Case Facts: On September 15, 1997 Danielle have a Pomeroy tubal ligation (with an extra "silk sperm hurdle" placed closer to the uterus. The pathology report showed 2.7 cm removed from the left and 2.5 cm removed from the right side. On March 14, 2005, with Danielle at the age of 30, Dr. Richard Levin performed a bilateral microsurgical tubal anastomosis with resulting tube lengths of 3.0 cm on the left and 4.0 cm on the right. At only 3.0 cm, the left tube was shorter than Dr. Levin would have liked but he performed a "PERFECT" repair of that tube. History would show just how perfect the repair was!
Please enjoy Danielle and Mauricio's story in Danielle's own words . . .

My story is probably like a lot others, I married young and had both my children young. I had my tubes tied when I was 21! I just couldn't imagine bringing another child into my failing marriage. So I divorced when I was 22 and vowed never to get married again. But my life changed a year later when I met the love of my life, Mauricio. We meet in 1998 at work. We started hanging out and eventually we got married.
He knew that I couldn't have children, and he still decided he wanted to be with me. Well I knew that I couldn't just let the wonderful loving man not have a child, so that is when I started doing research online. I came across a lot of doctors, some who did the operation for less and some who were way more money, but the reason I chose Dr. Levin is because I sent a message to him and he called me the same day! We talked and he said he would be able to help me. Well that was in 2004.
A year later we finally had our finances together and I called a scheduled my operation. In March of 2005 my husband and I drove to Kentucky from Colorado, a long trip but well worth it. After my operation Dr. Levin informed me that my doctor had not left me with a lot of tube. I was only left with 3cm on the left side and 4cm on the right side. He said I still had about a 70% chance of conceiving. Well personally I was devastated. I know Dr. Levin did what he could but I didn't think my tubes would be long enough.
Well after 7 months of trying I gave up! I accepted the fact I couldn't get pregnant, and 2 months later, the day after Thanksgiving I got my first positive pregnancy test. I was stunned to say the least. Well 9 months later Abigail Berenice came into our lives and they will never be the same again. She is such a beautiful baby and looks so much like her daddy. Just to be able to see the love in my husbands eyes when he looks a his daughter is priceless.
Dr. Levin truly is a miracle worker. Thank you all for the bottom of my heart
