lisa_lettofsky_btn.jpg Lisa and Craig Lettofsky of Oak Hill West Virginia at lisalett@suddenlink.net had a Postpartum tubal ligation by Pomeroy technique on June 2, 1990. She was 22 years old. On February 6, 2006 at the age of not quite 38 she had a reversal. She had a total of 6 cm on each side.
After having my tubes tied at the age of 22 after the birth of my daughter, I was sure that my days of having babies were over. But 15 yrs later I remarried and suddenly longed to have a child with this man that I knew would be a wonderful father. I discussed the possibility of tubal reversal with my OBGYN and he referred me to a physician, who after a phone consultation, quoted me a price of $12,000. I was also told that because of the length of time that my tubes had been tied and possible scar tissue that the surgery would most likely not be succesful. My husband and I discussed finding a physician who would be a little more optimistic. So I started researching the internet and came upon Dr. Levin's web site. It had so much more information than the other sites I had seen. Dr. Levin's success rate was really impressive! And his price was half of what I was finding elsewhere and included so much more. I scheduled a phone consultation with Dr. Levin and found him to be very friendly and optimistic of my chances of having a successful surgery. So in February 2006 we traveled to KY to have the surgery. Everythng went well. For six months we tried to conceive and had no luck. Because of my age (38 yrs) I was becoming very frustrated and scared that having a child would not happen for us. I discussed this with Dr. Levin and he was very understanding and encouraging. Finally in August 2006 I had a positive pregnancy test.We were so excited, but after 7 weeks it turned out that I had an ectopic pregnancy. Dr. Levin had followed me for every one of those 7 weeks. He encouraged me and my husband to not give up. In January 2007 we found out that I was pregnant again. Needless to say we were scared that this would end in another ectopic pregnancy. Dr. Levin followed me through those first weeks by monitoring lab work and ultrasounds . I had an uneventful pregnancy and on October 4th, 2007 our daughter, Hannah Brooke, was born weighing 6 lbs and 11.6 oz.! She is such a blessing to our family. We feel so lucky to have found Dr. Levin and are so grateful for all that he did to make this miracle happen for us!

dd Catrese and Melvin Davis of Florissant Missouri at catldav611@yahoo.com had a laparoscopic tubal ligation on August 1, 1995 at the age of 28. At the age of 39 she had a successful reversal leaving her with 4 cm on her right side and 5 cm on the left side.
Dr Levin, I just wanted to let you know that my baby boy was born on June 28 at 12:57 am weighing 9lbs 2oz the largest baby I have ever had, and 22 inches long. He is a joy to Melvin and me we can not thank you enough. Also this year my husband was diagnose with Prostate Cancer which threw both of us for a turn, of course we did not expect this to happen to us, but who do. The Prostate was removed June 4 which was in my ninth month of pregnancy it was difficult for me, since I had to be the one to do all for him to make sure he heal well. It was a very hard task to do at that time, and still trying to be careful for myself, since this is a miracle baby that I was caring. Melvin is OK cancer is gone and little Melvin is doing just fine and so is the mother. Once again we can not thank you for the procedure you perform on me giving us a baby. I can honestly say that timing is everything, and I believe everything happens for a reason.
We thank you, Melvin & Catrese Davis

michelle_mullins_btn.jpg On April 12, 2004, Michelle Mullins of Mallory West Virginia at missymarie627@hotmail.com (age 30) came to Dr. Levin for a tubal ligation reversal. She was not able to obtain her records from her sterilization which had been done 11 years prior. Therefore her local doctor did a laparoscopy surgery in 2000. She had an ectopic pregnancy prior to the tubal ligation so part of the left tube had been removed. On the right tube, a falope ring had been placed. The reversal was a success and yielded 7cm on the right side and 4cm on the left.
Hey Dr. Levin how are you, This is Michelle Mullins from Man, WV. I am finally writing my testimonial, sorry it took me so long. I am unsure of the exact dates. My name is Michelle Mullins and I had a tubal reversal on April 12, 2004. My story is like many others. I was married had 2 wonderful children. I was 22 when I had my tubes tied and not long after that I got a divorce. When he divorced me he divorced the kids also. So i was on my own trying to raise 2 boys by myself. Then I met Eric, I immediatly fell in love with him and so did the kids. We decided to get married. He knew that i had the tubal and Asked me if I was willing to undo it. Of course I said yes. So I called the Dr. who tied them and he was very angry with me for wanting to undo his work. He told me that I would only have 1 good tube because he had tied and burnt the other one and that my chances of having another baby were very slim. He also told me that I needed a hysterectomy very soon. For him to perform the reversal it would cost 18000.00. So of course we were very discouraged and we thought it would never happen.. So we decided to pray about it and let God take control. He led us straight to Dr. Levin. We were still afraid to get excited because of everything that we were told. However, after talking to Dr. Levin it was very hard not to. He performed the reversal on BOTH tubes and Erik Matthew Mullins was born on August 10, 2006. He weighed 6lbs and 13oz. and had a head full of hair. Dr. Levin and Venecia were absolutely wonderful. I cannot thank him or his staff enough for making this family complete. Thank you

Hi Dr. Levin. I just wanted to let you know that I am now 22 weeks pregnant with a healthy boy! I can't thank you and Venica enough for making this possible.

heather_hall_btn.jpg Heather and Christopher Hall of Scottsdale, Arizona at hevans9846@yahoo.com was sterilized in 2000 using the Pomeroy method of sterilization with 2.0 cm removed. She came to Dr. Levin for reversal in 2007. Heather had a very unique situation. When Dr. Levin started surgery, he saw an odd appearing piece on the right tube. Knowing that it was not normal, he removed it and sent it for pathologic evaluation. It came back to be a ruptured ectopic pregnancy that the patient was not aware was even there!! Luckily Dr. Levin removed it and saved lots of other damage from occuring. Her went on to repair both tubes with a total of 3.0 cm on the right and 4.5 on the left.
Dear Dr Levin. We thank you from the bottom of our heart for our new little joy. After two years of thinking about having my tubal ligation and finally finding you and your wonderful staff we set the date for surgery on January 2007. It was a long four months to wait and after all the waiting I ended up with what was thought to be a large tumor in my tube on one side. After testing it we found out I was at least ten weeks pregnant with a tubal pregnancy. WOW! With your expertise you were still able to put me back together successfully. We were pregnant by June 2007. Four weeks early on February 14th, 2008 we were blessed with a son 6 lbs. 15 oz. ! Giado Christopher Hall, he is perfect, we couldn't of asked for more. He's allready packed on the pounds and is a healthy 14 1/2 lb two month old. Thank you so much for all you help.
