Tubal Ligation Reversal

Tubal ligation reversal surgery has the potential to restore fertility for women who have undergone tubal sterilization. This procedure reconnects the fallopian tubes after a woman has had her “tubes tied,” which restores their natural function and creates fertility in 80% of outcomes.

The procedure is carried out under general anesthesia at an outpatient center and takes approximately two hours. The abdomen is accessed by a two-inch incision, then the fallopian tubes are identified and the area of blockage is surgically excised. The free ends of the fallopian tube are then carefully reconnected using a very fine suture. The most successful tubal ligation reversals are seen in patients who are younger than 40 years old, who have three or more inches of healthy fallopian remaining after tubal ligation, and with fallopian tubes originally blocked by clips, rings or minimally burned.
