Reversal VS IVF

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.

What Our Patients Are Saying

“We had our surgery on 3/18/15 and on 02/02/16 our 7 pound 11 oz baby girl was born! I’m 34 years old and had tubal ligation done via clamps 8 years prior so this surgery really does work! 8 years later I had the reversal and 9 years later we were blessed with our little girl! So many doctors tried to talk us out of it-wanted us to do IVF to get our money-however praise God we went with this because it does WORK! Dr M is amazing and his staff! The area is beautiful where his office is, and if you do this procedure it will be the best money you ever spend!”

– Charlee-Belle M., Surgery

They never give you false hope, but give you the complete story. I am so happy that we chose Dr. Monteith and his staff to make our dreams a reality. Can’t wait to start trying to have a baby. I would and have recommended Dr. Monteith to ANYONE wanting a tubal ligation or vasectomy reversal. Thank you all so much for giving us this chance!”

– Angela W., Essure Reversal

“Excellent service overall! Each stage of the process was carefully explained in great detail: how the procedure works, what to expect during the procedure, what to expect after, possible side effects. Dr. Monteith himself is very knowledgeable and experienced and quite personable too. He has a great sense of humor and uses it generously to put patients at ease. I highly recommend him and his staff to anyone considering either a vasectomy or a vasectomy reversal.”

I had a tubal ligation, they took my lubes out has been 2 years, thought I was done having kids, no prior problems with conceiving but now my fiance wants to start our own family, can yall do reversal when tubes have been removed


    Dr. Monteith Reply

    If your tubes have been removed you can’t have tubal reversal. You need IVF.

Is there a payment plan for reverse of tubes after being cut tied and burned


    Dr. Monteith Reply

    We have two flexible payment options for you if you dont want to pay in full for surgery: (1) start a prepayment plan with us or (2) finance your reversal surgery.

    Prepayment plan. We do have a prepayment plan that allows you to save towards your surgery. You need to start it with at least $500 and you can contribute any amount over the next 3 years. When you have saved the full amount then you can have your surgery. You can have the surgery anytime within 3 years of starting your plan.

    If you dont have your surgery by the end of the third you you are refunded all of your money less $500. Surgery discounts, when available, are offered to prepayment account members only.

    For more information: Tubal Reversal Prepayment Plan

    Financing reversal surgery. We work with two companies who will help you finance surgery. You would apply for financing directly with United Medical Credit. The link to their company and the application for financing is on our website.

    For more information: Financing Reversal Surgery

    We charge $6400 total for tubal ligation reversal and $7500 for Essure reversal 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!

    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.

    The main advantage to tubal reversal is that every month you have a chance and you can become pregnant more than once. On average, about 2 out of every 3 women become pregnant with tubal reversal surgery.

I had the essure procedure done in 2006. Twelve years later, I met the love of my life and would love to be able to have a child with him. I’m being told that I have a better chance of getting pregnant with ivf over a essure reversal. Can you please give me any feedback on my situation. Both procedures are very costly, therefore I want to ensure we choose what would be the best for us. I appreciate any help you can offer..

    You have a tough decision and hindsight will always be 20:20. If you are under the age of 30 then IVF may be a better option statistically….the chance of pregnancy could be as high as 50% to 60% with IVF. You will also have to ask your doctor does having the Essure devices in decrease the chance of IVF success or the risks to pregnancy. There are concerns if the Essure devices are projecting into the uterine cavity the success rate of IVF may be decreased. We dont really know with certainty if there are risks to pregnancy.

    We specialize in Essure reversal and Essure removal surgery. We can reverse Essure and give you the chance of pregnancy….or we can remove Essure and leave your tubes closed. The chance of pregnancy after Essure reversal is about 40%.

    More information: Essure reversal testimonials

    The cost for the Essure reversal procedure and the Essure removal procedure is the same… $7,500. We are located in Raleigh, North Carolina.

    Please be aware that starting April 1st 2019 the fee for Essure reversal surgery will increase to $7,900 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.

    No other clinic or doctor has the experience we do. The chance of pregnancy after Essure reversal is about 40%. If you are having symptoms that started soon after Essure most patients report improvement after removal of the devices. We do have a surgery prepayment plan.

    We charge a total of $7,500 for Essure reversal/removal plus $125 to schedule surgery.
