donna_thompson_btn.jpg Donna Thompson (h=Brandon Thompson) of Sacramento, California danawei30s@yahoo.com In 2001, Donna Thompson was sterilized using a Falope Ring. She came to Dr. Levin in 2006 to have this sterilization reversed. She had a great outcome with 7.0 cm of tube on each side!
 
My name is Donna Thompson and like a lot of couples out there my first marriage ended in divorce. I had three children from my first marriage and I didn't think that I wanted to have anymore children, so I had my tubes tied. A year later after my divorce I met this wonderful men that changed my life for the better. He didn't have any children of his own so I looked into having a reversal done. So I did some research and decided to see Dr. Levin. I told my self that he is the one who's going to make this miracle happen for us. My surgery went without a hitch and four months later I conceived. I was so thrilled when I found out that we are expecting a baby. My husband was on cloud nine and so was I. Nine months later I gave birth to a wonderful baby girl. She was 6 lbs. 14 oz. and 19 inches long and her name is Violet Ruby Thompson. She is the most beautiful baby ever. Thank you to Dr. Levin for making this miracle happen for my husband and I. Here are some pictures of her. I highly recommend for any one out there to see Dr. Levin if you are considering having a reversal done. I wish you all the best and you can trust Dr. Levin to make this happen for you too.
 
Sincerely, Donna and Brandon Thompson
michelle_moody_btn.jpg Michelle Moody (h=Jeff Moody) of Lafayette,Indiana at j.m.moody@insightbb.com had a Pomeroy sterilization performed at age 22. There had been 1.4cm and 1.2cm of tube removed. She came to Dr. Levin for a tubal reversal on February 23, 2006. The surgery went great and she was left with a long 9cm on each side! She was 35 years old at the time of the reversal surgery.
 
At the age of 23 during the birth of my 3rd daughter, I requested a tubal ligation. I knew at the time that it was the best choice for me. I never thought that I would ever re-marry or decide to have another child. In February of 1995 I began dating my now husband. I was very up front that my tubes were tied. After several years I expressed to him that if he ever decided that he would like to have a child of his own I would have them reversed. We talked every now and then about having a child together. We married in July of 2000 and after recovering from a rough period in our relationship, became closer than ever. Jeff and I decided to investigate how to go about having my tubes reversed. We researched both locally and on the internet for doctors and their procedures and found Dr. Levin. I spoke to Dr. Levin in October of 2005 and scheduled my surgery for February 23rd, 2006. My husband and I went to Mexico for our anniversary in July 2006 to try and conceive. 3 weeks later we learned that I was in fact pregnant.
 
On March 26th, 2007 only 13 months after my reversal surgery, our daughter Emilie Jordan Moody was born. I can't express enough how miraculous this journey has been and to be blessed with a healthy and happy baby. Thank you so much Dr. Levin for giving us the chance to create a little miracle.

rebekah_green_btn.jpg Rebekah Greene(h=Matt Greene) of Dayton Ohio at meems1818@yahoo.com had a Pomeroy sterilization with 1.5cm removed from each tube. She was 26 at the time of her tubal ligation. On November 6, 2006, the tubal reversal surgery yielded a whopping 10cm on the right nad 8cm on the left which restored her fertility age the age of 30.
 
I, like many women became a mother and wife for the first time at the young age of 19. After eight years and four children, it was clear that the marriage would not last. I had a tubal ligation after the birth of my fourth child. My second husband and I talked from the beginning of our relationship about the fact that I could not have any more children. Two years into our relationship, we began to explore options. I talked to my ob-gyn and was not pleased with the answers he gave me. He had said that the success rates from the surgeries that he had performed were slim. I searched the Internet and came across Dr. Levin's website. The testimonials were reassuring and the success rate made me feel optimistic. I started the process and immediately felt hopeful after talking to Dr. Levin and his staff. I was glad to know that I only had to travel to Louisville (from Ohio) although I would have traveled farther.
 
I had my reversal surgery on November 6, 2006. My first cycle was on November 12, and I got pregnant on that cycle! I was due to deliver on August 19, 2007 and that is exactly what I did! Rahni Marie Greene was born on August 19, 2007 at 11:55 a.m. My husband and I could not be happier with the results that were only possible with the help of Dr. Levin.
 
Thank you again Dr. Levin. Rebekah and Matt Greene
lisa_rifle_btn.jpg Lisa Riffle (h=Tim Minshall) of Circleville, Ohio at lisariffle@yahoo.com had a falope ring sterilization performed in 2004 at the age of 28. Her tubal reversal surgery was performed by Dr. Levin on March 29, 2007. Lisa was 31 years old at the time. She had some scarring in her pelvis which Dr. Levin was able to remove at the time of the reversal. She was left with 6.0cm on the right and 5.5cm on the left.
 
I just wanted to share my success story with you, and did not know how else to contact you. Thank you Thank you if anyone ever has second thoughts about going threw with the procedure don't. It was a wonderful blessing for me and my boyfriend. We had the procedure March 29, 2007 and i have to say the day after I was in alot of discomfort and wondered if i had made the right choice. But two days later i felt much better. I found out i was pregnant in June of 2007 and we announced to our family on the fourth of July. I think everyone was surprised and could not believe it actually worked. The first ultrasound was fantastic and my OB asked me who had done my work. I gladly mentioned your name. We introduced our daughter Audrey Mae Minshall to the world on March 3, 2008. She was born with her eyes wide open ready to greet the world. Many say that means she is an old soul, I guess this must mean she was meant to be in our world. It was the most fantastic pregnancy and delivery. I have sense given your name to several of my friends and even women who work at the OB office. This little girl has finally brought the bright light to our lives that I believe had been missing.
 
Thanks Again your really are a miracle worker. Lisa Riffle and Tim Minshall
shelia_meeks_btn.jpg At the age of 22, Sheila Meeks(h=Brian Meeks) of Sturgis, Kentucky meeks_cheeks@yahoo.com was sterilized. Her records were not available to her since it had been 12 years since her ligation. She thought that she might have had a Pomeroy but she was unsure. So on April 10, 2006, Dr. Levin went into the tubal reversal surgery “blindly”- not knowing exactly what type of ligation she had performed. The outcome was good leaving Sheila with 8cm on the right and 6cm on the left.
 
Also sorry it took me so long but instead of one miracle we got two babies 17 month's apart. I was married young my first time and we had four girls together. I had my last daughter then Dec.23,1994 and my tubal the same day.I was 22 years old.When I was 29 their dad died in a bad car wreck. My husband now we have known each other since we were teenagers. We started talking and ended up together. I thank God we did. We were married march 2005. He also had a daughter from his first marriage .We talked about having kids together. Then we got on the computer and found you. We got all the information and got the money for the surgery because w did not want to wait. I had my surgery April 2006 and found we found out in June 2006 we were having our first baby. Brooklyn Rebekah was born Febuary 26,2007. She was 7lbs. and was 20 in. long. Then in Nov.2007 we found out we were having our second baby. Chloe Danielle was born July 28,2008 and she was 8 lbs.8ozs. and was 20 in long. We are both so happy!
 
Thank you so much for everything. God Bless you. With All Our Love and Thanks, Brian And Shelia and family
jaime_lincoln_btn.jpg Jaime Lincoln (h=Christopher Lincoln) of New Salisbury, Indiana jaimelincoln@insightbb.com had a Pomeroy sterilization performed on 04/10/2003 at the age of 26. Her doctor removed 2.0 cm from each of her fallopian tubes. At 30 years old, she decided to have the tubal reversal with Dr. Levin on 10/25/2006 to restore her fertility. She had a great surgery with 5.0 cm on the right and 6.0 cm on the left.
 
My husband, Chris and I wanted to have a child of our own but I had three children from a previous marriage and had my tubes tied. We began weighing our options between tubal reversal and IVF both were very expensive and we did not know how we were going to make our dream of having a child that was part of both of us until one day I Googled “tubal reversal” and came across Dr. Levin's site. I will admit I was skeptical at first because the price was half what I was quoted by my OB/GYN (at the time) I did some checking on Dr. Levin and found out that he truly was what he claimed to be. I set up the appointment to meet with Dr. Levin. I had my surgery October 25,2006 and delivered the fourth joy of my life and the first joy of my husband's life on September 10,2007. We were overjoyed and so thankful! I thought that all hope was lost until I met with Dr. Levin and saw what a kind and wonderful man he is. I have my Isabel Liberty to hold because of the wonderful ability that GOD has graced Dr. Levin with.
 
Thank you Dr. Levin! Jaime and Christopher Lincoln
sheri_towers_btn.jpg On June 07, 1996, Sheri Towers (h=Paul Dietrich) of Peterborough Ontario Canada sheritowers@bellnet.ca had a Hulka Clip sterilization performed.

Her reversal left her with 7cm of good, healthy tube on each side.
 
Good Morning Dr. Levin. Just a quick note to let you know that our beautiful and healthy baby girl arrived on September 14th. Our lives have been forever enriched - thank you. An e-mail could never sufficiently express our gratitude for everything that you did for us just 14 months ago.
 
Yours truly, Paul, Sheri, and baby Heidi from Toronto, Canada
lisa_billings_btn.jpg Lisa Billings (h=Robert Pastovic) of Baltimore, Maryland at BNL4056@comcast.net came to us in 2005 seeking a tubal reversal surgery at the age of 38. Her records had been destroyed by the hospital since it had been over 10 years since her tubal ligation. On 01/27/2005, Dr. Levin did the tubal reversal and found that she had been sterilized using Hulka Clips. She was left with 8.5cm on the right and 7.0cm on the left.
 
I am now a 41 year old woman with a 17 year old and a 7 week old. I had my tubes tied in 1994 because I knew I never wanted anymore children. Or so I thought. I found Dr. Levins website in November of '04 after a failed IVF attempt. The doctor said to try again but the cost was just too much. We made all the arrangements and went to Kentucky in January of '05. It could not have gone better. Everything was just as they said it would be. Dr. Levin and his staff were wonderful. We came home and in April I was pregnant. Unfortunately I miscarried in July at 13 weeks. It was devastating but two months later we started trying again. In the next year I became pregnant two more times both resulting in blighted ovums. By now it was heartbreaking. I was getting older but I never lost hope. Then in October of '06 I became pregnant once more. #4 for Dr. Levin, and after nine months of constant worrying if everything was going to be alright.....Zachary Thomas Billings ! Pastovi c was born on July 11,2007 8lb 5oz. I can't begin to thank Dr. Levin for what he has done for us. Along with my first son this baby is the greatest joy of my life. Again I can't say thank you enough.
 
Sincerely yours, Lisa Billings

julawon_kwoczka_btn.jpg Julawon Kwoczka (h=Todd Kwoczka) of Gilbert Arizona at julawon_kwoczka@yahoo.com had two Hulka Clips applied to her fallopian tubes in 2000. She was 24 years old at that time. At age 27, she got her tubal ligation reversed on 8/17/2006. She had a good reversal which resulted in 9.0cm on the right and 7.0cm on the left.
 
My story begins as most of yours all do...I was married young and at 23 decided to have my tubes tied with the intentions of never having more children...my first marriage went south and I met my current husband when I was 25 and still at that point we both did not want anymore children he was 8 years older than me and together we had 3 kids already. Well as I seemed to quickly approach 30 I had an overwhelming desire to have just one more baby...we researched over two years not knowing if a reversal was even an option I found Dr Levin who was a blessing and had my phone consult with him in March 2005 and he was pretty reassuring and positive I was a good candidate for the procedure over a year later we scheduled the surgery for August 16 2006... I had hit 30 and knew it was time!!
 
After the surgery Dr Levin gave me what I took as depressing news telling me the complications of the surgery as far as my reversal it was not an “easy fix” as I had hoped but he was still positive and reassured me that he would be here to help. He said the doctor who performed the tubal ligation kind of went over board with two hulka clips and damaged a lot of tissue and that my tubes were actually only half the size in diameter of normal tubes so with this info he told my husband and I to wait 6 weeks to heal completely before even trying to conceive...well in the mean time we were in the middle of work transfer from Indiana to Arizona so I actually waited almost 8 weeks before trying!
 
We started trying the end of October 2006 found out I was pregnant the beginning of November 2006 and then 1 week later found out it was twins!! My boys Conner Joseph and Tanner Ray were born 8 weeks early on May 20 2007 and are happy and healthy! Words can not express how grateful we are to Dr Levin and his staff they were great from the beginning to the end and our babies are proof that they are Angels who roam the earth disquised as those who are Doctors!
