Dr. Donald P Snyder's first priority is to do what is best for his patients and in most cases, he favors Essure compared to tubal ligation. Though there are circumstances when traditional tubal ligation is preferred, he has concluded that Essure vs. tubal ligation, is a superior permanent birth control method because the likelihood of failure, pain associated with the procedure, and recovery time are all less with Essure as compared to traditional tubal ligation. Also Essure is generally less expensive than tubal ligation.


Essure involves blocking the fallopian tubes permanently without general anesthesia or any incisions. The Essure procedure is also performed in the comfort of Dr. Snyder's private office. Dr. Snyder employs the aid of a special scope called a hysteroscope which is placed through the cervix. The Essure "micro-inserts" are placed into her tubes during a 15-20 minute procedure. Typically, the patient returns to her usual Essure micro insert routine that very day, with no downtime from her busy life. For the next three months, after the Essure procedure, an alternative reliable birth control method must be used and then she returns for a follow-up exam. Dr Snyder performs an "Essure Confirmation Test", to confirm that the procedure is a success. After that, the patient may rely on Essure forever for birth control. Though tubal sterilization using Essure is absolutely nonreversible even with tubal surgery; it is also the most effective form of birth control for women. Essure has less than 1 failure per 1000 procedures.

Tubal Ligation

There are situations when tubal ligation, utilizing the traditional methods, may be recommended as the best option by Dr. Snyder. For example, there may be problems to be evaluated such as pelvic pain. Since these situations require a procedure tubal ligation diagram that uses a laparoscope, tubal ligation will be the best option. However, tubal ligation surgery is more invasive because the abdominal cavity is entered in order to access the tubes. Though it does not ever involve actually tying a knot in the tubes, suture material is used to tie off the tubes in some procedures (hence the term "tying the tubes"), while cauterizing (or burning) the tubes or placing metal clips on the tubes to block them are other methods commonly used. No matter how the tubes are blocked, an incision into the body is required. Therefore anesthesia is required and a scar will result. It takes several days to recover from tubal ligation, there are more risks of injury from the procedure than with Essure, and tubal ligation can fail 1 time in every 100 to 200 procedures. On a positive note, tubal ligation is immediately effective.
