Tubal Ligation Houston Abortion Clinic
Tubal Ligation Procedure Houston - Houston Abortion Clinic
For women requesting permanent sterilization we offer tubal ligation. Tubal ligation is performed under general anesthesia and takes less than 30 minutes to perform. The surgeon makes a small incision below the navel and inserts a laparoscope, which is a small telescope-like instrument, so that the fallopian tubes can be visualized. An instrument is used to burn the fallopian tubes creating a permanent blockage of the tubes. Most women stay home from work the next day and are asked to avoid heavy lifting and exercise for 2 weeks. While most physicians make multiple incisions or a single incision below the belly button, at Aarons Women's Clinic, we make a single transumbilical incision. Because the incision is within the belly button, there is no visible scar after the procedure.
This procedure is offered to women who are 100% certain that they do not want to become pregnant in the future. If you are considering tubal ligation, please call our office so that you can make an appointment to meet with the surgeon and discuss the procedure.
