A New Option
Women have long had their Fallopian tubes tied for birth control, but new research co-authored by Master Surgeon Dr. Greg Marchand shows that having them removed is a safe and effective alternative. He is coauthor of a 2020 study in The American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology on the merits of salpingectomy (surgical removal of a Fallopian tube) vs. tubal ligation. The study, a systematic review and meta-analysis, found few differences between the procedures, with no differences in most important clinical outcomes (antimüllerian hormone, blood loss, length of hospital stay, pre- or postoperative complications, or wound infections). He is the director of the Marchand Institute for Minimally Invasive Surgery and was recently honored with a World Record for performing a total laparoscopic hysterectomy through the smallest incision ever.
