CATEGORY: Tubal Reversal
We spend so much time talking with patients on Facebook, and in emails, I think we fail sometimes to explain a very important thing about the cost of tubal reversal. Sometimes, not always, you can pay less and get more. The operation we do for $7,900 is anywhere from $20,000 to $30,000 in a hospital. The reason for the savings is that we only do reversals and we have only done tubal reversals for nearly two decades – since 2001. A hospital has to have the ability to do all sorts of surgeries. This takes different equipment and different people with different abilities, as well as separate supplies for many procedures. The higher costs mean that they do fewer cases. I can assure you that there are few people with $20,000 to $30,000 to spend to get their tubal ligations reversed. The few doctors that do reversals in hospitals do not get a lot of experience and experience is extremely important. Dr. Turner and I can go for weeks without a difficult case, but recently there was one that appeared to be very easy until we looked. The surprise difficult case is where experience counts. If you are considering tubal reversal, I hope you give us a chance to serve you. If you go somewhere else make sure that the doctor does a lot of reversals.
