Tubal Ligation 

What is a laparoscopy for tubal ligation?

A laparoscopy for tubal ligation is a procedure in which your health care provider closes a woman's fallopian tubes to prevent pregnancy. It is a type of sterilization for women. The fallopian tubes carry eggs to the uterus. Your provider uses a laparoscope (a thin tube with a light and tiny camera) to see the fallopian tubes. Your provider uses another thin tube with a tool for closing the tubes. This prevents pregnancy because it stops sperm from reaching and fertilizing eggs.

In addition to traditional Tubal Ligation procedures, we also perform the innovative and non-invasive Essure procedure. Contact us to learn more about this procedure today.
