WHY IS TUBOPLASTY PERFORMED?
Tuboplasty is a procedure which is performed to reverse blocked fallopian tubes. The Blockage are formed due to infections like PID (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease). Fallopian tubes are part of the female reproduction system; they are responsible for delivering the egg (ova) from ovaries to the uterus. Therefore, blockage in the fallopian tubes may lead to infertility and tuboplasty can increase chances of getting pregnant if infertility is caused due to fallopian blockage
