7. Obtain the pre-operative lab testing

We have greatly simplified the required testing for tubal reversal. We only require a complete blood count. We can order this lab test for you during your scheduling interview or your local doctor can order this test for you. This testing must be done within 90 days of surgery and the test results need to be faxed to our office.

If you have a complex medical history additional lab testing may be required and this will be discussed during your scheduling interview.

8. Make hotel and travel arrangements

Our office is in Raleigh, North Carolina, is conveniently located, and easily accessible by most airlines and Amtrak train. We are a short drive by car from all major cities on the East Coast and central US.

All patients who come for surgery stay at either the Hyatt House Raleigh North Hills or the AC Hotel Raleigh North Hills.

Each hotel is located in the trendy North Hills Mall in mid-town Raleigh and both are close to our specialty center. The hotels provide complementary private car service to our center and only for our patients. Each hotel is within walking distance to restaurants, shopping, and entertainment.

These hotels offer patients of Dr. Monteith special room rates. In order to receive this special pricing, we recommend you make your hotel reservations with the hotel reservation email link which will be emailed to you after you schedule your surgery date.

9. Your operation

We provide a unique surgical experience with personalized attention and one-on-one care. We make every effort to make your surgery less of a process and more of a life’s experience.

Our team uses surgical techniques, which maximize your chance of having a successful surgery with the results you deserve. Our one-hour reversal operation results in more comfort, faster recovery, and avoids the need for unnecessary hospitalization.

    Hello. I am looking to have this done but feel like I may be pushing the BMI (36.6) and need to lose weight before surgery. Can you tell me the BMI requirements and if I can start a payment plan before I hit the BMI or if I need to be below it before I can?

    1. Dr. Monteith says:

      Holly
      It will be critical that when you arrive for surgery that your BMI be below 37. Some people try to cut it close, come in over the BMI, and if that happens your surgery would be canceled.

      We require your BMI to be less than 37 to have surgery at our center.

      You can check your BMI with our BMI calculator here: BMI Calculator

      You should send us your tubal ligation records for a free review.

      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.

      We charge $6,400 total for surgery plus $125 to schedule.

      Please be aware starting April 1st 2019 the cost for tubal reversal surgery will increase to $6,900. The scheduling fee will increase from $125 to $150.

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

      Although $6,400 seems expensive…the alternative treatment in-vitro fertilization (IVF) average $12,000 to $14,000 and is about 40% successful!

      The main advantage to tubal reversal is that every month you have a chance and you can become pregnant more than once. On average, about 2 out of every 3 women become pregnant with tubal reversal surgery.
