The Tubal reversal procedure performed by talented surgeon Dr. Morice is called a microsurgical tubal renastomosis. This procedure is done either very powerful loupes or a microscope.
Microsurgical tubal renastomosis surgery requires a very meticulous and competent surgeon such as Dr. Morice. The very high success rates achieved by Dr. Morice’s tubal reversal patients are directly related to his techniques and the skills that he has developed from more than a decade of performing tubal reversal surgeries.
Tubal Reversal Procedure:
1) A skilled anesthesiologist will anesthetize you prior to your surgery.
2) The surgical team will then prepare you for surgery by prepping and draping your body to prevent infections.
3) Dr. Morice will start the tubal reversal surgery by obtaining visualization of your tubes by either making small laparoscopic incicions or through a small laparotomy incision (an ‘open’ incision).
4) Tubal reversal surgery is then performed using either very powerful loupes or a microscope. Using meticulous care, Dr. Morice will remove the blocked segments of the fallopian tubes and re-connect the remaining segments (re-anastomosis). This is done using very, very small stitches which will absorb naturally into your body as the tubes heal.
5) Dye is then run through the uterus and fallopian tubes to ensure that the tubal segments have been successfully sutured together.
6) Once this is confirmed, absorbable stitches are used to close up the initial incision and you are awoken by the anesthesiologist and taken to recovery.
Most patients can expect to have very mild discomfort for 1-3 days after the surgery and will fully recover within 1-2 weeks.
Patients are able to bathe 48 hours after the procedure, but need to avoid strenuous activity for 2 weeks. After 2 weeks, most patients can resume their normal activities. Your stitches will dissolve naturally.
Sexual activity can be resumed 4 weeks after surgery, but Dr. Morice asks patients to wait two months after surgery before attempting pregnancy. This gives the tubes the maximum amount of time to heal.
