Case Facts: In 1989, Libby had a left tubal ectopic pregnancy (prior to having kids, tubal, etc.). Just one of those bad luck things! She then had her two children without any difficulty and went on to have a tubal ligation done on her one remaining tube, on the right side. Libby later remarried and wanted to have children with her new husband Michael, so she came to Dr. Levin for a tubal ligation reversal. Dr. Levin suggested that Libby also have the left ovary removed to force her to always ovulate on the right side, where she would have the repaired tube. On March 8, 2001, Dr. Levin performed a right microsurgical tubal ligation reversal using his operating microscope. He also removed the left ovary. Her right tube was 6.5 cm long. By April of 2003, Libby was pregnant.
Please enjoy Libby's story in her own words below . . .

My tubes were tied when I was 25 thinking I wouldn't want any more children and that my marriage was secure! After ten years of marriage and two beautiful children sadly my marriage ended! Later I met a wonderful man, Michael, and remarried! Michael knew my tubes were tied and knew that we would never be able to have children together and he was content with that! But I wanted so desperately to give him a child because he had no biological children of his own! After being married for three years I ran into an old friend from High school who happened to be pregnant. I knew her tubes had been tied several years before and was curious! She told me about Dr. Richard Levin and his wonderful success! I was intrigued and excited to say the least! She gave me his contact information and I called! He gave me his web-site address and I read through it all and was even more excited! I began to check out other Doctors to see if Dr. Levin was indeed the best Doctor in this particular field and I was assured after doing a thorough search! I began the process and had the surgery! Dr. Levin and his staff were extremely kind and helpful! If I had questions he answered my emails or phone calls personally! A Doctor who is as busy as Dr. Levin who answers phone calls personally has to have his patients best interest at heart!
My story is quiet the miracle. Before the birth of my first child, 13 years ago, I had an ectopic pregnancy in which I lost one tube! I was blessed to have gone on and have the two children that I already had! Well after my tubal reversal I knew it would take me much longer than anyone having both tubes! It took two years after my surgery but it was well worth the wait! Michael Dean Baldwin Jr. was born on November 19, 2003 weighing 8 pounds 1 oz! If I, having only one tube, can have success then anyone can! Our baby has brought such joy to not only his proud Mom and Dad but to my other children as well! I look at my beautiful little boy and think what a tragedy it would have been to have never had the surgery... we would have missed out on so much! With every smile and coo I thank God for my miracle baby and the Doctor who made it all possible!
I think Dr. Levin is a God-send! He and his staff are miracle workers! I advise anyone seeking a Tubal Reversal to contact Dr. Richard Levin. He will not only give you the best of care but will do it with love and kindness! God Bless you Dr. Richard Levin!
