Permanent sterilization is currently the second most prevalent form of birth control used by American women. The most common method of permanent sterilization is laparoscopic tubal sterilization, a surgical procedure that closes the fallopian tubes preventing sperm from being able to fertilize the egg.
Your surgeon will carefully review the options for permanent contraceptive options with you to help find the best solution.
Fallopian tube sterilization procedures include the use of heat energy to seal the tubes, clips or bands to mechanically interrupt the tubes, or complete removal of the tubes, called salpingectomy.
For women who feel that these micro-inserts have created issues or health problems, our gynecologic surgeons offer surgical removal of the devices using laparoscopic surgery.
