Women who have blocked fallopian tubes from tubal ligation or from other conditions have two treatment choices: corrective tubal surgery or in-vitro fertilization (IVF). Both of these treatments can be effective for infertility.
Tubal ligation reversal surgery can provide women with multiple chances to become pregnant without the need for additional treatments. 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.
Can reversal surgery be successful?
We collected data on the success of tubal reversal surgery performed at our practice from July 2000 to December 2011. Over 9,935 surgeries were performed during this time period and information regarding the type of tubal ligation, patient age, and pregnancy success was collected on each surgery.
