Tubal Reversal Surgery Explained
Tubal ligation reversal at our specialty center is affordable and successful outpatient surgery. No overnight hospital stay is required.
The surgery experience patients have at our center is unequaled by any other provider of tubal reversal surgery.
Tubal reversal surgery can be very successful at restoring your natural fertility, allowing you the chance to become pregnant every month, and providing you the ability to become pregnant more than once.
Tubal Reversal Experience Counts!
Our practice is exclusively dedicated to infertility surgery and we have performed tubal surgery on over 12,000 patients since 1997. Our surgical techniques have a proven track record of success and we have pioneered techniques that allow the surgery to performed outside of a hospital setting and with faster recovery.
Types of Tubal Ligations: Can Tubes Be Reversed?
All tubal ligation procedures will cause blockage of the fallopian tube. Our experience has demonstrated the majority of tubal ligations can be reversed and pregnancy is possible.
Even if you have had tubal coagulation (bipolar or monopolar burning), ligation and resection (Parkland, Irving, Pomeroy, or Uchida procedures), tubal rings (Falope or Yoon rings), tubal clips (Filshie or Hulka clips), or hysteroscopic tubal occlusion (Essure or Adiana procedures), we are able to reverse these tubal ligations in over 98% of our patients.
We encourage potential patients to send us copies of their tubal ligation operative reports for a free review. This will allow us to determine with greater certainty if someone is a candidate for tubal reversal surgery.
How Is Tubal Ligation Reversed?
Since most of our patients travel to see us we perform most of our evaluation and scheduling using phone, email, and fax. Patients will then travel to us and spend 2 to 3 days at our facility.
The pre-operative consult is the day before reversal surgery and the surgery is the next following day.
We reverse tubal ligations through a small 2 to 4 inch incision made just above the pubic hair line. The surgery is out-patient and lasts approximately 60 minutes.
Patients then return to the Hyatt House of Raleigh Hotel to recover and are seen in our office for a post-operative evaluation the day after surgery.
After the post-operative evaluation, patients then return home and can attempt to become pregnant as soon as they feel comfortable. Most of our patients can return to work within 7 to 10 days and most will become pregnant within the first 12 months of having reversal surgery.

Does Reversing Tubes Really Work?
Tubal reversal surgery at our center can be very successful and can provide patients with an alternative treatment to in-vitro fertilization. Tubal reversal allows you a chance to become pregnant every month and over many months these chances add up and, unlike IVF, tubal reversal allows you the chance to become pregnant more than once.
In our experience approximately 2 out of 3 of our patients will become pregnant after reversing their tubes.
We have comprehensive pregnancy statistics after tubal reversal collected from over 10,000 of our reversal patients.The American Society for Reproductive Medicine has consistently issued committee opinions on the role and effectiveness of tubal surgery.1
Our patients continually update us with reports documenting their pregnancy success. These messages are updated frequently and can be viewed within the Pregnancy Testimonials and Patient Reviews sections of our website.
