Important surgery policies

Patients should be aware of several important surgery policies before they start scheduling. Awareness of these surgery policies will allow you to better plan your surgery:
Important considerations before scheduling


Step 1. Complete Surgery Prescheduling Questionnaire

Completing this questionnaire helps the scheduling nurse quickly complete your phone interview and makes the scheduling process more efficient.

You can complete the Reversal Scheduling Questionnaire using this link: Start Tubal Reversal Scheduling Questionnaire

After completing the questionnaire you will be able to automatically email the completed questionnaire directly to the scheduling nurse.


Step 2. Pay scheduling fee

After completing the Surgery Pre-scheduling questionnaire, you will need to pay the $150 non-refundable surgery scheduling fee.

The scheduling fee can be paid by credit card using the link below.

Use this link for credit card payment

Step 3. Scheduling phone call

After completing the Surgery Prescheduling questionnaire and paying your scheduling fee, a scheduling nurse will call you within 24 hours to conduct a health interview and schedule your surgery.

If you prefer not to wait for our scheduling nurse to call then you are welcome to call during East coast business hours to schedule your surgery. Before calling, you should locate a local laboratory (such as LabCorp) and obtain the phone and fax number. You should have this information available to provide the nurse during your scheduling interview. It is important to provide a thorough, detailed health history when you speak to the nurse. Providing inaccurate health history or withholding important health information will result in cancellation or rescheduling of your appointment and forfeiture of surgery fees.

During your scheduling phone call, the scheduling nurse will obtain a comprehensive health history and also conditionally confirm your date of surgery. The phone health interview should take less than 20 minutes to complete.

Screening laparoscopy
If you are scheduling tubal ligation reversal surgery, our scheduling nurse will also discuss the optional screening laparoscopy with you during your interview.

Preoperative lab testing
Tubal ligation reversal and Essure surgery patients are required to have a complete blood count (CBC) test to check for anemia (low iron) performed within 90 days of their surgery date. Depending on your medical history, additional tests may be required.

If your surgery date is within the next 90 days, you should have the required pre-operative lab testing performed within 48 hours. The scheduling nurse will fax an order to any lab of your choosing using the information you provided when you called to schedule your appointment.


Step 4. Return signed confirmation letters

The Scheduling Nurse will email you a Confirmation Letter, Patient Responsibility Statement, and Registration Packet soon after your phone health interview is completed.

Read through the documents you received by email. Sign and date each of the signature pages and return these by scanning and emailing or by fax within 24 hours.


Step 5. Pay surgery fee and complete lab tests

Submit payment of your full surgery fee within 24 hours via MasterCard, VISA, or Discover or through a bank-to-bank wire transfer. You may also send a cashier’s check or money order by overnight mail.

  • Most patients will find bank-to-bank wire the most convenient and most cost effective way to send payment. Call our office for wire instructions.
  • Payments submitted by credit card will be subject to an additional processing fee.

Your surgery is confirmed when…

Your documents have been signed and returned and your full payment has been received by our office can you consider your surgery date confirmed and scheduled.

Do not make hotel or travel reservations until our office has confirmed receipt of all signed documents and full payment for surgery.

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. Please use the buttons below for answers to our frequently asked questions.

Plan your travel

After your surgery is confirmed you can plan your travel and make the required travel reservations.

We are located in Raleigh, North Carolina,which is a thriving city with many amenities to make your stay more enjoyable. Our office is located 9 miles away from Raleigh-Durham International (RDU) airport. We are also convenient to Interstates I-95, I-85, and I-40.
Raleigh is also on a major Amtrak train route.

We want our patients to have a great time while they are with us. We have compiled an extensive list of recommended restaurants, fun activities, and entertainment venues for you to consider during your stay in Raleigh: Restaurants and Entertainment: Fun Things to Do!


Making your hotel reservations

Patients are required to stay at either the Hyatt House Raleigh North Hills or one of the alternative hotels listed on our website. All hotels are only a short distance from our office.

The Hyatt House Raleigh North Hills offers patients of Dr. Monteith special room rates. When you schedule you will be emailed a link to use when making on-line hotel reservations.

More information: Where to stay during reversal surgery with Dr. Monteith?

We recommend you make your hotel reservations using the hotel reservation email link our scheduling nurses will provide you after your scheduling interview. Do not delay making your hotel reservations because these hotels are very popular.


Surgery policies

Your confirmation letters will outline the surgical policies you must agree to when having surgery at our center.

The following policies exist for maximal patient safety and exceptions are not made.

Responsible adult. You must bring an adult over the age of 18 with you to the consultation. This person will also need to accompany you on the day of surgery and will need to remain in the surgery center until you are discharged. Only one person should come with you. For their safety and the comfort of other patients, children are not allowed at appointments.

Required hotel. All patients, including North Carolina residents, are required to spend both the night before surgery and the night of surgery in Raleigh, North Carolina at either the Hyatt House Raleigh North Hills or one of the alternative hotels listed on our website.

Timely arrival. Your consultation time has been reserved specifically for you, so please plan your travel to accommodate this appointment time. You should plan to arrive in Raleigh at least 2 hours before your consultation time. If this is not possible, you should plan to arrive the evening before the consult. If you are driving, please plan your travel so you are in town well ahead of the scheduled consultation time. All departures on the day after surgery should be planned for 12pm or later. No plane, train, or bus reservations should be planned for earlier than 12pm on the day after surgery.

BMI policy. For surgical safety, tubal ligation and Essure surgery patients are required to have a body mass index (BMI) of less than 37 three (3) weeks before the surgery date. Since many patients are surprised to find their height is less than they assumed and their weight more than they believed, we strongly recommend you verify your height and weight with a doctor before you schedule if you are close to the maximal BMI limit. You can calculate your Body Mass Index using our Body Mass Index calculator.

Failure to bring a responsible adult, stay at the required hotels, arriving late for your surgery consultation, arriving late for your surgery, or being over the BMI limit will result in cancellation of your surgery and forfeiture of surgery fees.


One week confirmation phone call

Approximately one (1) week before the date of your surgery, you will receive a confirmation phone call. During this phone call, a Business Office Associate will review our surgical policies, answer any remaining questions you may have, and confirm you have made hotel reservations. They will ask you to provide or confirm your doctor’s contact information so we can immediately send Dr. Monteith’s recommendations and a copy of your operative note to your local physician after surgery.


One week confirmation email

Immediately following the confirmation phone call, you will be emailed information discussed during the confirmation phone call. Attached to this email will be the Informed Consent for Surgery and Risk of Surgery documents. Please read these two documents before arriving for your consult. These documents will be discussed and signed during your consult with Dr. Monteith.

We encourage you to make a follow-up appointment with your local physician within four (4) weeks of surgery to discuss the Early Pregnancy Monitoring protocol.

Dr. Monteith will send a copy of your operative records and recommendations for after surgery management. You will also be provided a copy of these recommendations and you can discuss these recommendations with your doctor during your follow up appointment.

Meet Dr. Monteith

As a surgeon my reputation & integrity are extremely important to me. I’ve been providing new choices & new beginnings since 2008. I’ve had the distinct privilege of being the first surgeon in the world to report successful pregnancy within the peer reviewed medical literature after reversal of transcervical hysteroscopic tubal sterilization. Permanent is not forever at my practice! HAVE QUESTIONS?

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

“The perfect little angel that I’m holding in my arms right now is the best testament to what Dr. Monteith and his staff do for people. We could not be happier with our decision to use Dr. Monteith. His staff are just amazing. Our entire experience was just a dream! Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you!”

Am I eligible if I’m 44 years old

    We should be able to help you with tubal reversal but it is harder to become pregnant with increasing age so I would not delay your decision for too long.

    If you are having periods then each month you have a chance to become pregnant. Each year you have 12 chances. The older you become and the longer you wait…then each year you lose 12 yearly chances and each monthly chance becomes less every year you wait.

    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.

    We charge $6,900 total plus $150 to schedule and we are located in Raleigh, North Carolina.

    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.

    The alternative treatment is in-vitro fertilization (IVF). Most IVF doctors will recommend you use donor eggs after the age of 42. A single cycle of IVF averages $14,000 and average success is 38% for each try. After age 40 IVF success decreases quickly.

    For more information: Tubal reversal and age

    If you would like to get started then the best first step is to send us your tubal ligation records for a free review. Your tubal ligation records can be obtained from the Medical Records Department in the hospital where your tubal ligation was performed. Occasionally your doctors office may have the records. Sometimes patients may not be able to obtain their tubal ligation records. We can still proceed with surgery without records because we can reverse most tubal ligation procedures.

I need to make an appointment to be able to have the baby again to make me pregnant.


    Dr. Monteith Reply

    We should be able to help you. We can reverse most tubal ligation procedures.

    The first step to see if you are a candidate is to send us your tubal ligation reports to us for a free review and we can let you know if you are a candidate for reversal surgery.

    Your reports can be obtained from the medical records department where your tubal ligation surgery was performed.

    We charge $6,900 total plus $150 to schedule and we are located in Raleigh, North Carolina.

    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.

    On average the chance of pregnancy after tubal ligation reversal is about 60% if you are under age 42.

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

    Although $6,900 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.

Erin Reply

If I’m considering the tubal ligation reversal to treat PTLS rather than to get pregnant, should I have my hormone (progesterone?) levels checked first? Would low progesterone suggest damage to my ovaries?

At this time, when is the earliest available appointment? Please at least ballpark. Are we talking a month or more like a year wait?

Thank you

    We are currently scheduling about 4 weeks out…into late February.

    We have many patients who come to us for tubal reversal because of symptoms after tubal ligation.

    We recommend you see your doctor for a full evaluation. Your doctor should evaluate you for other conditions which could cause similar symptoms. If no other cause can be determined then you can consider tubal reversal surgery. Over 80% of patients report improvement.

    You can read more information here: Tubal Ligation Symptoms
