Our Practice


Welcome to A Personal Choice! Formerly known as Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center, we have been performing tubal ligation reversal and corrective surgery for blocked fallopian tubes since our practice was created in 1997.

Our practice, under the leadership of Dr. Gary Berger, was responsible for pioneering innovative techniques in microsurgical tubal reversal surgery. These advancements have allowed tubal reversal to be affordable, to be performed in an outpatient setting, and not require overnight hospitalization. Since 1997 we have performed more than 12,000 tubal surgeries and we are responsible for more successful tubal ligation reversal surgeries and tubal reversal babies than any other practice in the world. Under the leadership of Dr. Monteith our practice continues to provide exclusive specialization in tubal surgery in a surgical center devoted exclusively to infertility surgery.

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?

Best Place for Tubal Reversal Surgery

We were the first in the world to publish case reports within peer reviewed medical literature on successful pregnancy after Essure reversal and Adiana reversal. Since these initial reports, we have developed extensive expertise in both Essure reversal and Essure removal. Our Essure reversal techniques provide women the chance to become pregnant again after Essure sterilization. Our Essure removal techniques are performed in an outpatient setting and without the need for a hysterectomy.

We set the standard in providing tubal reversal surgery because of our tubal reversal pregnancy statistics, exclusive specialization in corrective tubal surgery, continually updated pregnancy testimonials, and quality of patient care.

When others said it could not be done… we proved it could.

Have Questions? We’re Happy To Help!

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.

Pregnancy Statistics

We don’t provide vague, estimated numbers on the chance of success and we don’t make up numbers. We provide our patients with complete and accurate statistics on the chance of pregnancy after tubal reversal based on our own results collected from surgeries performed on over 12,000 women over more than a decade.

We don’t just tell you reversal works…we took the effort to prove it with our own statistics.

Specialization in Tubal Surgery

We don’t perform in-vitro fertilization (IVF). IVF is an acceptable treatment for infertility but IVF does not treat guilt, regret, or abnormal symptoms some women may feel after tubal sterilization. IVF does not fully restore the satisfaction some women feel when restoring their ability to become naturally pregnant with their partner. IVF does not allow women the ability to become pregnant more than once and over time. We don’t offer any ‘money back guarantees’ or ‘shared risk’ programs you are promised with some infertility treatments.

We don’t perform cosmetic surgery, Botox injections, liposuction, or other procedures that could distract us from our specialization and the care we provide our patients. Although these other treatments have their place, we have chosen to help women and couples through exclusive specialization in corrective tubal surgery and sterilization reversal. We have chosen to exclusively specialize in procedures we feel make a substantial difference in the lives of our patients, their partners, and their families.

No treatment result can be guaranteed but through our specialization we can offer our expertise in restoring your ability to become naturally pregnant and the hope for a better tomorrow.

Pregnancy Testimonials

We don’t show several testimonials from many years ago. We care about each one of our patients and the success of their surgery. As a result, we keep our pregnancy testimonials as fresh and updated as we can. Our tubal reversal babies are the fruits of our patient’s success cultivated by our unique specialization. We love each and every one of our babies and we want to show them off. We encourage all of our patients to report their pregnancies and births and we take the time to respond and to display these comments and photos on our website.

Keeping our baby testimonials and patient messages current takes time and effort…but we think it is well worth it.

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.
