Welcome to the East Coast Tubal Reversal Center
The East Coast Tubal Reversal Center offers over 40 years of combined experience in tubal ligation reversal. The surgery is performed at Martha Jefferson Hospital, which is among the “Top 100” Community Hospitals in America. All of our Reproductive Endocrinologists and Infertility physician specialists have extensive experience performing highly-specialized microsurgical tubal reversal procedures.
We are also the most cost- effective program in the country with the confidence and expertise to offer a $2000 refund guarantee if the tubal reversal surgery does not successfully open at least one tube. We had the confidence to offer the first money back guarantee program in the United States. Why would you choose to have a surgeon who isn’t confident enough to offer this? Tubal reversal surgery is extremely delicate and our reproductive surgeons have years of successful clinical experience. We look forward to the opportunity to help you reach your goal of having another child.
Surgical reversal of tubal ligation also known as tubal reanastomosis is a highly successful procedure to restore normal fertility after fallopian tube ligation (tubes have been tied). Tubal reversal surgery, also known as microsurgical tubal reanastomosis, has been a common surgical therapy for decades. Until In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) became routine and successful, tubal reversal surgery was much more common.
Over the last 5 years, or so, the success rates for IVF at highly-successful programs have approached that of tubal reversal surgery in the best candidates. Also, some insurance companies now cover IVF. With these changes, tubal reversal surgery has become much less common around the world. But, IVF is over double the cost of tubal reversal surgery so is rarely more cost-effective if you are paying “out of pocket.”
Going to a center with extensive experience in tubal reversal surgery is the key. Ask how many tubal ligation reversals your doctor has done? How many in the last 6 months? How many last month? You absolutely don’t want surgery with someone who does them only occasionally. It is important that any woman considering surgery also be counseled about the benefits and drawbacks of IVF compared to tubal reversal surgery.
In the most ideal circumstances, every woman considering surgery would be counseled at a program that offered both options with high success rates. The East Coast Tubal Reversal Center and the Reproductive Medicine and Surgery Center of Virginia is such a place. Doctors Bateman, Williams, and Smith are adjunct faculty at the University of Virginia School of Medicine/University of Virginia Health system. In addition to their busy clinical practices, the doctors are also actively involved in teaching resident physicians and in collaboration with National Institutes of Health-supported research.
