Uterus Transplantation

Uterine Factor Infertility (UFI) is a condition that affects women and keeps them from being able to carry pregnancies. This is due to the patient either being born without a uterus or having a uterus that cannot carry regular functions due to impairment caused by diseases. In the MENAT region alone, at least 100,000 women are estimated to be affected by this type of infertility.

At the Sahlengrenska Academy, the University of Gothenburg and the Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Sweden, a research project that aims to provide women with the possibility of having biological children with the aid of a transplanted uterus has been ongoing since 1999. The Swedish research team accomplished its first birth in September 2014 and has performed a total of nine uterus transplants that have resulted in five pregnancies and four live births.

Renowned for its high quality standards, Bellevue was handpicked by the Swedish team for an exclusive partnership in the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey Region to conduct this clinical research.
