What Our Patients Are Saying

“We had our surgery on 3/18/15 and on 02/02/16 our 7 pound 11 oz baby girl was born! I’m 34 years old and had tubal ligation done via clamps 8 years prior so this surgery really does work! 8 years later I had the reversal and 9 years later we were blessed with our little girl! So many doctors tried to talk us out of it-wanted us to do IVF to get our money-however praise God we went with this because it does WORK! Dr M is amazing and his staff! The area is beautiful where his office is, and if you do this procedure it will be the best money you ever spend!”

– Charlee-Belle M., Surgery

“From the very first phone call, the staff at A Personal Choice has been amazing! They have answered our numerous questions, concerns and have been amazing. They never give you false hope, but give you the complete story. I am so happy that we chose Dr. Monteith and his staff to make our dreams a reality. Can’t wait to start trying to have a baby. I would and have recommended Dr. Monteith to ANYONE wanting a tubal ligation or vasectomy reversal. Thank you all so much for giving us this chance!”

– Angela W., Essure Reversal

“Excellent service overall! Each stage of the process was carefully explained in great detail: how the procedure works, what to expect during the procedure, what to expect after, possible side effects. Dr. Monteith himself is very knowledgeable and experienced and quite personable too. He has a great sense of humor and uses it generously to put patients at ease. I highly recommend him and his staff to anyone considering either a vasectomy or a vasectomy reversal.”

Chris B., Vasectomy Reversal

When the consultation is being done does someone have to be there with me? Or do they just come the day my surgery is being done? How long do I stay in the hospital after the surgery is done?

    Dr. Monteith Reply

    We require you have an adult with you at the consultation and on the day of surgery. If you do not have an adult with you we would cancel your surgery and you would lose your surgical fee.

    We strongly recommend, but do not require, you have an adult with you during your post-operative visit.

    All surgery is done in our out-patient operating room. You would need to spend 2 nights and 3 days in Raleigh.

Is there a bmi limit for the tubal reversal surgery? also, when I checked with my insurance they cover tubal reversals, but if im correct you wont file with them? I would have to pay out of pocket?

    Dr. Monteith Reply

    Most insurances will not pay for tubal reversal.

    Many will mistakenly tell you they will pay for surgery and then deny the payment in the end. A few will pay for the surgery but only if you get your primary care doctor to say it is medically necessary and then the surgery will only be paid for if done in the hospital. We do not file insurance for tubal reversal because they constantly say no.

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

    Tubal clips (or clamps) are great for reversing. The chance of pregnancy success could be as high as 80%. We charge $6400 total plus $125 to schedule and we are located in Raleigh, North Carolina. Insurance will not pay for tubal reversal surgery.

    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 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.

Are children allowed to stay with you in the hotel? Also, How long is the surgery.

    Dr. Monteith Reply

    Children can stay in the hotel with you but we do not allow children in the facility. If your children stay at the hotel then an adult will need to be with them….but an adult also has to be with you in our center for the entire consultation and surgery visits.

I am 41 years old and I had a tubal in May 2001 ( clamps not sure of the specific type) and an endometrial ablation in July 2016, would it be possible to become pregnant? I still have a little cycle after the ablation.

    Dr. Monteith Reply

    Tubal reversal and pregnancy are possible if you are having regular periods of at least 3 days duration after your ablation. All pregnancies after ablation are considered high risk.

    If you are not having periods then we would not consider you a candidate for reversal. There is no medical treatment to make your periods return.

    Ablation will decrease the chance of pregnancy because it permanently damages the lining and muscle of the uterus.

    If your periods are light then you do have some functioning endometriumm but we are not always certain if it is enough to allow for pregnancy. There is no accurate way to be certain.

    We cannot provide an accurate percentage about the success of women getting pregnant after reversal with a prior ablation because there are no large scale studies looking at this. We have had women become pregnant naturally after tubal reversal with a prior ablation but don’t have a large enough group of these patients to provide meaningful statistics.

    Studies looking at women who have become pregnant after ablation show that about 50% will miscarry and about 50% will have live born babies.

    You should read these six articles I wrote about ablation, reversal, and the risks of pregnancy: Tubal Reversal and Ablation

    The ablation will decrease the chances of pregnancy but if you are having regular monthly periods of at least three days duration then pregnancy is certainly possible. If you are not having regular periods then I would advise against a reversal because pregnancy is not likely.

    In general pregnancy is not recommended after ablation because each pregnancy is at higher risk; miscarriage, growth restriction, early delivery, c-section and adherent placenta. The literature suggest that pregnancies are high risk but many will do well. It is possible to become pregnant after tubal reversal and have a healthy pregnancy if you are having regular periods of at least three days duration every month. Please call us at (919)968-4656 if you have any additional questions about tubal reversal.

    All patients with ablations need a consult with me (Dr Monteith) either by phone or in person before they can schedule reversal surgery.

You state that there is a processing fee for using credit cards. What is the fee? I would like to get moving on this, and a credit card may be the only way/
