Fertility Treatments & Services Reproductive Surgery

Sometimes fertility issues are due to anatomy—a person’s body structure—that may happen voluntarily such as a tubal ligation where a woman elects to have her “tubes tied” for contraception, or involuntary such developments of fibroids or polyps. Depending on each person’s situation and diagnosis, surgery may be recommended to rid of these physical barriers to achieving pregnancy and successful gestation. At CHA Fertility Center, some reproductive surgeries most often performed include:

  • Tubal Ligation Reversal (reanastomosis) – previously “tied” fallopian tubes are reconnected surgically to allow eggs to move through and sperm to travel up the fallopian tubes to meet for conception.
  • Myomectomy – this surgical procedure is performed to remove uterine fibroids (leiomyomas) in order to make the cervix and uterine environment more hospitable to fertilization, implantation and gestation. The length of the procedure and recovery time depends on the size and location of the growths and the doctor’s recommendation of type of surgery.
  • Polypectomy – similar to myomectomy, a uterine polypectomy is a surgical procedure that removes uterine polyps, which result from the overgrowth of cells in the uterine lining (endometrium). While it is unclear exactly why polyps affect infertility, their removal has been shown to significantly increase the chance of pregnancy.
