A Personal Choice

Essure reversal surgery at our center takes approximately 90 minutes and no overnight hospital stay is required. We were the first to publish successful reports of Essure pregnancy within the medical literature and we have continued to improve our techniques. Since our first medical reports on Essure reversal we have developed surgical techniques, which allow us to remove the coils intact and allow our patients to recover quicker and with less discomfort.

The chance of pregnancy after Essure reversal is 35% to 40% and most patients will report pregnancy within 12 months.

Essure Reversal vs Essure Removal

Essure sterilization reversal involves both Essure coil removal and re-introducing each fallopian tube into the uterine cavity (tubouterine implantation) and this is our recommend procedure for patients who would like to become pregnant again. Our Essure reversal procedure is recommended for women who would like the chance to become naturally pregnant.

Essure coil removal only involves removing the Essure coils from each fallopian tube and leaving the tubes closed so pregnancy will not ocur. Our Essure removal procedure is recommended for women who are having symptoms from the Essure devices but who do not want to become pregnant.

We have developed a surgical technique which minimizes the risk of Essure coil fracture during removal. Our surgical technique for Essure removal is detailed and involved and is very similar to our technique for Essure reversal. We do not simply pull on the coils to remove them. Instead we remove the Essure micro-inserts intact and with the surrounding scar tissue. The cost for Essure removal only is the same as the cost for Essure reversal.

To better understand our technique for removing Essure and minimizing the risk of fracture visit: More information for physicians

Our Essure surgery fees are
all-inclusive and cover:

  • Preoperative record review and consultation
  • Surgeon’s fee
  • Anesthesia fees
  • Surgical supplies
  • Operating facility fees
  • Post-operative visit and follow-up care

The surgical fee payment can be made by bank-to-bank wire transfer, Visa, MasterCard, Discover card, or sending a cashier’s check or money order by over-night delivery. Payments by credit card will be subject to an additional processing fee.

Scheduling fee

When you are ready to schedule your reversal surgery, payment of a $125 scheduling fee is required to be added to the surgery schedule.

The $125 scheduling fee covers the cost involved in planning and scheduling your surgery: 20 minute medical history phone interview, registration paper work, surgical date selection, ordering pre-operative lab work, and providing advice for travel and hotel reservations.

The scheduling fee can be conveniently paid with a credit card.

If you are having symptoms from your Essure health insurance will only pay for a hysterectomy or complete removal of the fallopian tubes.

    I am very interested in the Essure Reversal Procedure. My husband (34) and I (32) made the biggest mistake of sterilization (him getting a vasectomy and myself getting Essure places in 2011) 4 months after the birth of our 3rd child. We both wish to have reversal surgery in hopes of conceiving 2-3 more children. We just are unsure if it has been too long and we should stop hoping for this dream to come true. Please let me know how to proceed if it is at all possible to help us. We are willing to try anything. We trust Dr. Monteith is the answer we have been praying for! Thank you!

  3. Julie says:

    Hello!! I am currently 33 years old with two children, 14 & 9 years old. After my 9 year old, being only 24 years old, I made the horrible decision of getting the Essure procedure done. I then was I’m a very bad relationship & thought if I could stop myself from having more children I can get out sooner. Ultimately I gained the strength to walk away and now 7 years later I am married to the love of my life. Unfortunately he does not have any children and loves mine like his own but would love to complete our family with just one more child. I have been doing research on IVF & reversal but cost is outrageous. Im a pretty straight forward case with no complications. I just would like to know more info about reversal.
    Where are you located?
    Thank you!!

      We do have a prepayment tubal reversal plan that allows you to save towards your reversal over a 3 year period.

      It is harder to become pregnant with increasing age but not impossible if you are having regular periods. I would advise you not delay your decision for too long.

      The chance of pregnancy after age 40 and tubal reversal is about 35% to 40%. We do have many patients who become pregnant with tubal reversal after age 40. Most of the women who become pregnant after reversal are between the age of 40 and 43.

      For more information: Tubal reversal and age

      The surgery at our center should be safe. Pregnancy should be safe as long as you dont have any severe medical conditions. It is harder to become pregnant with increasing age so I would not delay your decision for too long.
