Dr. Zikria has been performing tubal ligation reversal procedures since 1980. Over the past 10 years, he’s made major modifications with the procedure to better improve its effectiveness and to allow it to be performed on an outpatient basis. You can feel confident that you’re in compassionate and capable hands at the office of Gul A. Zikria, MD.
Tubal ligation reversal is performed while you’re under general anesthesia. Dr. Zikria only needs to make a few small incisions. Using the laparoscope and carbon dioxide (CO2) laser, Dr. Zikria can reconnect your fallopian tubes, treat conditions that may impact your fertility (like endometriosis), and remove old scar tissue.
Once your tubal ligation reversal is complete, Dr. Zikria closes your incisions with surgical glue or dissolvable sutures. You’re released to go home shortly afterward, but you’re going to need to take it easy for several days during your recovery period. In most cases, you’re able to try to conceive again shortly after surgery.
