Patients having vasectomy reversed will receive general anesthesia under the care of an experienced anesthesia provider.

Patients have their follow-up visit the day after their surgery and are then free to return home. Patients can return to work in 3 to 5 days and resume sexual activity after 2 weeks.

A confirmatory semen sample is recommended 3 months after vasectomy reversal and most patients should achieve pregnancy within 12 to 18 months of vasectomy reversal.


Success of reversing vasectomy

The success of vasectomy reversal is mostly determined by the length of time since having the vasectomy procedure. Although vasectomy reversal success rates can be as high as 97% for men who have reversal within the first several years of having a vasectomy, the average success of vasectomy reversal is approximately 85% among all reversal procedures.


About Dr. Monteith and Vasectomy Reversal

Dr. Monteith is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology.
Obstetricians and Gynecologists are physicians who, by virtue of satisfactory completion of an accredited program of graduate medical education, possess special knowledge, skills and professional capability in the medical and surgical care of women related to pregnancy and disorders of the female reproductive system. Dr. Monteith is not a board certified urologist.

Dr. Monteith completed a formal one week microsurgical training course at the Cleveland Clinic. He has been performing female sterilization reversal since 2008.

Dr. Monteith sought additional training in vasectomy and vasectomy reversal through one-on-one professional mentorships. Dr. Monteith has performed minimally invasive vasectomy since 2007 and began offering minimally invasive vasectomy reversal in 2014.

Dr. Monteith performs minimally invasive vasectomy reversal in his in-office operating room under general anesthesia. He performs vasovasostomy (end to end connections) vasectomy reversal but does not perform vasoepididymostomy (vas deferens to epididymis) by-pass procedures. The majority of reversals can be successfully performed as vasovasostomy procedures.

It is difficult to predict preoperatively who will require a vasoepididymostomy procedure.
Men who have had vasectomy greater than 10 years are more at risk for requiring vasoepididymostomy and should consider having reversal with a Urologist who is fellowship trained in performing vasoepididymostomy procedures.

Dr. Monteith offers office consultations for patients who are considering vasectomy reversal at A Personal Choice.

Meet Dr. Monteith

As a surgeon my reputation & integrity are extremely important to me. I’ve been providing new choices & new beginnings since 2008. I’ve had the distinct privilege of being the first surgeon in the world to report successful pregnancy within the peer reviewed medical literature after reversal of transcervical hysteroscopic tubal sterilization. Permanent is not forever at my practice! HAVE QUESTIONS?

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!”

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.

What is the difference in the tube reversal and the IVF? which one is better recommended? Me and my newly wife want to have a kid.


    Dr. Monteith Reply

    Reversal is a surgical procedure to rejoin the tubes and allow for natural pregnancy. Reversal is often more affordable and can be more successful.

    IVF averages $14,000 for each try. IVF requires the woman get high dose hormone injections, the eggs are removed with a needle, and sperm is then added to the eggs. When the eggs are fertilized and if they start growing they are then inserted back into the woman. The average chance of success is approximately 40% but depends on the age of the woman.

    If you have had a vasectomy then they need to use a needle to extract sperm from you…and that adds $3 to $5,000 cost to the total cost of IVF.

Good morning
My husband and I are both fixed and we r wanting to get more information an vasectomy reveal and tubal reveal . He will be 42 in June and I’ll be 32 in December. Is there any way we can get more information about both procedures??? And the coast ??

    If you want to become pregnant you both need reversal or you need to have IVF and sperm retrieved with a needle.

    Reversing a vasectomy is generally the best way to start…easier, safer, and if it works then you can proceed with tubal reversal. A vasectomy reversed in the first 5 years has an excellent chance of success. You should send us your tubal ligation records for review. Most tubal ligations can be reversed but if they did an aggressive tubal ligation or you have severely damaged tubes then you may want to skip the vasectomy reversal and go straight to IVF with needle aspiration of sperm.

    Both tubal reversal and vasectomy reversal costs $6,900 at our center plus $150 to schedule each procedure. The combined cost would be $13,800.

    Keep in mind that a single cycle of IVF can cost $14,000. If you have sperm aspiration you would need to add another $3,000 to $5,000 to the cost of IVF.

    Reversal can be more affordable in the long run. Call us at (919) 977-5050 if you have any questions.
