What is Tubal Reversal?

Tubal Reversal is a process for those women who would like to restore their fertility in order to have more babies. This surgery, also known as tubal ligation reversal, microsurgical tubal reanastomosis, and sterilization reversal, is done by opening the previously blocked fallopian tube so that the egg can be fertilized by the sperm. It is a very safe procedure.

For tubal reversal surgery, different techniques are used in comparison to conventional surgery. Microsurgical reanastomosis (tubal reversal) involves the use of very delicate suturing and high magnification. All of these methods are used just to open the fallopian tube between the uterus and ovary.

Tubal reversal has been successful for over 30 years, and continues to be the best way to achieve pregnancy after tubal ligation. The whole tubal reversal procedure takes less than 2 hours. After a tubal reversal, pregnancy is possible simply by having sex, and does not require in vitro fertilization (IVF).
