Giuliano Testa, a 56 year old Italian surgeon, was the first to successfully transplant a uterus in the United States. This is the doctor they call “miracles.” His fame has swept the whole world. The transplant he performed allowed a woman to give birth to a child.
Every year, the famed “Time Magazine” prepares a list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Guliano Testa was Time’s second most influential scientist of 2018. Guliano Testa, is now a researcher and surgeon at the Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, but his origin is Padua, Italy, where he was born. He attended the University of Padua, Italy and the University of Chicago.
A grateful mother who was told it could never be
According to Time, the mother of the first baby born of a uterine transplant in the U.S. said, “I was born without a uterus. Then in 2016, I met Dr. Giuliano Testa.”
She goes on to say:”I was one of 10 women selected to participate. A few months later, I had a functioning transplanted uterus—the first in the U.S. “
“The experience was not without setbacks. But through it all, Dr. Testa was a pillar of strength and assurance. And that confidence was contagious.”
“This past November, I delivered a beautiful, healthy baby boy. As I held him in my arms, I caught Dr. Testa’s eye. He had worked so hard to make this happen—not just for me, but for the millions of families who have been told that parenthood through pregnancy is impossible. It has been the honor of my life to be a small part of his miracle.”
