How to Search for Tubal Reversal Doctors

Jun 9, 2008
When you begin your search among all the tubal reversal doctors available, or at least say they will do a tubal ligation reversal, how do you choose? In the following paragraphs, we will list some of the questions you need to ask that will lead you to choose the best surgeon for you.

The first thing you want to know about is his knowledge of this type of surgery. What about his educational and training background? What schools did he or she attend? What training has he had? And who was he trained under? You have doctors who have done their medical school, internship training and normal residency and have never seen a tubal reversal done. Even doctors who specialized in reproductive endocrinology would be very lucky to see a tubal reversal during their training. Since most insurance doesn't cover it, many hospitals don't perform the surgery very often and this is where doctors do their residencies. So, has yours ever been trained in it? Has he even seen one done during his training?

Next we need to ask about his experience. How often has your potential doctor performed this surgery? Is it something she has done like maybe twelve times in the last five years? Or do you want a doctor who does the surgery every week day for years and has seen just about anything that can come up? Who do you think is going to be better at it and have the most experience to deal with your particular situation?

Your tubal reversal doctor's technique for carrying out the surgery is the next thing we look at in this article. How does he actually do the surgery? Does he do it through very small incisions? How does he make sure the tubes are aligned? How does he test to be sure the tubes are not blocked? It would be a shame to pay for the surgery, and go through it only to find out there is a blockage.

How about his communications? Does he provide lines of communication to answer all your questions? How easy is it to talk to him or his staff? Do you feel you are being heard and listened to? Can you get into contact with any of his previous tubal reversal patients to get a recommendation? What do others, including his patients, say about him?

Another factor to consider, which for many women will be the first factor to consider, is the cost of the operation. Just how much will that do-it-once-a-year surgeon cost you? $20,000? $10,000? I wonder. Is he trying to make up for doing so few with that price? In this case, you may just find that the best surgeon is not the one who will cost you the most. In fact, he may even be one of the least costly out there.

Does your doctor keep statistics that prove how well he does his job? Does he let you know what your chances are given your tube length, age, and type of tubal ligation done? Do you know his tubal reversal success rates? Do you know the rates of pregnancy after a tubal reversal from this doctor? Are these published and readily available to you? Does your doctor do follow-ups to collect information at six months and at one year intervals after your tubal reversal surgery?

Now take the above things and begin your search. These will help you get a good start on picking out the best possible surgeon from that list of tubal reversal doctors you have drawn up. If you don't have a list, they should help you realize you do need to do some asking and get information in order to make the best decision for you.
