Tubal reversal is an excellent option for those patients who underwent tubal ligation as a method of contraception and decided to have another child. Laparotomy was the standard procedure for several years to perform tubal reversal. With the new technology using da Vinci Robotic laparoscopic method, the procedure has become minimally invasive and more precise. The System allows the surgeon’s hand movements to be scaled, filtered and translated into precise movements of micro-instruments within the operative site.
What is Tubal Sterilization Reversal
A tubal sterilization reversal – also known as tubal ligation reversal, tubal reanastomosis or, more simply, tubal reversal – is a surgical procedure to restore a woman’s fertility after she has had her “tubes tied” (tubal ligation). During a tubal ligation, a surgeon severs both fallopian tubes and then seals the segment openings by cauterizing, clamping or banding them shut. To reverse this procedure, the surgeon opens the blocked end of each tube segment and then reconnects the separated segments.
What is Robotic Tubal Sterilization Reversal
Robotic tubal sterilization reversal uses a combination of high-definition 3D magnification, robotic technology and miniature instruments to enhance a reproductive surgeon’s skills when reconstructing a woman’s fallopian tube.
What are the benefits of Robotic Tubal Sterilization Reversal
Robotic surgery’s miniaturization, increased range of motion, enhanced vision and mechanical precision offer significant benefits for our reproductive surgery patients, including:
- Less blood loss
- Less post-surgical pain/less medication
- Quicker recovery and return to normal activities
- Less scarring
- Less likelihood of complications
