Surgery for blocked or damaged fallopian tubes
Some couples choose to pursue surgery to repair tubal abnormalities or to reverse a tubal ligation. Attempts to conceive after extensive surgery are successful in approximately 30 percent of cases. Oftentimes, reconstructive surgery is covered under insurance, while IVF is not.
A successful outcome of fallopian tube reconstruction surgery depends on many factors, including the severity of the damage, maternal age and the length and location of the tube to be restored.
Talk with Dr. Rispler about the best approach to protect fertility when a diagnosis involves tubal abnormalities.
Dr. Rispler may recommend IVF rather than reconstructive surgery to increase the chances of a successful pregnancy.
For couples presenting with tubal abnormalities, statistics show that in-vitro fertilization (IVF) may be the best option for achieving a successful pregnancy.
Essentially, IVF eliminates the stages of conception that take place in the fallopian tube.
With IVF, eggs, removed surgically from the ovaries, and sperm are combined in the lab for fertilization. Dr. Rispler transfers the resulting embryo(s) directly to a woman’s uterus.
A fertility workup at Innovative Fertility Center will confirm whether tubal abnormalities exist. Dr. Rispler will present several treatment options along with corresponding success rates.
