How to Get Tubes Untied: Reverse Tubal Ligation

What is Reverse Tubal Ligation?

Reverse tubal ligation – or more properly, tubal ligation reversal – is a procedure to get tubes untied for women who desire a pregnancy after tubal ligation. There are actually several procedures that can be used to untie tubes after the tubes have been tied.

Techniques of Reverse Tubal Ligation

There are 3 main techniques that can be used for reversing tubal ligation.

  1. Tubal anastomosis
  2. Tubal implantation
  3. Salpingostomy (Fimbriectomy Reversal)

Tubal Anastomosis

Tubal Anastomosis
Microsurgical tubal anastomosis is the most common technique to untie tubes.
Tubal anastomosis is the best procedure to get tubes untied.

The most common method for untying tubes is the reverse tubal ligation procedure of tubal anastomosis. Anastomosis refers to joining two body parts, and tubotubal anastomosis is joining two tubal segments together. Most techniques that tie tubes result in two separate tubal segments, so the simplest way to get tubes untied in these cases is with the anastomosis procedure.

For more details about untying tubes via tubal anastomosis, see the topic on Tubal Reversal by Tubal Anastomosis on the Tubal Reversal Blog and the description of Microsurgical Tubal Anastomosis on the A Personal Choice website.

What is the Cost of Untying Tubes?

Reverse tubal ligation is usually described as extremely expensive, ranging from $10,000 to $30,000. The tubal anastomosis procedure to untie tubes costs $5900 at A Personal Choice Center. Because it is done as outpatient surgery and performed four times a day, the cost savings is passed on to the women who want kids after tubal ligation.
