Problems with the fallopian tubes, uterus or cervix require immediate attention.  After diagnosing the problem by using hysteroscopy ( a close visual examination of the uterus) or imaging procedures including ultrasound (the use of sound waves to see the ovaries and uterus) and hysterosalpingogram (HSG, an x-ray technique which uses dye injected into the uterus to see if it is normal and if the tubes are open), fertility specialists may perform a laparoscopy (minimally invasive surgery) to correct the anatomic problems, or robotic surgery for more complex cases.  For more information on robotic surgery or tubal reversal, please to go our website at
