Womb transplant performed in Turkey

Ankara: A team of Turkish surgeons took a uterus from a donor and have successfully transplanted it into a 21-year-old woman.

The womb transplant surgery that lasted seven hours was performed at the Akdeniz University Hospital in the southern province of Antalya.

"We are very glad to find a cure for the patient`s desire to be a mother. We hope that we can see her giving birth to the baby," said team head and associate professor Omer Ozkan of the Reconstructive Plastic Surgery department.
