Richard Smith - Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, London, UK

Richard Smith speaks with ecancer at BCGS 2018 about womb transplantation surgery at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in London.

He outlines the live and brain-dead transplants upcoming, and the involvement of women with Mayer Rokitansky Küster Hauser syndrome who make up the majority of uterine transplant recipients.

Smith describes some of the historic developments in surgical techniques which have led to full womb transplantation, including developments led by Swedish surgeons and the ethical clearance surrounding these operations.
