Dr. Jyung was trained to perform microsurgical procedure and has been doing this procedure for many years with an excellent success rate. Tubal reversal surgery is done in a hospital or outpatient center. You will be given general anesthesia, which means you will be pain-free during surgery and unaware of the operation taking place.
Dr. Jyung will make a small surgical cut, called a “minilaparatomy,” a two inch line near the pubic hair line. Microscopic instruments allow the surgeon to remove any clips or rings used to block your tubes, and reconnect the ends of the tubes using very small stitches.
The surgery usually takes about two to three hours.
Before surgery, Dr. Jyung will complete a physical exam for you and your partner to determine if pregnancy can be achieved after a tubal reversal. This may include blood and imaging tests to make sure your ovaries are normal. You will need a test called a hysterosalpinogram (HSG), to check the length and function of your remaining fallopian tubes. An HSG can be doing using dye and X-ray or saline and air along with ultrasound.
