Costs of Tubal Reversal Surgery
At A Personal Choice

Tubal ligation reversal surgery at our center takes approximately one hour and no overnight hospital stay is required.
 The advanced surgery techniques used by Dr. Monteith result in a low cost outpatient procedure that has produced the most tubal reversal babies born worldwide.

Our tubal reversal
More affordable and effective than IVF

Tubal reversal allows you the chance to become pregnant naturally, every month you have a chance, and you can become pregnant more than once. Tubal reversal can be more effective and more affordable than in-vitro fertilization.

  • Tubal reversal surgery fee $6,400
  • Average tubal reversal pregnancy rate 70%

In comparison, the cost of a single cycle of in-vitro fertilization (IVF) averages $14,000 and the average IVF success rate is 36% for each cycle attempted.

Our tubal surgery fees

The fee for surgery is all-inclusive and covers everything except the cost of your travel, meals, lodging, and prescription medications. Surgical fees are due in full within 24 hours of scheduling your surgery.

  • Tubal ligation reversal is $6,400
  • Optional screening laparoscopy $1,500 (when combined with tubal ligation reversal)

We have separate fees for tubal repair procedures, reversal of fimbriectomy tubal ligation, and tubal hydrosalpinx repair. Details on the costs of these tubal repair procedures are available by calling our office.

Our surgery fees are all inclusive & cover:

  • Preoperative record review and consultation
  • Surgeon’s fee
  • Anesthesia fees
  • Surgical supplies
  • Operating facility fees
  • Post-operative visit and follow-up care

The surgical fee payment can be made by bank-to-bank wire transfer, Visa, MasterCard, Discover card, or sending a cashier’s check or money order by over-night delivery. Payments by credit card will be subject to an additional processing fee.

Screening laparoscopy
Unique to our practice

We are the only center offering patients an insurance policy during tubal ligation reversal surgery: Screening laparoscopy.

Although we are able to repair most tubal ligations, we offer patients who desire more certainty about their surgery an optional screening laparoscopy procedure. This procedure allows a quick evaluation of your fallopian tubes using a camera inserted through a small incision made inside your belly button.

If tubal repair is not possible then patients who choose the screening laparoscopy option will receive a refund of their entire surgical fee!

Patients who choose to have a screening laparoscopy at the time of tubal reversal surgery will pay $7,900 (tubal reversal fee $6,400 + screening laparoscopy fee $1,500). If we cannot reverse at least one tube then patients who choose to have a screening laparoscopy will be refunded $6,400.

For more information: Advantages of screening laparoscopy during tubal reversal.

Scheduling fee

When you are ready to schedule your reversal surgery, payment of a $125 scheduling fee is required to be added to the surgery schedule.

The $125 scheduling fee covers the cost involved in planning and scheduling your surgery: 20 minute medical history phone interview, registration paper work, surgical date selection, ordering preoperative lab work, and providing advice for travel and hotel reservations.

The scheduling fee can be conveniently paid with a credit card.

Health insurance and tubal reversal

Most health insurances will not pay for elective surgery. Tubal reversal surgery is often considered an elective procedure – even if you are having abnormal symptoms after your tubal ligation.

 

Surgery cancellation and rescheduling

Cancellation of surgery within 15 to 21 days of the surgery date will result in a 50% cancellation fee. Cancellation of a procedure within 14 days of the date of surgery, regardless of the reason, will result in forfeiture of 100% of the surgical fee.

Patients may reschedule their surgery date one time, outside of 3 weeks of the initial surgery date, at no charge. Additional date changes will require a rescheduling fee of $1500.

Rescheduling surgery within 15 to 21 days of the date of surgery, regardless of the reason, will result in forfeiture of 50% of the surgical fee. Rescheduling surgery within 14 days of the date of surgery, regardless of the reason, will result in forfeiture of 100% of the surgical fee.

Refunds on cancellations may take up to 30 days to process.

    Hi I had my tubes tied back in 2002 and I had a ablation also back in 2013 but as of a year ago I started to get a lite period again every month for 4 days out of the month, my question is am I still able to get my tubes reversed being that I had both of these procedures done??

    1. Dr. Monteith says:

      In general it is recommended that you not become pregnant after having an ablation procedure.

      Tubal reversal and pregnancy are possible if you are having regular periods of at least 3 days duration after your ablation. All pregnancies after ablation are considered high risk. Most IVF doctors will recommend using a gestational surrogate. IVF costs average $14,000 and you will have to pay the surrogate even more.

      If you are not having periods then we would not consider you a candidate for reversal. There is no medical treatment to make your periods return.

      Ablation will decrease the chance of pregnancy because it permanently damages the lining and muscle of the uterus.

      If your periods are light then you do have some functioning endometriumm but we are not always certain if it is enough to allow for pregnancy. There is no accurate way to be certain.

      We cannot provide an accurate percentage about the success of women getting pregnant after reversal with a prior ablation because there are no large scale studies looking at this. We have had women become pregnant naturally after tubal reversal with a prior ablation but don’t have a large enough group of these patients to provide meaningful statistics.

      Studies looking at women who have become pregnant after ablation show that about 50% will miscarry and about 50% will have live born babies.

      You should read these six articles I wrote about ablation, reversal, and the risks of pregnancy: Tubal Reversal and Ablation

      The ablation will decrease the chances of pregnancy but if you are having regular monthly periods of at least three days duration then pregnancy is certainly possible. If you are not having regular periods then I would advise against a reversal because pregnancy is not likely.

      In general pregnancy is not recommended after ablation because each pregnancy is at higher risk; miscarriage, growth restriction, early delivery, c-section and adherent placenta. The literature suggests pregnancies are at higher risk but many will do well.

      It is possible to become pregnant after having an endometrial ablation and then a tubal reversal and have a healthy pregnancy if you are having regular periods of at least three days duration every month. Please call us at (919)977-5050 if you have any additional questions about tubal reversal.

      To be considered a candidate by our office you need to be having regular periods (every month) and these periods need to last for at least three days.

      All patients with ablations need a consult with me (Dr Monteith) either by phone or in person before they can schedule reversal surgery.

    I am 44 and I want a reversal tubaligation I understand that my was a small cur seperation I have my records.

      It is harder to become pregnant with increasing age so I would not delay your decision for too long.

      We do have many patients who become pregnant with tubal reversal after age 40. Most of the women who become pregnant after reversal are between the age of 40 and 43.

      The alternative treatment is in-vitro fertilization (IVF). Most IVF doctors will recommend you use donor eggs after the age of 42. A single cycle of IVF averages $14,000 and average success is 38% for each try. After age 40 IVF success decreases quickly.

      We can help you. Call us if you have questions.

      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.

      On average the chance of pregnancy after tubal ligation reversal is about 60% if you are under age 42.

      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.

    1. Dr. Monteith says:

      Michelle

      We can help you.

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

      You should send us a copy of your tubal ligation operative report for a free review and we can let you know if you are a good candidate for tubal reversal surgery.

      You can see our burned tube reversal testimonials here: Testimonials of Successful Reversal of Burned Tubes

      If you would like more reassurance about our ability to reverse your type of tubal ligation then you should consider our optional screening laparoscopy procedure.
