Jacksonville, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/28/2014 -- Being able to conceive again and have a baby after tubal ligation surgery is possible! Dr. Marwan Shaykh with the Assisted Fertility Program of Florida, South Georgia and Southwest Virginia is helping patients achieve their dreams of having another child by offering affordable and low cost tubal reversal surgery.
Having a tubal ligation surgery commonly known as having ones tubes tied is a procedure many people undergo to prevent future pregnancy. Many people have their tubes tied for various reasons and often regret the decision later on in life. They may have been in a tough relationship or felt pressured by their physician or family to have a tubal ligation. After having their tubes tied, many people’s situations change, they start a new relationship or they may have lost their child unexpectedly and wish to experience the joys of a baby again. Whatever the reason may be, tubal reversal surgery with the Assisted Fertility Program is helping more people to be able to conceive again.
Getting pregnant after the tubes have been cut, tied and burned is successful in most cases. Having the fallopian tubes reversed also known as tubal reanastomosis can be performed in the majority of cases whether a woman had a tubal ligation, coagulation and resection, pomeroy technique, tubal rings, clips or essure. Unfortunately, fimbriectomy procedures cannot be reversed.
The surgery is scheduled as an outpatient procedure, so there is no hospital stay required and patients go home that same day. Most patients can return to work 5-7 days after the surgery. A board certified anesthesiologist will administer general anesthesia and monitor the patient during the entire procedure. The repair of the tubes is performed using microsurgical techniques and local anesthesia is used during the procedure to minimize post-operative pain.
The first step in the tubal repair process is having a consultation with Dr. Shaykh who has over 36 years of experience with reproductive endocrinology and is board certified. The Assisted Fertility program has clinics in both Jacksonville, FL and Roanoke, VA however the program is also available to patients who live out of town. To help minimize travel expenses and disruption of patients busy work schedules, Skype and telephone appointments with the doctor are available for patients who cannot come to the office for a consultation. To further minimize travel costs to the patient, the program also provides some lodging accommodations at a facility close to the clinic and will reimburse a one night stay at a participating local hotel for patients traveling from out of town for their tubal reversal surgery.
Choosing the right physician for this surgery can be a stressful and overwhelming process and Dr. Marwan Shaykh and his caring staff are here to help in any way they can. Please visit the website at www.assistedfertility.org or call 1-800-777-IVF1 for more information.
