Tubal Reversal Pregnancy Study Report 2011

TUBAL REVERSAL PREGNANCY STUDY:
A DECADE OF OBSERVATION

Study Patient Population

This report is based on 9,935 cases of tubal reversal surgery and subsequent pregnancies from January 1, 2000 through December 31, 2011 at our practice, the only medical facility exclusively for tubal ligation reversal.


Women’s Ages

The women ranged in age from 20 to 51 (Figure 2). The average age was 34. The majority of women in the tubal reversal study were in their 30s.

Tubal Ligation Methods

The type of tubal ligation procedure is one factor related to the outcome after tubal reversal surgery. The most common tubal sterilization method involved tying, cutting, and removing a segment of the fallopian tube (tubal ligation and resection). The second most common method was tubal coagulation (burning the tubes) followed in frequency by tubal occlusion with tubal rings or clips. Other procedures, including fimbriectomy (removing the end of the fallopian tube) and hysteroscopic methods (Essure or Adiana) were the least common. In cases where the patient’s operative report of the tubal ligation was not available and the method could not be determined at the time of the tubal reversal, the sterilization method was classified as unknown.

Method Number Percent
Rings 1416 14%
Clips 850 9%
Ligation/resection 3971 40%
Coagulation 2849 29%
Other/unknown 849 8%
Total 9935 100%

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!”
