A Personal Choice
Our Facility

In December 2013, we relocated to a beautiful, state-of-the-art surgical facility in Raleigh, North Carolina.  We now perform surgery in this new facility which is exclusively dedicated to surgery of the fallopian tubes, vasectomy reversal, and minimally invasive vasectomy.

Our patients now have easier access to our reversal center from Raleigh-Durham International Airport, stay in one of two exclusive hotels located in the trendy North Hills Mall of mid-town Raleigh, and are within walking distance of shopping, restaurants, and entertainment.

We want your procedure to be more of a life’s special experience and less of a medical procedure.

      It is harder to become pregnant with increasing age so I would not delay your decision for too long.

      We do have many patients who become pregnant with tubal reversal after age 40. Most of the women who become pregnant after reversal are between the age of 40 and 43.

      For more information: Tubal reversal and age

      The surgery at our center should be safe. Pregnancy should be safe as long as you dont have any severe medical conditions. It is harder to become pregnant with increasing age so I would not delay your decision for too long.

  2. Crystal says:

    I had my tubal ligation done in 2013 and an ablation shortly after, I still have a (light) monthly Menstrual cycle. Would I be a candidate for reversal and pregnancy?

    1. Dr. Monteith says:

      Crystal
      In general it is recommended that you not become pregnant after having an ablation procedure.

      Tubal reversal and pregnancy are possible if you are having regular periods of at least 3 days duration after your ablation. All pregnancies after ablation are considered high risk. Most IVF doctors will recommend using a gestational surrogate. IVF costs average $14,000 and you will have to pay the surrogate even more.

      If you are not having periods then we would not consider you a candidate for reversal. There is no medical treatment to make your periods return.

      Ablation will decrease the chance of pregnancy because it permanently damages the lining and muscle of the uterus.

      If your periods are light then you do have some functioning endometriumm but we are not always certain if it is enough to allow for pregnancy. There is no accurate way to be certain.

      We cannot provide an accurate percentage about the success of women getting pregnant after reversal with a prior ablation because there are no large scale studies looking at this. We have had women become pregnant naturally after tubal reversal with a prior ablation but don’t have a large enough group of these patients to provide meaningful statistics.

      Studies looking at women who have become pregnant after ablation show that about 50% will miscarry and about 50% will have live born babies.

      You should read these six articles I wrote about ablation, reversal, and the risks of pregnancy: Tubal Reversal and Ablation

      The ablation will decrease the chances of pregnancy but if you are having regular monthly periods of at least three days duration then pregnancy is certainly possible. If you are not having regular periods then I would advise against a reversal because pregnancy is not likely.

      In general pregnancy is not recommended after ablation because each pregnancy is at higher risk; miscarriage, growth restriction, early delivery, c-section and adherent placenta. The literature suggest that pregnancies are high risk but many will do well. It is possible to become pregnant after tubal reversal and have a healthy pregnancy if you are having regular periods of at least three days duration every month. Please call us at (919)977-5050 if you have any additional questions about tubal reversal.

      To be considered a candidate by our office you need to be having regular periods (every month) and these periods needs to last for at least three days.

      All patients with ablations need a consult with me (Dr Monteith) either by phone or in person before they can schedule reversal surgery.

    I’ve have the Essure for 4 years and wild like it reversed. What should I prepare for?

    1. Dr. Monteith says:

      Markena
      We specialize in Essure reversal and Essure removal surgery. We can reverse Essure and give you the chance of pregnancy….or we can remove Essure and leave your tubes closed. The chance of pregnancy after Essure reversal is about 40%.

      More information: Essure reversal testimonials

      The cost is the same $7,500. We are located in Raleigh, North Carolina.

      No other clinic or doctor has the experience we do. The chance of pregnancy after Essure reversal is about 40%. If you are having symptoms that started soon after Essure most patients report improvement after removal of the devices. We do have a surgery prepayment plan.

      More information: Successful Essure reversal with Dr Monteith

      We charge a total of $7,500 for Essure reversal/removal plus $125 to schedule surgery. If you use our prepayment plan then you can contribute any amount as you are able but you must have the surgery paid for by three years. We do work with two financing companies and we do have a prepayment plan.
