Tubal Reversal Pregnancy Report 2011


Study Methodology: Prospective Cohort Study

This report is based on a prospective study of 9,935 women who had tubal reversal surgery from January 2001 through December 2011. Our practice is an outpatient facility exclusively for tubal ligation reversal. Each surgical procedure and each pregnancy was defined as a case.

Patients were asked to notify our office staff when a pregnancy occurred by completing an online pregnancy report. Staff nurses contacted all women reporting pregnancies at regular intervals to determine the outcome of each known pregnancy. The nurses entered the information into an electronic database for subsequent analysis.

Tubal Reversal Procedures

The tubal reversal procedures were performed using outpatient mini-laparotomy surgical and anesthetic techniques that minimize tissue injury, blood loss, anesthesia time, postoperative pain, and recovery time.

The tubal reversal operations included the following types of surgery, depending on the requirements of each patient.

  • Tubal Anastomosis
  • Salpingostomy
  • Tubouterine Implantation

Pregnancy Numbers and Percentages

The present report is based on a total of 9,935 cases that included surgeries from 2001 through 2011 and their subsequent pregnancies reported to our practice. The operative techniques of microsurgical tubal anastomosis, tubouterine implantation, and salpingostomy were used as appropriate to each patient’s situation. In some cases, more than one technique was needed in order to repair both fallopian tubes. Including all women’s ages, methods of tubal ligation, and operative techniques used for tubal reversal, the overall percentage of pregnancy (pregnancy ratio) was 67% based on 6,656 pregnancies discovered during the study interval.

Subsequent pages in this report show the pregnancy numbers and percentages by age, types of tubal ligation, and tubal lengths after tubal reparative surgery.
These statistics will help women understand their chances of conceiving after tubal ligation reversal based on their age and method of tubal ligation. These statistics apply only to women who have tubal ligation reversal surgery at our practice and not to other doctors or medical centers.

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!”
