At The Hospital
The Family Hospital is a beautiful, state of the art facility, located less than a mile south of the US-border entry in the city of Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico. While most hospitals are owned by a group of investors or a sole-proprietor, the Family Hospital is the only hospital in Mexico that is fully-owned and operated by the same medical professionals that can perform your surgery. The Family Hospital of Mexicali Mexico has been featured in The New York Times, French TV, Current TV, and China news. Approximately 60% of the patients in the hospital live in the U.S or are American, so they understand your unique needs as a traveling patient. Once you arrive at the Family Hospital of Mexicali Mexico for Tubal Reversal Surgery, you will be greeted by our friendly, English-speaking, patient coordinator who will check you into your room. Next, you will consult with your doctor and take a series of routine pre-operative exams. You are also required to pay for the surgery at this time.  

The next day is the surgery. A tubal reversal, also known as recanalization, is performed under general anesthesia and the surgery itself takes around two hours to complete. The surgeon uses a laparoscope, which is a thin, lighted, wire-like device with cutting and stitching abilities, to help access the surgical site through your belly button. Once the surgeon reaches the fallopian tubes, the surgeon makes a small, bikini-line incision to attach an instrument to the laparoscope which is used to remove any clips or rings and reconnects the ends of the fallopian tubes back to the uterus. Stiches will be small and quick-healing. After the surgery, you will spend the day in bed, watching television an enjoying the hospital’s complimentary Wifi. Your patient coordinator will check in on you throughout this process. 
The day after your surgery, you will be seen by your specialist and their assistants. They will evaluate your condition and clear you for discharge. Once you are discharged, one of our courteous driver will then take you across the border (or a hotel if you wish to stay an extra night). 

All surgeries carry some risks. Rarely, excessive bleeding, infection, damage to nearby organs, or poor reaction to anesthesia can occur. The Family Hospital is proud to say that since its founding in 2003, there have been no major complications with any tubal ligation reversal procedure outside of anesthesia reactions. Patient-focused doctors, impeccable standards for care, advanced technology, and wonderful support staff have made it possible for The Family Hospital to provide high quality care to international patients at affordable prices.

After Surgery
Your procedure was a success, there were no major complications, and you’re ready to go home. So, what’s next?
Once you arrive home you’ll need to take good care of yourself, get plenty of rest, and finish your recovery. Your doctor will have provided you with post-operative care instructions for you to follow. These instructions will include simple tasks like keeping your incision site clean, dry, and dressed. Your pain level will be minimal and manageable, but your doctor will prescribe medications to take with you.
A tubal surgery may delay your menstrual cycle. Intercourse will be painful for the first two to three weeks after your procedure, but after that you can resume normal sexual relations. Your surgeon will recommend that you wait four months before trying to get pregnant to ensure you are healed and healthy. Approximately 75% of patients go on to conceive! If you’re under 40 years old, the odds are even higher in your favor.
