Conditions We Treat: Tubal Disease

Tubal disease is one of the most common causes of female infertility and refers to any process or condition that leads to damage of the fallopian tubes.

Tubal Disease Treatment: Why Choose Johns Hopkins

  • The fertility experts at the Johns Hopkins Fertility Center have specialty training in minimally invasive surgical techniques including laparoscopy. Most patients who receive this treatment are discharged home on the same day of surgery.
  • After treatment for tubal disease, we will draw on our extensive experience with the management of tubal disease to create a tailored treatment program to help you achieve pregnancy.
  • If more specialized care is needed, you will have access to the many subspecialties of the renowned Johns Hopkins medical system.

Tubal Disease Treatment: What to Expect

At your initial consultation, you will meet with a fertility specialist and discuss your personal health history, experience attempting to conceive and goals for fertility treatment. We will perform diagnostic tests to determine the extent tubal disease is affecting your fertility  and rule out any other potential causes.

If you are diagnosed with tubal disease, we will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan to help you realize your fertility goals. Treatment can include removal of pelvic adhesions (scar tissue) and cysts with minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopy) or in very complex cases, traditional open surgery (laparotomy). In some cases, in vitro fertilization (IVF) will be also be recommended.
