First U.S. Uterus Transplant Removed After Complication

March 9, 2016

(Washington Post) – The woman who received the first uterus transplant performed in the United States suffered a sudden complication that forced surgeons to remove the organ, the Cleveland Clinic announced Wednesday. Just two days after she was introduced to much fanfare at a news conference, the 26-year-old woman, named Lindsey, is “doing well and recovering,” the Cleveland Clinic said in a news release.
