Does Tubal Reversal Work?

many-people-will-ask-does-tubal-reversal-surgery-workDoes tubal reversal work? The answer is, without a doubt, “Yes! Tubal reversal surgery does work.”

We would like to add if you see an experience tubal reversal surgeon not only does tubal reversal work, but you can also have an affordable option to the more expensive treatment of in-vitro fertilization … or IVF.

For many patients tubal ligation reversal surgery can be more affordable, more successful, and can provide more chances at becoming pregnant than can in-vitro fertilization (IVF).

The leading group of infertility specialists, The American Society For Reproductive Medicine, has consistently supported tubal surgery as a treatment for tubal ligation and tubal blockage.

Dr. Monteith of A Personal Choice in Raleigh NC exclusively performs tubal surgery to reverse tubal ligation and to restore normal function of fallopian tubes closed due to scar tissue.

He can expertly repair most tubal ligations. He even offers vasectomy reversal surgery for men.

Extensive Experience With Tubal Reversal Surgery

The statistics used in this article are from the 12 year data base (Tubal Reversal Pregnancy Report) of tubal ligation reversal surgeries performed at A Personal Choice. The data base is comprised of over 9,000 patients who have undergone tubal surgery at A Personal Choice Reversal center.

Tubal Reversal Has a High Pregnancy Rate

We ask our patients to self-report all pregnancies to us through our Early Pregnancy Monitoring and Report Protocol. Using this information we are able to determine the success of our tubal reversal surgeries.

Tubal reversal compared to IVF success

We have previously published extensive information about pregnancy rates after IVF as well as IVF risks and IVF benefits. Moreover, we have also presented statistics on the average chance of of IVF success as well as the chance of IVF success in older women using either nondonor and donor eggs.

In general, the average chance of success per cycle of IVF is one in three. As a woman ages, the chance of success with IVF decreases every year. When eggs are donated from a woman under 30 years of age, the average chance of success for an IVF pregnancy can be as high as 50%.

IVF Pregnancy Success Rates

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) annually monitors the success of IVF across the United States and is considered to be an unbiased source for statistics regarding assisted reproductive technology (ART). The CDC publishes a report yearly on the success of IVF in the United States.3

A single cycle of IVF in the United States ranges from $12,000 to $14,000.

My IVF doctor recommended reversal with Dr Monteith


We went through so much to have her. Before my tubal reversal in December of 2021, we attempted IVF. IVF did not work for us. It resulted in a prolonged miscarriage and failed transfer.

We consulted with a new IVF clinic and to our surprise, the doctor asked why we hadn’t considered a tubal reversal. We had been told by two prior fertility clinics that reversals was not an option for us, but this new doctor thought I would be good a candidate for reversal and in a moment that forever changed my life, he recommended Dr. Monteith.
