The doctor team at Pune's Galaxy Care Hospital were euphoric after successfully conducting the country’s first uterus transplant in a day-long operation. 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. The uterus needed to be properly anchored to nearby organs and the blood supply had to be recreated. Doctors were extra cautious regarding vascular anastomosis (connection to blood vessels).

Initially, the transplant had been planned on another patient — a 26-year-old woman from Baroda but because of fitness related issues, that transplant will be performed on her on Friday.
