This is a very common question. The word “guarantee” always catches my eye. Doctors should never guarantee results; it is illegal in most states and always unethical. We guarantee to do our best and to be worthy of the trust you have put in us by selecting our surgical center for your reversal. Our reversals take between an hour to an hour and a half to do; we have had the occasional case that took more than three hours to finish. We never do more than three cases a day, so that if we have to take extra time to give you the best result we can.
We all are the same, but each person is different enough so that no one can tell if an operation will work. Ninety-seven percent of our patients leave our surgical center with two good tubes. Two percent of our patients leave with one tube because one is missing or so badly damaged that it cannot be repaired. Only one patient in a hundred cannot be fixed; it happens. There is no test that can tell for sure if it will work.
I have seen web sites that offer guarantee programs and they are always medical trickery. The usual theme involves raising the price and requiring you pay for tests that are prohibitively expensive before the guarantee will be honored. These facilities know that you will be unlikely to put good money after bad. The same goes for facilities that offer to do care for free but you have to pay for the labs or the other way around. These individuals are telling you something about themselves with these schemes.
We are a dedicated surgical center that does tubal reversals and only tubal reversals. We sew your tubes in layers from the inside out. We dye test your tubes to make sure they are properly repaired. We use an expensive anesthetic gas that lets you wake up quickly. The way we do tubal reversals is more expensive and takes more of our time; we feel that our way gives you more value for your investment.
