UAB performed our first successful uterus transplant in 2022. Our program is committed to helping eligible patients overcome uterine factor infertility, a condition in which a woman cannot achieve pregnancy because she was born without a uterus, had it surgically removed during a hysterectomy, or has a uterus that does not function properly. The condition is estimated to affect as many as 5% of childbearing-aged women worldwide and once was an irreversible form of female infertility. Patients undergo significant physical and psychological evaluation to ensure that they understand the risks of the procedure and have considered alternatives. The entire process can take 2-5 years.
