A Tuboplasty is done to open up a block or relieve some other malfunction in your fallopian tube. This could happen because of an infection, a congenital deformity. Often, the constriction allows the sperm to travel to the egg, but prevents the egg’s passage to the uterus, resulting in an ectopic (tube) pregnancy, which is quite dangerous. It is also performed to reopen your fallopian tubes reopened if you have previously had surgical sterilization.

What happens during the procedure?

Tuboplasty may be done via Laparoscopy or Laparotomy, depending on the location and extent of the block. Both methods are done under general anaesthesia.

A laparoscopic distal tuboplasty is a safe and effective alternative to microsurgery. During the procedure, our specialist is able to examine the reproductive tract and remove the blocks in the fallopian tubes, without affecting any of the other organs. The recommended hospital stay is 1 - 2 days and the recovery time is about 1 -2 weeks.

A laparotomy is done either through an open abdominal procedure, or with laparoscopy, during which the surgeon has direct access to all the structures of the pelvis. The delicate procedure demands specialised training, experience and a great deal of precisionas there is absolutely zero room for error. The recommended hospital Stay is 3 - 4 days and recovery time is about 4-6 weeks.

“Our patients at Srushti Fertility Centre have an advantage when it comes to these procedures, as evidenced by our success rates in them, as Dr.SamundiSankari was the former Chief of Microsurgery at Kilpauk Medical College and one of the pioneers of tubal surgery in India.” – Mr.Preshanthan, Managing Director.
