Reproductive surgery can be performed to increase the chances of a successful pregnancy. Such surgeries include, but are not limited to, removal of fibroids, polyps, and scar tissue that involve the endometrial cavity; removing endometriosis and scar tissue in the pelvic cavity; and microscopically reconnecting fallopian tubes after the occurrence of a tubal ligation.
This minimally invasive, outpatient surgery involves a laparoscope (a narrow instrument with a camera lens) being inserted into the pelvic cavity so that diagnosis and/or treatment of fertility problems can occur.
Hysteroscopy is a minimally invasive, outpatient surgery that involves vaginally inserting a long narrow camera. It does not involve an incision. Polyps, fibroids, and uterine cavity scar tissue can be easily and safely removed through the hysteroscope.
Myomectomy is a surgical procedure in which uterine fibroids are removed from the uterus. Fibroids only require removal if they are causing pain, pressure, or bleeding problems. Fibroids that involve the uterine cavity and not just the uterine musculature are recommended to be removed if future fertility is desired.
Tubal reanastomosis surgery involves microscopically reconnecting the fallopian tubes after they have been ligated. Women are hospitalized on average for 1 day. One or two of the fallopian tubes can be successfully reconnected over 90% of the time. Subsequent monthly pregnancy rates depend on the age of the woman. Ectopic pregnancy rate following tubal reanastomosis is approximately 4-10% of pregnancies.
