Q: Can you remove the baby from tube and place it in the uterus

Symptoms:  Morning sickness, tired, sore beast
Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query,

Unfortunately it is not possible that in a case of ectopic pregnancy, the pregnancy can be removed completely and then re-implanted into the uterus. The reason is that the placental cytotrophoblastic invasion into the tube cannot be separated which is the blood supply of the foetus and hence even a small insult with blood supply, at that early in gestation is fatal for the developing embryo. So its more hypothetical than practical.

I hope I have answered your query in detail,
Regards
