Tubal Reversal Pregnancy Study Report 2011


Tubal Reversal Study Overview

Tubal ligation reversal at our practice is the most successful treatment for women wanting to get pregnant after a tubal ligation. Tubal reversal restores tubal anatomy and function, allowing the opportunity to conceive a pregnancy naturally and more than one time without further treatment.

This report presents describes statistics about pregnancies reported by our patients over the course of a decade. It is the largest and most definitive study ever reported about pregnancies and pregnancy outcomes after tubal reversal surgery.


Wanting to get pregnant after a tubal ligation is common after remarriage, loss of a child, for religious considerations, to alleviate post tubal ligation symptoms, to feel whole again, and other reasons.

Most people are not aware that tubal ligation – usually considered a permanent method of birth control – can be reversed through low cost, one hour outpatient surgery.
Even many health professionals believe mistakenly that in vitro fertilization (IVF) is needed for women who want another baby after a tubal ligation. The results from the Tubal Reversal Pregnancy Study show tubal ligation reversal when performed at our practice is the most successful option for most women with tied tubes who want to become pregnant again.

About The Tubal Reversal Study Author

Although Dr. Gary Berger had been performing tubal reversal since the 1970’s, he began to intensively analyze tubal reversal statistics after he stopped providing in-vitro fertilization services and began to specialize exclusively in tubal surgery in 1997. Dr. Berger began the Tubal Reversal Study in July of 2000. He realized it was critical to collect detailed statistics and the chance of pregnancy success after tubal reversal surgery. He understood it was only with this detailed information that he could provide accurate counseling to women and couples seeking tubal reversal surgery.

The Tubal Reversal Study required over a decade of work and was possible as a result of his guidance, the efforts of his staff, and the active participation of his patients. Dr. Monteith joined the study in 2008 and contributed to the last three years of the study; however, the success of the study is credited to Dr. Berger and represents a lifetime of his work. Without his vision and leadership this study would have never been possible.

Countless number of women and couples can thank Dr. Berger for his crowning achievement finalized just before his retirement.

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!”
