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 offers an alternative to IVF

Essure reversal allows you the chance to become pregnant naturally. After reversing Essure you will have a chance to become pregnant every month and you can become pregnant more than once. Essure reversal provides women with an alternative to in-vitro fertilization.

  • Essure reversal surgery fee $7,900
  • Average Essure reversal pregnancy rate 35% to 40%

The fee of $7,900 is our cash discounted fee. To obtain the cash discounted fee you must pay the entire surgery fee by bank wire, cashiers check, cash, or credit card.

*** If you are financing any portion of the Essure reversal/Essure removal, the cost for Essure reversal/Essure removal surgery will increase to $8,500. ***

In comparison, the cost of a single cycle of in-vitro fertilization (IVF) is $14,000 and the average IVF success rate is 36% for each cycle attempted.

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, cash, 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.

Screening laparoscopy
Unique to our practice

We are the only center offering patients an insurance policy during tubal ligation reversal surgery: Screening laparoscopy.

We never require a screening laparoscopy. This procedure is always optional. You should think of the optional screening laparoscopy as you would an insurance policy.

If Essure reversal or Essure removal is not possible then patients who choose the screening laparoscopy option will receive a refund of their surgical fee!

Screening laparoscopy is not typically required for Essure reversal or Essure removal. If you have a history of c-sections or uterine fibroid surgery you should consider adding the optional screening laparoscopy to your surgery.

C-sections and fibroid removal surgery can cause significant uterine scar tissue and can increase the difficulty of Essure reversal and Essure removal.

More information: How do c-sections cause severe scar tissue?

Patients who choose to have a screening laparoscopy at the time of tubal reversal surgery will pay (Essure reversal/removal fee + screening laparoscopy fee). If during the laparoscopy, Dr. Monteith does not think Essure reversal or Essure removal can be completed then patients who have the screening laparoscopy will be refunded Essure reversal/removal portion of the surgery fee.

For more information: Advantages of screening laparoscopy during tubal reversal.

Scheduling fee

When you are ready to schedule your reversal surgery, payment of a $150 scheduling fee is required to be added to the surgery schedule.

The 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
  • providing advice for travel and hotel reservations

The scheduling fee can conveniently be 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.

Surgery cancellation and rescheduling

Cancellation of surgery within 15 to 21 days of the surgery date will result in a 50% cancellation fee. Cancellation of a procedure within 14 days of the date of surgery, regardless of the reason, will result in forfeiture of 100% of the surgical fee.

Patients may reschedule their surgery date one time, outside of 3 weeks of the initial surgery date, at no charge. Additional date changes will require a rescheduling fee of $1500.

Rescheduling surgery within 15 to 21 days of the date of surgery, regardless of the reason, will result in forfeiture of 50% of the surgical fee. Rescheduling surgery within 14 days of the date of surgery, regardless of the reason, will result in forfeiture of 100% of the surgical fee.
