Q&A: Is it possible to have a tubal ligation reversal with a bicornuate uterus?

Ask A Doctor Question: 

Is it possible to have a reversal with a bicornate uterus?I am 35 years old.


Laura Smith, MD -

Yes, it is possible.   In order to determine whether you are a candidate for the procedure or not, follow all the steps and download all the forms from the getting started link on our website.  Once we receive the registration form, questionnaire, male and female medical release, operative report and pathology report if applicable, I will have a physician review.  Once I receive the information back from the physician, I will then contact you and let you know whether you are a candidate or not. If you are, then we will set up a phone consultation to go into a further medical history, discuss the surgery and alternatives, and whether testing is recommended or not prior to surgery.

The total cost of the surgery is $5926.  We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, cash or check.  This fee includes the physician, anesthesiologist, and facility.  The balance in full is due two weeks prior to the surgery date, not the consultation date.

Please let me know if you have further questions.

Yes it is possible and no different than any other tubal reversal.  However, the risks of pregnancy are the same as they were before the tubes were tied.
