Charles W. Monteith M.D.
Medical Director

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 10,000 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.

We are responsible for more successful tubal reversal surgeries and more tubal reversal babies than any other reversal center in the world.

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.

Our patients recover at the Hyatt Raleigh of North Hills Mall.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.

For a more technical description of how tubal ligations are reversed at our facility:
Microsurgical Tubal Anastomosis and Tubal Implantation.

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 veiwed within the Pregnancy Testimonials and Patient Reviews sections of our website.

      Your reports can be obtained from the medical records department where your tubal ligation surgery was performed.

      We charge $6,900 total plus $150 to schedule and we are located in Raleigh, North Carolina.

      We require your BMI to be less than 37 to have surgery at our center. Your BMI is officially calculated on the day of your surgical consultation.

      We do not charge patients based on BMI.

      You can check your BMI with our BMI calculator here: BMI Calculator

      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.

    Hello, I had my tubes tied in 2015. I’m 36 years old, I had c-section with all 4 of my children, is it possible to have my tubes untied and if I do have scar tissue is it still recommended for me to have them untied and have a next child

    1. Dr. Monteith says:

      Tee
      We should be able to help you. You should consider our screening laparoscopy because of your history of c-sections and the possibility of scar tissue.

      We charge $6,900 for tubal reversal surgery. You should send us your records from your tubal ligation for a free review. Sometimes patients cannot get their records. Even if you cannot obtain your records we would perform tubal reversal for you because we can reverse most tubal ligations most of the time.

      Tubal reversal can be 60% to 70% effective. The other treatment to become pregnant is In-vitro Fertilization (IVF) and this treatment cost averages $14,000 and is about 40% effective for each try.

      Tubal reversal is possible when you have a history of multiple c-sections. We have many patients who have successful reversal and pregnancy with a history of c-sections. The biggest concern with multiple (3 or more) c-sections is the possibility of severe scar tissue. If severe scar tissue exists then reversal may not be possible.

      We estimate that about 1 out of 12 women with 3 or more c-sections will have severe scar tissue that can make tubal reversal more challenging and in some cases not possible. For these patients we offer a screening laparoscopy. You can consider this similar to a surgery insurance policy.

      The laparoscopy costs an additional $1,750.

      If you choose to have a screening laparoscopy we can look with a camera during the surgery and see if you have severe scar tissue. If you have severe scar tissue we can often make a different incision…so this can increase the success of your procedure. If your tubes are not repairable or the scar tissue is too severe then we would offer you a refund of your surgical fee.
