First uterus transplant patient’s womb functioning efficiently, say doctors

After the eight days of first uterus transplant the condition of both the patients is normal. The Doppler test of the patients has shown the normal blood flow.

Dr Shailesh Puntambekar, Director of Galaxy Care Hospital, said, “Both the patients are normal and they are taking regular diet. Also, the Doppler test has shown normal blood supply.”

When My Medical Mantra spoke with the patient’s relatives they also confirmed the normal blood supply. Husband of the lady from Vadodara, said, “My wife is normal and having regular diet now. I am happy to see her recover so fast.”

The first transplant was conducted on 21-year-old girl from Solapur. Among the four siblings she is the only one whose uterus was absent by birth. The hospital conducted another womb transplant on Friday on a 24-year-old woman from Baroda who suffered from Asherman’s Syndrome (scar tissue in the uterus) and who received her mother’s womb. Surgeons at GCLI will transplant a womb in a third woman, who is suffering from cervical cancer, at a later stage.
