This Kind Of Uterus Transplant Hasn't Been Done In The US — Until Now

For the first time in the U.S., surgeons have performed living-donor uterus transplants — and it's a bigger deal than you might think.
A team of doctors at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas are currently performing trial uterine transplants on 10 women with various infertility issues. Four of the transplants were completed last month.
Three of those attempts failed — the wombs had to be removed because of poor blood circulation. The fourth transplant is showing some promise, though.
