Tubal Reversal Pregnancy Statistics


Tubal Reversal Pregnancy Statistics
What You Should Know

Many doctors make claims on their websites about the success of tubal reversal surgery. To understand the validity of these claims, it is important to know the basis on which these claims are made. This requires the detailed kind of information presented in the Study Methodology page of this report.

Statistics depend on numbers, in this case the number of women having tubal reversal procedures and the number of pregnancies. These numbers can be subdivided into specific categories, such as age, tubal sterilization method, and pregnancy outcomes.

Most website sites about tubal ligation reversal do not provide any data, making it impossible to substantiate the success claimed by a particular doctor or clinic. A cautious person will question such claims when no supporting information is available.

Evidence Based Medicine

Maintaining ongoing patient follow-up is the only way a doctor can know what the pregnancy and pregnancy outcome statistics are for his or her patients. Data about all women having surgery as well as pregnancies and their outcomes must be recorded in a database to permit statistical analysis. This requires an enormous investment of time and money. It is not something that is typically found in a clinical (non-research) setting.

Our Tubal Reversal Research Report is Unique

No other doctor or medical facility has a follow-up system and database that provides such detailed and accurate statistics about pregnancies after tubal reversal as our practice.

Under Reporting of Pregnancies

Patients are encouraged to inform us when they have a positive pregnancy test. But not all pregnancies are reported. In addition, some patients are lost to follow-up after surgery. This occurs when someone moves or changes email address and telephone numbers but does not inform us of their new contact information. In these cases, we are unable to learn about the long-term results of their tubal reversal procedures. From the women who do remain in contact with us over the long term, it is apparent that more pregnancies continue to occur after surgery as time goes on. The pregnancy statistics presented in this report are minimal estimates of the chance of pregnancy for patients who have surgery at our center.

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!”

Reversing burned tubes (also called tubal cauterization or tubal coagulation) can provide a good chance of success. The chance of pregnancy after reversal of burned tubes can be as high as 60% to 80%.

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 proceed with surgery without records because we can reverse most tubal ligation procedures.

We charge $6400 total plus $125 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.

We do have a prepayment tubal reversal plan that allows you to save towards your reversal over a 3 year period. You can find out more information about our prepayment plan…and answers to many other questions by following the link below to our Frequently Asked Questions page.

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.

Please be aware starting April 1st 2019 the cost for tubal reversal surgery will increase to $6,900. The scheduling fee will increase from $125 to $150.
