How Much Does Fallopian Tube Blockage Treatment Cost?

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)At Advanced Fertility Services, we are committed to reducing the financial burden placed upon those who are suffering from infertility due to fallopian tube blockage. The cost of fallopian tube blockage treatment averages between $8,000 and $10,000 – depending on the required time of the surgeon. The cost at Advanced Fertility Services is well below that of other fertility centers. When insurance coverage for the cost of fallopian tube blockage treatment is not available, patients can receive affordable financing through Enhance Patient Financing.

Fallopian Tube Blockage

Fallopian tubes will become blocked due to:

  • Endometriosis
  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)

Fallopian tube blockage is a prevalent cause of a woman’s inability to get pregnant. Blockage makes conception is unlikely because the woman’s egg is prevented from traveling through her fallopian tubes in order to meet the man’s sperm. Likewise, the man’s sperm is prevented from reaching the woman’s egg due to the blockage.

Should the egg and sperm manage to meet, the fertilized egg may not be able to travel back through the fallopian tube and into the uterus for implantation. In this case, the fertilized egg may implant in the woman’s fallopian tube, resulting in an ectopic pregnancy – tubal pregnancy – that can cause permanent damage.

Corrective Reproductive Surgery for Fallopian Tube Blockage

Laparoscopy is a corrective reproductive surgical procedure allowing your fertility doctor to view the fallopian tubes for abnormalities interfering with conception. A laparoscope is a thin fiber optic telescope inserted through a small incision in the belly button. If abnormalities are discovered, surgical instruments are inserted through additional tiny incisions at the pubic hair line to remove the blockage. A laparoscopy is performed using general anesthesia.

A hysteroscopy is another surgical procedure used to catheterize your fallopian tubes either to confirm that 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.
