ability to make personal choices about their fertility desires without the undue influences of others.

    Hi I was wondering if this was the cost or is it depending on bodymass

    1. Dr. Monteith says:

      We do not charge patients based on body weight. We perform surgery up to a maximal BMI of 37…BMI is calculated based on your height and weight.

      You can calculate your BMI here: BMI Calculator

      We charge $6400 total plus $125 to schedule and we are located in Raleigh, North Carolina. Insurance will not pay for tubal reversal surgery. You should send us your tubal ligation records for a free review.

      Patients pay in full and out-of-pocket at the time of scheduling. All you have to pay for in addition to the surgical fee is the cost of travel, hotel, and food. Patients stay in Raleigh a total of 2 nights and 3 days. The consultation is the first day, surgery the second day, and postoperative visit is the third day.

      We do have a prepayment tubal reversal plan that allows you to save towards your reversal over a 3 year period.

      Although $6,400 seems expensive…the alternative treatment in-vitro fertilization (IVF) average $12,000 to $14,000 and is about 40% successful!

      The main advantage to tubal reversal is that every month you have a chance and you can become pregnant more than once.

      Call us at (919) 977-5050 8am to 5pm eastern standard time and we would be happy to speak with you about reversal surgery at our center.
