Some women will ask us if we have a tubal reversal clinic in their area because they think A Personal Choice is just too far away.
Some of our patients don’t care how far away we are and they are determined to travel to our center to have tubal surgery with the surgeons who have the most experience in tubal repair surgery.
One such couple was Carmen and Ariel. The traveled all the way from Guam to have tubal reversal surgery in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
Tubal Ligation: Can’t Predict The Future
Carmen is 28 years old and she is a native Guamanian. She works in an office as an administrative assistant. She has three children. Carmen had a ligation and resection type of tubal ligation during a c-section for the birth of her youngest child. Unfortunately her husband died after the birth and Carmen was left a single parent of three.
She soon meet her current husband, Ariel. They have been married for two years and Ariel does not have any children. After being married they began to consider ways they could have a child together.
IVF Or Tubal Reversal: An Easy Decision
They were told a single cycle of IVF was going to cost them over $25,000!
They began researching tubal reversal surgery and they immediately found the website of Dr. Monteith. Since they lived in the middle of the Pacific Ocean they could have easily gone to Thailand, India, or even the West Coast of the United States for IVF or cheap tubal reversal surgery; however for them it was an easy decision.
They decided they were coming to Chapel Hill, North Carolina to have tubal reversal at the A Personal Choice.
Traveling For Tubal Reversal
They took three planes to get here: Guam to Honolulu (8 hours), Honolulu to Chicago (8 hours), and Chicago to Chapel Hill (2 hours). The checked in to the hotel and had their preoperative visit with Dr. Monteith.
Her reversal surgery was a success. Both of Carmen’s tubes were repaired. Her tubal lengths were and 6.0 and 7.5cm. The estimated blood loss was 20 milliliters (4 tsps) and the total operating time was 50 minutes.
She was discharged back to the hotel doing well and with minimal pain. Carmen will be staying in South Carolina for a week after surgery with her sister and then she and Ariel will hop on a plane and make the long trip back to Guam.
Go For The Best Tubal Reversal… Don’t Go For The Cheapest
I am often amazed when some patients ask me, “Is there any place closer to me?” or even “Is there any place cheaper than you?“.
You only have so much fallopian tube to operate on and you only want to do the surgery once.
With each tubal surgery the tube can be injured as a result of the surgery or scar tissue could form as a result of the surgery.
Why not consider coming to the only doctors who specialize exclusively in tubal reversal and tubal surgery? Why not come to the doctors who have the combined experience of having performed over 10,000 tubal surgeries? Why not take the time to do it right?
Come to A Personal Choice for the most experienced tubal reversal doctors who offer the best tubal reversal surgery.
