I wrote in 2006 when I was
pregnant and I checked back recently only to realize that I never
sent an update after I had my baby!
On Halloween of 2006 a little over one year after my tubal reversal
with Dr. Perez, I gave birth by C-section to my 3rd child. A baby
boy named Roman Kaiser Mills. We were so happy and thrilled to have
him, we didn't think our life could be any more complete!

On June 1st, 2008, we were shocked and overjoyed to find that we
were pregnant with our daughter! Journey Rose was born February of
the following year!

Having a family of four is so wonderful and we are now considering
adding a 5th to the fun!
Thank you Dr. Perez for all you've given us! I take time to go to
the message boards out there to help other women find out about Rio
Bravo reversals and quell their fears about having surgery done out
of the country. I am so thankful for mine, words just can't express!
Blessings in bunches to Dr. Perez and his whole team!
Hi everyone! My name is Brandy, and I had my tubes tied in 1998.
Last year, we decided we wanted a larger family, and began doing
research for a doctor to do a tubal reversal. After over 6 months of
research, we decided to go with Rio Bravo Reversals. Boy am I glad
Many of my friends and relatives, and even my doctor here in the
states questioned my decision to go to Mexico to have my surgery
done. I think many people think that the quality of care is not as
good, but that is not true with Dr. Perez! I made my decision to
choose Rio Bravo Reversals because I had heard so many good things
from hundreds of people in chat rooms, message boards, and by
e-mail. I felt very certain that I was making the best choice.
The surgery went very smoothly. I believe I only had one tube,
but Dr. Levi assured me that I could still get pregnant. At first, I
didn't really believe him, after all, I've never been a very lucky
person anyway, and I knew that the operation wasn't guaranteed.
In fact, I only wanted the OPPORTUNITY to be able to get pregnant. I
was so certain that it was more likely that I wouldn't get pregnant,
that when I first started having morning sickness it didn't even
occur to me that I might be pregnant.
Sure enough though, I had my surgery in October and was pregnant by
February! I was so paranoid at first, because I thought I might have
a miscarriage or something, but I am now 7 months pregnant, and my
doctor has said that everything is just peachy!
It was funny, though, before my
pregnancy, my doctor kept telling me how "rare" it is for a woman to
get pregnant after a tubal reversal. His office performs the surgery
and they only have about a 15-20% success rate, so even when my
pregnancy test came back positive, he sat me down and told me that
there were many things that could produce a false positive on a
pregnancy test. He was just SO sure I wasn't pregnant! He wasn't
fully convinced until the first ultrasound, and then he was just
SHOCKED! It surprised him that doctors in Mexico had 2-3 times the
success rate that doctors in the U.S. are having performing this
Anyone who is considering a reversal should give SERIOUS thought to
Dr. Perez & Levi! The trip to Mexico does require some
flexibility, and it is very helpful to know Spanish (although I
didn't and I did just fine!) but considering the high success rate
and the difference in cost, it is well worth putting Rio
Bravo Reversals at the top of your list for a tubal reversal.
We are so thankful for baby on the
way. Blessings to everyone on their own journeys!
