Unique To Our Practice
We are the only center offering patients an insurance policy during tubal ligation reversal surgery: Screening laparoscopy.
We never require a screening laparoscopy. This procedure is always optional. You should think of the optional screening laparoscopy as you would an insurance policy.
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 surgical fee!
Patients who choose to have a screening laparoscopy at the time of tubal reversal surgery will pay (tubal reversal surgery fee + screening laparoscopy fee). If we cannot reverse at least one tube then patients who choose to have a screening laparoscopy will be refunded their tubal reversal surgery fee.

When you are ready to schedule your reversal surgery, payment of a $150 scheduling fee is required to be added to the surgery schedule.
***Starting December 1st 2022 the scheduling fee will increase to $175***
The 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 pre-operative lab work
- providing advice for travel and hotel reservations
The scheduling fee can conveniently be paid with a credit card.
