At Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center, we want to maximize the chances for pregnancy after tubal ligation reversal for all of our patients. One step that is helpful in planning for a tubal reversal procedure is examining the pathology report from a patient's medical record. When a tubal ligation and resection procedure has been performed, a segment of fallopian tube was removed and most likely sent to a pathologist. Therefore, a pathology report should exist in the patient's medical record. A pathology report will help our tubal reversal doctors determine exactly what was done during a ligation and resection procedure and what your chances of tubal reversal success will be.
