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.

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.

***starting April 1st 2019 the scheduling fee will increase to $150***

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.

    I wonder if I would be a candidate for tubal reversal. The hospital that performed my tubal ligation was a hospital that has been shut down for over 20 years. Getting the records would be impossible. It was performed immediately following the birth of my youngest daughter, now 22, at the end of a caesarean. He called it “cut, burned, and tied”. I am now 42 years old and would like the opportunity to enjoy motherhood and parenting. I’m fairly healthy other than the regular pings and twangs of being 42. When I was younger, I was VERY fertile, having conceived both times while on the Pill (the reason for the tubal). However, I do not have regular periods anymore. When my daughters were born it seemed I never had the time that I really wanted to spend with them due to so many obligations. Do I sound like I could be a candidate?

      We should be able to help you. If you are having irregular periods at the age of 42, then most likely you are not releasing eggs (ovulating) every month. Your doctor can easily fix this with an oral medication called Clomid.

      We can reverse most tubal ligations….even if you have no records!

      Many patients will come to us without records because they know we can repair most tubal ligation procedures…well over 90% of the time.

      You should try to get your tubal ligation operative and pathology reports by going to the medical records department in the hospital where your tubal ligation was performed.

      You should be able to request a copy of your tubal ligation operative report and a copy of the pathology report (a pathology report is only created when a segment of the tube is removed (typical with tubal ligations that involve tying and cutting the tubes). We can review these records free of charge.

      You can personally request your record from the hospital where your tubal ligation was done using our Medical Records Release/Request form: Medical Records Release Form

      You dont have to have your records to have tubal reversal at our center. You should consider our optional screening laparoscopy if you cannot get your tubal ligation records. Many patients come to us for reversal without records because they know we can repair most tubal ligations.

      We charge $6,400 for tubal reversal surgery. Many women may not be able to obtain their records…some will have surgery because they know we can repair most tubal ligations. Others will add on a screening laparoscopy.

      Please be aware that starting April 1st 2019 the fee for reversal surgery will increase to $6,900 and the scheduling fee will increase to $150. If you want to avoid the higher fees then you should schedule your surgery before April 1st or start a Reversal Prepayment Account.

      If you choose to have a screening laparoscopy we can look with a camera during the surgery and see if your tubes are repairable. If your tubes are not repairable or then we would offer you a refund of your surgical fee.
