World’s first baby born after ROBOTIC womb transplant - science miracle
The birth by planned caesarean took place on Monday, and both the unnamed mother and baby are doing well, doctors have said. The recipient of the womb transplant received the organ in October 2017, at the Sahlgrenska Academy Hospital at the University of Gothenburg. Robotic assistance was used in the key-hole surgery, which saw a one centimetre incision opened on the abdomen, with surgeons guiding robotic arms to perform the operation.
Two surgeons used joystick-like controls to guide a robotic arm each and a magnified 3D image of the lower abdomen to precisely operate.At the end of the procedure, another incision is made so one womb can be removed and replaced with another. Researchers say this method is more practical as recovery time is much faster than traditional surgery.
