Has anyone researched having a tubal reversal done with robotic assistance? 

"So the nice thing about robot assisted tubal reversal is that it allows you to have excellent 3-Dimensional view as well as really zooms into the fallopian tube which is tiny, almost like putting blood vessels back together again," he explains. 

The wrists on the robotic arms, which Dr. Montalto controls through a console, flex further than human hands, giving him even greater control over the delicate procedure. 

Here is a link to the complete article, along with a video at: http://www.wcsh6.com/news/health/article/206038/8/New-robot-assisted-surgery-reverses-tubal-ligation

It seems to have better success rates and even a bit less expensive according to this other article I read: http://www.myfoxatlanta.com/story/18246648/technology-can-reverse-tubes
