For those women and couples who are researching traveling for tubal reversal surgery this is one of the questions that arises most often:
How long will I have to stay in town?
The answer depends on whether the tubal reversal surgery is being performed as an outpatient procedure or in the hospital setting. If you are having the procedure performed in the hospital then your stay may be a few days to a week.
Many women are choosing to have their tubal reversal surgery performed on an outpatient basis. Not only is it less expensive it is safer. The reason it is safer is due to the fact that surgery time is less and less surgery time means less anesthesia is being used. Also, there is no risk of picking up a hospital infection.

Women travel from all over the world tin order to have Dr. Berger or Dr. Monteith perform their procedure.
