For those of you who may not be aware the best tubal surgery specialty center recently relocated from Chapel Hill to Raleigh, North Carolina. The last patient to have surgery in our previous location was highlighted in a special article: Last Reversal Surgery Ever At A Personal Choice!
Although we have moved locations, we continue to provide the same superior surgical experience we always have provided…perhaps even better.
The first tubal ligation reversal surgery was performed on Kimberly and Michael. They traveled from the Bronx, New York to have tubal reversal surgery at our new center and they were the first official patients to walk through our new doors.
Can tubal ligation be reversed?
Kimberly is 33 years of age and she has two children. She had tubal coagulation (burned tubes) type of tubal ligation and she wants to have children with her new partner Michael. Kimberly felt tubal reversal surgery would provide her with the best chance and she and Michael traveled to us to have their reversal surgery.
Making their trip special
Michael and Kimberly took a brief detour before having reversal surgery. I am uncertain if they followed our recommendations on our Fun Things To Do page or if they came up with this idea on their own. They flew into Charlotte, North Carolina on Sunday before having surgery to go to a NFL football game!
They were able to secure tickets to the sold out Panthers vs San Francisco 49er’s playoff game which was held in Bank of America Stadium. Michael enjoyed the game very much (Dr. Monteith less so) because Michael’s 49ers won and were able to advance in the playoffs and continue on their road to the Super Bowl. Michael let his true fan support show by proudly wearing his 49ers shirt to the pre-operative consultation!
Reversing burned tubes
Although Kimberly had burned tubes as her method of ligation, we were able to successfully reverse her tubes and provide her with a chance to become naturally pregnant again.
Most people mistakenly believe burned tubes cannot be reversed but our experience demonstrates most burned tube ligations can be reversed.

History is made with tubal reversal at new center
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the tradition of our practice, we have both a United States and an international map and have offered all patients the chance to insert pins in the map to indicate their cities of origin. Our previous map has become so full with pins that patients who are from the east coast have no space to put new pins.
We decided when we moved locations we would continue our tradition of asking patients to put a pin in the map but this time we have an even larger map!
Kimberly and Michael had the honor of placing the first pin in our new map. We choose red as the color of Kimberly’s pin and she will be the only patient who will have the honor of using a red pin.
If you are a patient at our center then perhaps you will be able to identify the single red pin.
This pin will be forever referred to as ‘Kimberly’s pin’!
