With the release of the Tubal Reversal Pregnancy Report 2009 more couples are inquiring about the tubal reversal procedure. The main reason they are doing this is because they want children after a tubal ligation. With the release of the report the news is out that the pregnancy success rate is actually better with tubal reversal than the alternative treatment of IVF.
The cost of tubal reversal will vary depending on the surgeon and where the surgery is performed. If the surgery is performed in a Center as an outpatient procedure it is less expensive than in the hospital. Beware of this when a surgeon tells you his price when performing surgery in the hospital setting because the hospital costs are many times not figured in.
While figuring the cost of reverse surgery couples many tend to think that having the surgery performed in the hospital may be better or safer. This is not true. What many do not know is it is safer to have the surgery performed in a Center. While having the procedure performed in the hospital a patient is subjected to any illness that another patient may have. This is known as a hospital acquired illness. While at a Center that just performs tubal ligation reversals all of the couples are there for the same thing.
The costs of tubal reversal surgery in the hospital can run as much as $20,000.00 and many times more. The cost at the leading tubal reversal center is about $7,000.00. Why so much less? Because everything is included pertaining to the surgery. The mistake many make is that they think having surgery closer to home is more cost-effective.
With the cost being the difference between about $20,000 and $7000 many choose to have the surgery performed at a Center. This is not even considering the fact that at a Center it is performed as an outpatient procedure. What this means is that when the surgery is done you go back to your hotel room with another adult that accompanies you to rest. You do not have to stay at the hospital. The following day a tubal reversal nurse will check you and your incision and you are able to return home.
There is information available for those inquiring about tubal reversal surgery. The best known center not only has videos on their website but a very active message board and blog. The information is easy to read and there are staff members available to answer your questions free of charge.
