Tubal Ligation/Vasectomy Reversal

If a woman or man who has had a tubal ligation or a vasectomy later decides they want a child, they may request to have the procedure reversed. Although the procedures are meant to be permanent, it may be possible to reverse them.

During a tubal ligation, the fallopian tubes are cut. If there is enough tube remaining, a skilled microsurgeon can remove the blocked ends of the tubes and sew the two pieces together using very fine suture material. The procedure is called tubal anastomosis. Approximately 70 to 80 percent of patients are able to conceive after this procedure.

The procedure to reverse a vasectomy also involves the reconnection of tubes to allow the flow of sperm. Depending on the method used to close the tubes, there is a 14 to 55 percent success rate in re-establishing fertility after a vasectomy.
