Inspired doctors successfully carried out India's first womb transplant at Pune hospital

A 43-year-old mother has donated her uterus to her 21-year-old daughter in the first surgery of its kind in India. The uterus donor was the recipient's 45-year-old mother.

The young woman who suffers from congenital absence of the uterus since birth, which rendered her incapable of conceiving, was operated on to transplant her 44-year-old mother's organ to her, in a procedure conducted on Thursday. A 12-member team of specialists headed by oncosurgeon Dr. Shailesh Puntambekar is likely to conduct a third procedure.He says they practised first on cadavers in Tübingen, Germany, and in the U.S. Another candidate - a 26-year-old woman from Baroda - was ruled out because of fitness issues.

Women who receive wombs through this surgery will be able to conceive using in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) and bear children.

The surgery was performed at Pune's Galaxy Care Laparoscopy Institute (GCLI), that has been granted a licence by the state's Directorate of Health Services to carry out the uterus transplant.

However, not everyone approves of the procedure.

"What is planned in Pune is a risky escapade of surgical cowboys wanting to be the first in their country and to get (worldwide) publicity and fame easy", Dr Mats Brännström, who led the world's first womb transplant in Sweden in 2012, told Hindustan Times. For uterus transplantation, the uterus can be taken from a blood relative of the woman who is undergoing transplantation. Eggs were harvested two months ago, and will be implanted in the uterus in a year.
