How is tubal ligation reversed at our center?

Our practice was among the early pioneers of outpatient tubal reversal surgery.

In the 1970’s female sterilization reversal was performed in hospitals, surgery times exceeded three (3) hours, self-retaining retractors were routinely used, and patients were hospitalized for several days. This made tubal reversal surgery a major production and unaffordable for many.

Mini-incision Tubal Ligation Reversal

We began performing tubal reversal surgery in an outpatient ambulatory setting in 1996. We perfected our techniques and streamlined our approach such that most reversal surgeries are sixty (60) to ninety (90) minutes. We made smaller incisions and minimized the use of self-retaining retractors. Our patients now enjoy the benefits of shorter operating times and quicker recoveries with much less pain than the more traditional approach to tubal reversal surgery.

We have been able to keep the tubal reversal surgery affordable and successful.

Type of Tubal Ligations Reversed

We are able to reverse over 98% of the tubal ligations among all the patients who have surgery at our center. These women all have a chance at natural conception and pregnancy.

Can your tubal ligation be reversed?

In my experience we have found that most types of tubal ligation can be reversed and provide patients with a chance of natural pregnancy.

Tubal reversal can be more affordable and successful than in-vitro fertilization, every month provides a chance at pregnancy, and provides patients with the opportunity to become pregnant more than once.

Scheduling is easy! We encourage you to call us if you have any questions.

After completing the on-line scheduling form, a nurse will call you and complete a phone health interview. After completing the phone health interview, the nurse will email important documents which need to be signed and returned with full surgery payment within 48 hours.

Once full payment has been made, patients can consider their surgery date firmly established and they are then free to make travel arrangements to Raleigh, North Carolina. Patients will spend two (2) days and three (3) nights in a luxurious hotel in Raleigh, North Carolina.

  • Surgery consultation is the first day
  • Reversal surgery is the second day
  • Post-operative visit and consultation is the third day

Patients will return home after their post-operative visit. Many patients will feel well enough to return home by car or plan the day after surgery. Patients are encourage to refrain from heavy lifting or exertion the first four (4) weeks after surgery. Patients can return to  a desk job or light duty work within seven (7) to ten (10) days of having surgery.

Dr. Monteith advises patients they can start trying to become pregnant as soon as they feel comfortable after tubal reversal surgery. On average about 2 out of every 3 patients who have reversal will become pregnant. Most patients will become pregnant within the first year of having tubal reversal surgery.

"Dr. Monteith prepared me mentally for the pre, during and post procedure journey. He also provided me with all the tools necessary for a comfortable recovery. I'm definitely confident in this Dr's work, and especially glad at how little pain I experienced throughout the process. It would be worth it to visit Dr. Monteith no matter what state you have to travel from, I drove from Virginia."

"Very comforting and knowledgeable experience not only was the staff pleasant so was the atmosphere! I drove 3 hours so i did my research. I was impressed with the information, visuals, and on hand knowledge about what the procedure was all about. I felt like an expert after i left! Not to mention the 45 min in and out time. I will be recommending this to all my colleagues thank you!"

- J.W.

"Dr Monteith, and his staff, were all very professional about my decision to have a vastectomy. They informed me of the risks, the surgery procedure, and the post-surgery care. The procedure itself was relatively painless. I would rate this as a 2/10. I highly recommend Dr Monteith; he even sent me a text message after the surgery to give me a personal update on my procedure. The procedure was quick."

- S.E.

"If you're in the market for a Vasectomy you need to give Dr. Monteith a serious look. Just compare the information on his website to the information you'll get from other options around the triangle. It's hard to get solid answers on cost, procedure and expectations up front from other offices but A Personal Choice plays no games and has great informative well designed website. Dr. Monteith makes it easy!"

- J.P.

"Excellent care. I visited Dr. Monteith for a single visit appointment on a Friday. Very clean, comfortable office. Pleasant staff. The procedure was quick and I went back to work for a little while. The only pain I experienced was soreness beginning about 4 hours post procedure, lasting for 24 hours, then subsiding rapidly. I was fine by Monday. The office checked on me twice, no problems. I would recommend Dr. Monteith to anyone.

- M.D.
