Tubal Reanastomosis (Tubal Ligation Reversal) Information

Many women who undergo tubal ligation surgery later choose to have children again. One option available to these women is tubal ligation reversal, or tubal reanastomosis. The Center for Assisted Reproduction can perform tubal ligation reversal for qualified candidates. All three of our Board Certified Reproductive Endocrinologists specialize in this delicate microsurgical outpatient procedure. Our physicians perform tubal reanastomosis one to three times per week. The surgeries are performed in our state-of-the-art ambulatory surgery center, just across the street from Harris Methodist HEB Hospital in Bedford, TX.

How Is Tubal Ligation Reversal Performed?

Depending on the method of tubal ligation that was used previously, it may be necessary to perform a laparoscopy first to assure that adequate tubal length is present for reversal. Laparoscopy requires a small, approximately one-centimeter, incision in the navel through which a lighted telescope can be placed to view the uterus, tubes, and ovaries. Performing a laparoscopy can add ten to twenty minutes to the tubal ligation reversal procedure.

Microsurgical tubal reanastomosis is usually performed using a procedure called a mini laparotomy. If adequate tubal length is present to be reconnected, a four centimeter (approximately 2") "bikini" incision is made just below the pubic hairline and above the pubic bone. Using magnification to enlarge the image of the fallopian tubes, the blocked ends are reopened surgically. The tubes are precisely realigned using a stent, then reconnected using microsurgical sutures. The abdominal incision is closed with stitches, and the patient is discharged home the same day as the surgery.
