There are a lot of questions about tubal reversal surgery out there. Here is a consolidated list of questions and answers for our current and potential patients!
What is the success rate of tubal reversal surgery?
The average pregnancy success rate is around 70% for tubal reversal patients. This number can be higher or lower depending on your age and other medical conditions. Read more about success rates on our website.
How much does tubal reversal surgery cost?
Tubal reversal surgery costs $5,250. This includes all costs and there are no hidden fees. Patients can contact our nurses to set up a payment plan. Patients can also finance the surgery with CareCredit. Learn more about financing your tubal reversal with CareCredit from our blog post.
How long will it take?
Tubal reversal surgery takes about 90 minutes to complete. After this, you remain in the hospital for about 2 hours for recovery, and you are then able to either go home or a nearby hotel for the night. Dr. Morice’s surgery is outpatient, so no overnight hospital stay is required.
How do I schedule an appointment?
Call our office at (985) 702-BABY to speak with our nurses and schedule an appointment. They can also help answer any questions you have about tubal reversal surgery.
What if I live out of state?
Many of Dr. Morice’s patients travel quite a distance to see him. If you are traveling from out of town, your pre-operative visit will be the day before your surgery. You will then need to spend that night in a local hotel (Dr. Morice’s patients get discounts) and can return home the next day. Read more about traveling for your tubal reversal on our blog.
How big is the incision?
The incision is only 4-5 cm long and is below your bikini line.
How soon can I go back to work?
Patients with a mostly sedentary job that doesn’t require heavy lifting typically return to work after 5-7 days off.
How soon after my surgery can I try getting pregnant?
You can try to get pregnant after your first cycle.
How long does it take to get pregnant?
Most patients get pregnant within 1 year of tubal reversal surgery. However, some patients take longer, and unfortunately pregnancy cannot be guaranteed.
Does having a tubal reversal increase my risk for a tubal pregnancy?
While it is rare, ectopic pregnancies do occur in about 3-5% of women who have had tubal reversal surgery. This is why it’s very important to see your doctor for a pregnancy test if your period is more than 2 days late.
What do I do if I think I’m pregnant?
Contact either Dr. Morice or your local OB/GYN to see them immediately for a pregnancy test. If you live out of town and are seeing a different doctor, be sure to let us know if you are pregnant! We always like to hear good news.
