Question: Is it possible to have a reversal with a bicornate uterus?I am 35 years old.
Answer: Yes, it is possible to reverse a tubal when a patient has a bicornuate uterus.  
Question: I'm a 34 year old female. I had my tubes clamped during my c-section 5 years ago. I am remarried now and I would like my clamps removed so I could become pregnant. We were wondering if financing would be possible. We also would like to know what the procedure would cost.
Answer: Dear Kristi,   A tubal reversal is a little more involved than just removing the clamps.  The two pieces of tube need to be stitched back together during an operation that takes 2-3 hours.  Currently the total cost is approximately $9000 and requires an overnight stay in the hospital.  I am working on performing this procedure as an outpatient, which should lower the cost.   I am also planning to link with a medical credit company to provide financing.  These two changes should make tubal reversal more accessible to patients.
Question: Is there other options besides a tubal reversal and whats the price ranges?
Answer: Valerie,   The alternative to tubal reversal is In Vitro Fertilization or IVF.  Prices vary around the country from a low of around $6000 per cycle to $25,000 or more.  I hope this is helpful.
