Blocked Fallopian Tubes
Many women cannot conceive naturally due to blocked fallopian tubes or tubal scarring. If a woman’s fallopian tubes are blocked, her egg will be prevented from traveling through her reproductive system to meet the man’s sperm. Likewise, the man’s sperm is prevented from reaching the woman’s egg due to the blockage or scarring in her fallopian tubes.
Blocked or scarred fallopian tubes are caused by:
- Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PIDs)
Average Cost of Blocked Fallopian Tubes Surgery
Corrective hysteroscopic tubal surgery in Dr. Hugh D. Melnick’s private, free-standing center – Advanced Fertility Services (AFS) – may cost up to $3,572. The cost of blocked fallopian tube treatment varies based upon the surgery’s complexity and time required of the doctor to detect the location of the blockage and perform the corrective treatment.
A hysteroscopy takes an average of 30 minutes and is performed in AFS’s operating room with the patient under anesthesia.
Blocked fallopian tube treatment at AFS is substantially less in cost compared to the fees charged at larger hospital programs or hospital-affiliated surgical centers. These providers have increased medical service fees due to high overhead expenses.
Hysteroscopic Blocked Fallopian Tubes Surgery
At Advanced Fertility Services – using a hysteroscope for corrective tubal surgery – Dr. Melnick may be able to catheterize your fallopian tubes either to confirm they are open or to attempt to open them if there is a blockage near the point where the tubes meets the uterus. This procedure is similar to the technique used by cardiologists to open blocked blood vessels in the heart.
Be proactive is determining whether you are unable to get pregnant because your fallopian tubes are blocked.
