Our main goal is to provide the best sterilization reversal currently available. But more importantly, we are here to help you to fulfill your dream of becoming pregnant.
Where do we do them?
We perform tubal ligation reversal in a full service hospital, CHI St. Luke’s Health–Patients Medical Center. The CHI St. Luke’s Health–Patients Medical Center is located in the Clear Lake/Pasadena area with major international airport access.
Why is it necessary to perform the procedure in a hospital setting?
While intra operative complications are very rare, it is much safer to have abdominal surgery in a hospital setting with enhanced facilities.
Are there any hidden charges?
No. Our package covers everything needed for tubal reversal, including:
- Microsurgical techniques
- Surgery in hospital environment
- Follow-up for fertility care – free
- First trimester pregnancy monitoring – free
I cannot decide—“should I go for in vitro fertilization or reversal of tubal ligation” ?
The two primary choices are in vitro fertilization-IVF (test-tube babies) or reversal of tubal ligation. IVF is very expensive—generally from $10,000 to $15,000 per cycle—and it is a difficult, long process, offering a 25-30% chance for pregnancy after each trial cycle. On the other hand, tubal ligation reversal involves a one-time low cost expense. With tubal ligation reversal, the couple can attempt to conceive as many children as desired, and the success rate is over 50%.
How is tubal ligation reversal performed?
Tubal ligation reversal is performed using microsurgical tubal anastomosis. After opening the blocked ends of the remaining tubal segments, a blue dye is injected through the cervix, and its free flow from the previously blocked ends of the tube is observed. This step ensures that the fallopian tube is open from the uterine end to the tube’s fimbrial end. The newly created tubal openings are then drawn next to each other by placing a retention suture in the connective tissue that lies beneath the fallopian tubes. Microsurgical sutures are used to precisely ally the different layers of the tube while avoiding the inner layer of the fallopian tube.
What do I have to do now?
Please sign a copy of the release of medical record and request operative reports from the physician who performed your tubal ligation.
- You may consider a blood test to check day 3 of FSH (to check for ovarian reserve). This term relates to the capability of conceiving.
- The second test is a sperm count to make sure that the significant other is fertile.
Payment in full is collected before the surgery. We accept cash, cashier orders, money orders, and credit cards. We do not accept personal checks.
