Reversing Tubal Rings: Ring Tubal Ligation Explained

Tubal ligations can also be performed with tubal rings, or bands, designed to cause permanent closure of the fallopian tubes. These bands are placed across each fallopian tube and cause permanent tubal blockage and prevention of pregnancy.

Tubal rings are usually placed on the tubes during a laparoscopic procedure (small camera placed into the belly button) well after a pregnancy has been completed.

Tubal rings, like tubal clips, damage minimal amounts of the fallopian tube. Reversal of tubal rings can provide a patient with an excellent chance at becoming pregnant after reversal surgery.

The tubal ring is a small silastic band placed around a small loop of the fallopian tube. There are several designs of tubal rings: Falope ring, Yoon ring, and Lay loop. Although slightly different they all perform in a similar fashion.

With the tubal ring method of tubal ligation, the ring is placed across a small segment of each fallopian tube. The ring then constricts tightly across the small segment of fallopian tube. As the ring constricts, the small segment of fallopian tube is deprived of its blood supply and this small segment eventually dissolves and is replaced with scar tissue.

After the segment is replaced with scar tissue, the remaining healthy tubal edges separate and heal closed. The ring then serves no purpose after the tubal edges have separated and healed closed.

Removing tubal rings

Many people mistakenly believe tubal rings can be reversed simply by removing the rings and ‘unkinking’ the tube. Unfortunately reversal of tubal rings is not that simple.

The tubal rings must be removed, the closed edges of the tube reopened, and the tubal edges rejoined though microsurgical tubal reversal. Because the rings damage a small amount of fallopian tube, tubal ring reversal can provide excellent chances of becoming pregnant after tubal reversal surgery.

The chance of pregnancy after reversal of tubal rings at our center is approximately 76%.

    Reversing tubal bands (or rings) can provide an excellent chance of success. The chance of pregnancy after reversal of tubal rings can be as high as 80%.

Is there information you can send to me about the way to start the three year an…I am already 44 but I desperately want another child..

    I would recommend you not wait too long to become pregnant…because with increasing age your chances of pregnancy decrease. Each year you wait you lose 12 chances to become pregnant. Each year the chances become less.

    We have two flexible payment options for you if you dont want to pay in full for surgery: (1) start a prepayment plan with us or (2) finance your reversal surgery.

    Prepayment plan. We do have a prepayment plan that allows you to save towards your surgery. You need to start it with at least $500 and you can contribute any amount over the next 3 years. When you have saved the full amount then you can have your surgery. You can have the surgery anytime within 3 years of starting your plan.

    If you dont have your surgery by the end of the third you you are refunded all of your money less $500. Surgery discounts, when available, are offered to prepayment account members only.

    For more information: Tubal Reversal Prepayment Plan

    Financing reversal surgery. We work with two companies who will help you finance surgery. You would apply for financing directly with United Medical Credit. The link to their company and the application for financing is on our website.

    For more information: Financing Reversal Surgery

    We charge $6400 total for tubal ligation reversal and $7500 for Essure reversal plus $125 to schedule and we are located in Raleigh, North Carolina. Insurance will not pay for tubal reversal surgery.

    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.
