I am so blessed. I've had my tubes tied and burned in 3 places (Oct. 1995). I've always regretted having a tubal ligation. I'll never forget going to Kaiser Permanente to be let down. They could have told me over the phone that they do not do reversals. I was so upset. My boyfriend took me to lunch and sitting there I checked my messages and I had one from Jeannie, Lakeshore Surgical Center. She informed me that she received my operative report and even though my tubes were burned in three places I was still a good candidate for a reversal. I called her and made my appointment for the following week. Dr. Greene and his entire staff are excellent. I was so nervous but reassured by the staff that everything would work out. I missed my period for February 17, 2006. I took a home pregnancy test on the 18th (positive). Took a blood pregnancy test on the 19th (Positive). Had a vaginal ultra sound on the 24th and found out my miracle baby is where he belongs, in my uterus. We are so happy. This is truly a blessing. I thank God and Lakeshore Surgical Center. Any woman who wishes to have a reversal I would encourage you to do so and definitely speak to the team at Lakeshore. I promise you won't regret it.

Our Policy on Testimonials
We do not ever release patient′s names. We feel you should have control over your medical decisions and information. We want you to know that we will never ask that of you. The tubal ligation reversal testimonials on our website are the words of the patients themselves we don′t change them except when they name their husband or something else that would give away their identity. In 32 years of surgery I have had a lot of patients that were kind enough to write a note of thanks and I never have had any message that was more than several sentences. People just don′t write long involved notes like I see on some websites.
