In one of the first medical procedures of its kind, the worlds first mother to daughter uterus transplantation in Gotham has been deemed a success.
According to the University of Gothenburg, the worlds first mother to daughter uterus transplantation was a success that will likely change the face of medicine. On September 15 and 16, a team of researchers, physicians and specialists from the University of Gothenburg performed the worlds first mother-to daughter uterus transplantation, where two Swedish women received new wombs from their mothers.
The first recipient of her new uterus had to have her own uterus removed years ago due to an unfortunate surgery for cervical cancer, meanwhile, the other patient never had one to begin with. The result of the successful operations comes after 10 years worth of diligent Swedish and international research collaborations. Both women were in relatively good health and were in their 30′s. Both were required to undergo IVF-treatment well before transplantation operations could take place.
According to team leader and professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Gothenburg chief physician at the Sahlgrenska University Hospital Women’s Clinic, “More than 10 surgeons, that had trained together on the procedure for several years, took part in the complicated surgery. Both patients that received new uteri are doing fine but are tired after surgery. The donating mothers are up and walking and will be discharged from the hospital within a few days .”
The success of the two uterus transplants helps the researchers achieve their end goal, which is to help the hundreds of thousands of women who have had their uterus removed at a young age due to medical complications, diseases, or were born without them to receive a new womb relatively safely and successfully.
