What is a tubal reversal?
A tubal reversal or tubal ligation reversal consists of very carefully attaching two ends of a Fallopian tube that were previously separated in the middle of the tube. Separation during tubal ligation may have been done by cutting and tying, burning, cauterization, or placing rings or clamps.
What should I look for in a microscopic tubal reversal surgeon?
Microscopic tubal reversal surgery has been called the ultimate in microsurgical procedures and is indeed one of the most challenging surgeries in medicine. You’ll want a surgeon who has many years of performing microscopic tubal reversals with thousands of successes. Be sure the experienced surgeon is performing your tubal reversal. If a surgeon’s partner has had thousands of successes, but he himself has been doing reversals for just a few years, you may want to keep looking. One of the most important things to look for are hundreds of patient testimonials. Satisfied tubal reversal patients are usually eager to share their stories about their tubal reversal and babies. If a surgeon is successful, he will have many tubal reversal patient testimonials like Dr. Rosenfeld does. Many of our patients offer their emails or Facebook pages so you can talk with them personally about their experiences.
