TUBAL Ligation REVERSAL
Pregnancy Success

For many patients tubal ligation reversal surgery can be more affordable, more successful, and can provide more chances at becoming pregnant than can in-vitro fertilization (IVF).

The leading group of infertility specialists, The American Society For Reproductive Medicine, has consistently supported tubal surgery as a treatment for tubal ligation and tubal blockage.1

Many women who have tubal blockage will consider having tubal surgery or IVF. It is important for patients to understand how having tubal surgery can be a better option than IVF for most women.

    Hi I wanted to know can you reverse if your tubes was clipped and burned.

    1. Dr. Monteith says:

      Yes we can reverse most tubal ligation procedures. We charge $6400 total plus $125 to schedule and we are located in Raleigh, North Carolina. Insurance will not pay for tubal reversal surgery. You should send us your tubal ligation records for a free review.

      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. Patients stay in Raleigh a total of 2 nights and 3 days. The consultation is the first day, surgery the second day, and postoperative visit is the third day.

      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.
