Tubal Reversal in Cleveland, Ohio (OH)

Every day hundreds of women believe they are done having children and choose to get a tubal ligation, only to later realize they want another baby. Tubal reversal can help some women achieve that dream.

Tubal reversal is microsurgery that reconnects the two remaining sections of the fallopian tubes. Because the fallopian tube's diameter can vary from one end to the other the most successful surgery occurs if the two sections are close to the same size.

It is important to know that this surgery is not a guarantee that you will get pregnant again, but it is your best option.

Each year more than 140,000 people in their reproductive
years are diagnosed with cancer. This includes more than
11,000 women under the age of 40 who are diagnosed
with breast cancer each year and 21 percent of women
diagnosed with gynecologic cancers.
Fortunately cancer survivorship rates are high. Over
75 percent of patients diagnosed with cancer under
age 45 survive at least five years. Many young cancer
patients have no children or want more children. Cancer
treatment can, however, often compromise future fertility.
It is very important, therefore, for patients and physicians
to know of the many effective options for fertility
preservation for cancer patients.
At University Hospitals MacDonald Women's Hospital
Division of Reproductive Endocrinology & Fertility, we
offer a comprehensive infertility program that includes
many fertility preservation options for patients with
cancer diagnoses at University Hospitals Seidman
Cancer Center and adolescent and young cancer
patients at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies &
Children's Hospital.
