N.S. and her fiancé initially saw me for consultation because her fiancé had previously had a vasectomy and they wanted to plan on having children in the near future. We explored all of their options including vasectomy reversal versus proceeding directly to a testicular biopsy. We also did a brief fertility evaluation on N.S. to ensure we had all of the right information before they made any decisions.
For women who have had their tubes tied, sometimes they enter new relationship and they decide that they want to untie them. There are a couple of options available to them such as in vitro fertilization, but for some, they will prefer to do a tubal reveral procedure. It is a surgical procedure. It is done in the hospital and it involves an incision like a cesarean section incision and through that we are able to reach in, take the tubes and make them whole again. This might be something for you.

While I love the practice of in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and the amazing benefits it provides my patients, I still believe that surgery has a vital role. As our field has developed and grown, surgical techniques have also improved, making surgery less invasive and more effective than ever before. Depending on the individual patient and the problem we are facing, surgery can be used both to improve natural fertility and to improve outcomes with fertility treatments.
