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.

    I a 33 yrs old, i have type 2 diabeties. I have had 4 children by c-section, i had my tubes tied with my last child in 2014. Is it safe and possible to get mine reversed and how long would after the procedure would i be able to become pregnant?

      We should be able to reverse your tubes. You should send us your tubal ligation records for a free review (if available).

      You should consider our screening laparoscopy because of your history of c-sections and the possibility of scar tissue.

      We charge $6,400 for tubal reversal surgery. You should send us your records from your tubal ligation for a free review. Sometimes patients cannot get their records.

      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 an surgery insurance policy. The laparoscopy costs an additional $1,500.

      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.
