  • Average tubal reversal pregnancy rate 70%

The fee of $6,900 is our cash discounted fee. To obtain the cash discounted fee you must pay the entire surgery fee by bank wire, cashiers check, cash, or credit card.

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.

Screening laparoscopy
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.

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

Scheduling 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.

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.

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 just got my medical records from the hospital where I delivered 3 children by c- sections from 15 years ago. I am 36 years old now and I am badly wanting to have another child. I’m not understanding my records it says “ there was a band of adhesion to the anterior abdominal wall; this was cauterized and tied with 0 victuals suture. The right tube was visualized out to the fimbrianted end and the knuckle portion was tied times two with 1 chronic suture and excised. Does that mean my tubes where just tied and I can have them untied or does that mean they where burnt??

      It does not matter if your tubes were just tied or tied and burnt. We should be able to reverse your tubal ligation.

      We should be able to help you. We can reverse most tubal ligation procedures.

      You should send us your tubal ligation reports for a free review and we can let you know if you are a candidate for reversal surgery. Your reports can be obtained from the medical records department where your tubal ligation surgery was performed.

      We charge $6400 total plus $125 to schedule and we are located in Raleigh, North Carolina.

      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.

      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.

    I had 4 sections can I still have my tubes untie

    1. Dr. Monteith says:

      We should be able to reverse your tubes. 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. 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.

      Please be aware starting April 1st 2019 the cost for tubal reversal surgery will increase to $6,900. The scheduling fee will increase from $125 to $150.

      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 $1,500. The screening laparoscopy fee will increase from $1,500 to $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.

  3. Allison says:

    Hello, my name is Allison. I just had my third child on January 18 and did the tubal ligation after giving birth. It’s only been a few weeks but I’m already regretting my choice to get tubal ligation. How soon does a potential patient get seen to start the process of reversal?

    1. Dr. Monteith says:

      Allison
      If you had a c-section we advise you to wait 6 months to heal before having tubal reversal. If you had your tubal ligation any other way then you can come for reversal at any time. It can be common for some to experience regret after tubal ligation. I would advise you wait several months because many will go back and forth and ultimately decide they made the right decision to have a tubal ligation.

      If you ultimately change your mind and would like to undo your tubal ligation we will always be here to help you.

  4. Felicia Childs says:

    Hey I got my tubes tied after I had my second child. I would like to have a tubal ligation done. I was wondering if you could help me. What are my risks? Once the procedure is done what are my chances of becoming pregnant. Will I be considered high risk once I’m pregnant?

    Hello I’m 30 I had my tubes tied due to endometriosis I had to have a abrasion and my Fallopian tubes were infected so they had to be remove I stil have a small period is there any hope for me

    1. Dr. Monteith says:

      If your tubes have been removed and you also had an ablation then you will not be able to become pregnant. If you do IVF you will need a gestational surrogate.
