Tubal Ligation Reversal With Dr. Monteith

I started performing tubal ligation reversal in 2008. After completing a weeklong microsurgical training course at the Cleveland Clinic and a six-month mentorship with Dr. Gary Berger, I began work full time as a tubal reversal surgeon. From 2008 to 2014, I performed over 1500 female sterilization reversal surgeries and have been responsible for a large number of babies born to mothers after tubal ligation reversal.

Reversing Tubal Ligation

I can reverse most tubal ligations. Over 98% of women who come to my center will have at least one fallopian tube reversed and approximately 2 out of every 3 of my patients will become pregnant after reversing their tubal ligation.

I have experience reversing all types of tubal ligations: tubal clips (Filshie and Hulka), tubal rings (Falope, Yoon, and silastic bands), monopolar and bipolar coagulation (tubal burning),
and ligation and resection type tubal ligations (Parkland, Pomeroy, Irving, Uchida).

I have also developed a specialization in removing and reversing the newest form of tubal occlusion, Essure sterilization. I was one of the first physicians in the world to successfully reverse Essure and Adiana sterilization. Since the initial case reports of successful reversal of hysteroscopic sterilization, I have performed over 150 Essure related surgeries.

Expertise in Reversing Sterilization

My initial expertise is in tubal ligation reversal. I worked alongside Dr. Berger for five years and in 2013, I became the Medical Director of Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center.

In 2014, I moved the practice to Raleigh to provide better amenities to my patients. I used this opportunity to change the name of my practice to A Personal Choice and to begin offering vasectomy and vasectomy reversal to men.

We now offer all our patients, both men and women, personal choices about how to best manage the complexity of their lives.

What Our Patients Are Saying

"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.
