How to Choose the Best Tubal Reversal Doctor

Tubal Reversal Surgery – How to choose the best doctor

When women begin researching tubal reversal surgery, there are several questions that are frequently asked. These questions are typically based on the differences that become apparent when they compare various facilities and doctors.

“How do I choose a doctor?” Considering the number of choices, it is one of the most important questions to consider before a woman moves forward with planning her tubal reversal procedure. Training, experience, availability, and patient support can vary greatly between doctors and facilities.

best-in-the-field-of-tubal-reversal-surgeryMost women who research the option of tubal reversal surgery after a tubal ligation are interested in how many reversal procedures the doctor has performed. Many reproductive surgeons have performed a tubal reversal procedure, but few perform the procedure routinely and even fewer limit their practice to this specialty. In the case of tubal reversal surgery, experience is an important factor in predicting the outcome of the procedure.

A Personal Choice is the only medical facility specifically for tubal ligation reversal surgery.
Dr. Charles Monteith performs 3 reversals a day and has performed more than 7000 reversal procedures in his career.

Another question women frequently ask is whether the doctor uses the dye technique or a stent to ensure the tubes are open following surgery. The use of the dye technique is not the most accurate indicator regarding whether the tubes are open following tubal repair to allow conception. The stent technique is the better approach in our opinion to avoid any doubt. The stent is sterile and does not pass through the cervix. The stent not damage the tubes, and it ensures that they are open so a dye test is not necessary. With the stent technique used by Dr. Monteith, there is no question regarding tubal patency following surgery, which puts the woman in a much better position for achieving pregnancy following surgery.

A common question during the process of researching tubal reversal facilities is whether the doctor uses permanent or absorbable suture to repair the fallopian tubes and whether he or she reconnects each of the tubal layers. While some doctors may suture all of the tubal layers, Dr. Monteith uses permanent suture and sews the muscular and outer serosal layers together. He does not place suture in the inner endothelial layer as this may increase the risk of scar formation within the tubal lumen. In Dr. Monteith’s opinion, this is the best approach. Comparing doctors’ data regarding pregnancy outcomes is the best way to assess their techniques since high pregnancy rates are a clear indication that the techniques are successful.

Ultimately, the most frequently asked – and most important – question regarding tubal reversal surgery is, “What are the doctor’s success rates”. Since pregnancy and its outcome are the primary concerns of most women who choose the reversal procedure, the answer to this question should be based on accurate statistical data. On the Internet, claims about tubal reversal pregnancy rates are often made without supporting information or documentation – such as a description of the patient population, study method, and follow-up interval. At A Personal Choice, Dr. Monteith and his staff do everything possible to obtain and report this information on an ongoing basis. This allows them to remain informed about the number of pregnancies achieved and what their outcomes were after tubal reversal and to answer questions and guide patients who are waiting to become pregnant.

The decision to undergo surgery to restore fertility after a previous sterilization is a serious one for any couple. Where to go for surgery and with whom care will be entrusted is an important part of that decision. Potential patients should expect that they have been given detailed, accurate information regarding costs and recovery times, as well as careful analysis and reporting of accurate statistics regarding pregnancy and birth rates. This is referred to as “evidence based medicine” and is consistent with the mission of A Personal Choice. It is one of the many reasons why A Personal Choice has become known as the best place to have tubal reversal surgery.

    Hi, I live in Ohio, and my husband and I have been talking for a long time about having this done… But we want to know that it’s definitely possible getting pregnant again after having my tubal done 7 years ago… So far you’re the best we’ve found online and would love to complete our family finally.

    1. Dr. Monteith says:

      You can become pregnant after tubal reversal; however, there are no definite or guaranteed results with either tubal reversal, IVF, or even adoption. Tubal reversal often provides you the best chances because each month you have a chance of pregnancy.

      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.
