PUNE: A team of city doctors successfully performed country's first womb (uterus) transplant on a 21-year-old Solapur woman on Thursday.

The woman, who suffers from congenital absence of uterus since birth, was fitted with her mother's womb so that she can conceive normally.

The minimally invasive retrieval of the womb carried out mainly through key hole surgery and its subsequent transplant performed only through open surgery took nine hours.

Since the majority of the retrieval part was done through minimally invasive key hole surgery medically known as laparoscopic surgery, the donor did not even require blood transfusion.
