Women will often say they wish they could have another baby but they made the mistake of having their tubes tied. Some will tell them that they have the option of IVF. For some couples this may be a viable option but for others it is not. Just the cost of IVF can be staggering for many couples. For other couples the thought of IVF is not only scary it seems so unnatural.
If a woman is lucky someone will mention that she can have a tubal reversal or have her tubes untied. Because tubal reversal surgery is not heard of as often as IVF many couples do not know that this is even an option. Many physicians will mention that IVF is an option and totally disregard the tubal reversal information. This is often due to the fact that most physicians are not exposed to tubal reversal while in medical school. It seems a lot of physicians heard about and may have even studied IVF a majority have very little knowledge about tubal ligation reversal.
Tubal reversal is performed by expert surgeons who repair the fallopian tubes to either restore fertility or for relief of Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome. The more experience the surgeon has the better the success with repair. Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center is the only center dedicated solely to tubal reversal surgery. Dr. Berger is an early pioneer in the field of tubal ligation reversal and developed the low cost outpatient procedure. Couples travel from around the world to have Dr. Berger and Dr. Monteith perform their reversal surgeries. Because this is the only type of surgeries performed these surgeons have seen cases that were thought to be irreparable. Not only were the fallopian tubes repaired but also healthy pregnancies followed. The fallopian tube repair rate stands at 98% at CHTRC.
If as woman had her tubes tied it does not mean that she cannot have children naturally again. Tubal reversal surgery gives couples the opportunity to have a child the most natural way possible. Not only is reversal surgery less taxing on the woman’s body then IVF it is also more affordable. The couple also has the chance to have more children if they so decide without added medical intervention.
