9 women receive womb transplants

Posted: Updated:

Fox 9 medical expert Dr. Archelle Georgiou explains a recent study that may support a promising future for pregnancy following a uterine transplant.

University of Gothenberg Dr. Mats Brannstrom gathered a medical team and recruited 10 Swedish women who were born without a uterus or had it removed because of cervical cancer. One could not proceed with the trial for medical reasons, but 9 of them went on to have a womb transplant, and Dr. Brannstrom hopes the technique could help other women who would otherwise not be able to get pregnant.
