Not only is this the first uterus transplant in Gujarat history, but it is also the first time in the country that a uterus has been transplanted in a government hospital.
A woman from Ahmedabad and another from Keshod had uterus transplants from their mothers at the civil hospital campus in Ahmedabad. For this transplant, a team of ten doctors from Puna came to Ahmedabad.
A study says there is one in every 5,000 women has had a uterine cyst since birth.
The Director of the kidney hospital Dr. Vineet Mishra said that normally the process of uterus transplant takes 12 hours but Dr. Shailesh Putambaker’s team completed both the transplants in 10 to 12 hours.
Dr. Shailesh from Pune said that history has been created in Gujarat with two uterus transplants done in a single day. “In 2017, we did the first uterine sac transplant in Pune.
This transplant was not done anywhere in the country except in Maharashtra, now this transplant has been done in Gujarat. We have done this entire operation through the telescope which no one is doing in the whole world. Both the patient women and the donor mothers who donated their wombs are healthy. Now after seven months both the women will be able to conceive,” he said.
They will be able to give birth to their child in the same womb in which those women were born, according to the doctor. It is important to note that the kidney hospital has been working on uterus transplants in Gujarat for the past two years. This transplant will be a blessing for the women who have been transplanted and long for motherhood.
