Tubal Reversal Surgery
Tubal Surgery Overview
Tubal reversal is offered by the Assisted Fertility Program of Jacksonville, Florida and Roanoke Virginia. Tubal reversal is sought by women with previous tubal ligations (sterilization) who now wish to become pregnant, usually due to changes in their life situations. Dr. Shaykh has years of successful experience performing tubal reversals.
Our Florida tubal reversal center was one of the first in Northern Florida and Southern Georgia, and has been available in Virginia since 2003. Tubal reversal provides a better chance of conceiving than in vitro fertilization in some cases. Tubal reversal surgery may be a good option based on several factors, including age and health, the method used in the tubal ligation, and the amount of fallopian tube tissue that remains to work with.
In order to restore the function of the fallopian tubes, Dr. Shaykh will remove any devices inserted during the original tubal reversal procedure. Tubal reversal is usually an outpatient procedure, meaning patients are able to go home the same day. Recovery usually takes three days to a week.
Tubal reversal requires a mini laparotomy where a small incision is made above the pubic bone under the hairline. It is an outpatient procedure, patients go home the same day, they may drive back home or fly that evening or preferably the following day.
While some Doctors recommend tubal reversal be done laparoscopically, or by robotic surgery, Dr. Shaykh feels this adds to the time and cost of the procedure without improving the outcome. However, if a patient requests robotic tubal reversal surgery it is available for $6,500.
Tubal reversal side effects are rare, but can include infections, bleeding, and damage to the surrounding organs. In 25 years of practice Dr. Shaykh has never had such complications.
Our Florida and Virginia tubal reversal center always recommends the procedure most likely to result in pregnancy while considering factors such as cost.
To help tubal reversal patients afford treatment, Dr. Shaykh is now offering one night of complementary lodging.
If you feel you are a candidate for tubal reversal, please make an appointment for a consult and if possible send a copy of your Tubal Ligation Operative Report to one of our offices.
*There is an additional $500 fee if a medical finance company is used. There is an additional charge for patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater and 35 and greater.
These price reductions will enable many couples, who otherwise could not afford fertility treatments, to have the child of their dreams.
In addition, Dr. Shaykh is offering one night of complementary lodging for patients traveling to our center for Tubal Reversal procedures.
