Risk of Tubal Ligation Reversal
Tubal reversal surgery is more involved than vasectomy reversal because tubal ligation reversal is an intra-abdominal surgical procedure. In comparison, vasectomy reversal is performed outside the body and in the scrotum. In our experience, tubal ligation reversal surgery can be as safe as vasectomy reversal and can be safely performed as an outpatient surgery.
We have performed over 10,000 female sterilization reversals over the course of a decade and have a good track record of providing a safe surgical experience with low complication rates.
Risks of reversing tubes

Is tubal reversal surgery safe?
Any surgery has risk but in our experience the immediate risks of reversal surgery at our center are small. The risk of ectopic pregnancy is increased after tubal reversal but can be easily managed by following the early pregnancy monitoring and close follow up with your local physician.
