Tubal Ligation Reversal
Tubal reversal surgery involves an abdominal surgery using a microscope to identify the ends of the fallopian tubes and reconnecting the ends of the tubes to allow women a chance of becoming pregnant after a tubal ligation surgery.
Having copies of the surgery report and pathology report (if applicable) will help the doctor during the new patient consultation. You may request these records from your previous doctor or the hospital where the tubal ligation was performed.
Patients will schedule a consultation with Dr. Zeringue and review the tubal reversal surgery as well as the alternative option of IVF. After testing, patients can schedule surgery.
Our surgery coordinator handles the details of surgery scheduling and will help coordinate payment of the surgical fees. The coordinator will schedule the pre-op visit, surgery, and post op visits.
Day of Surgery
On the day of surgery, patients will arrive at our center where the nurse and anesthesia provider will complete the necessary preparations. Surgery lasts approximately 3 to 3.5 hours.
