Dr. Shailesh Puntambekar

In what’s likely to be a groundbreaking medical procedure conducted in India, Pune’s Galaxy Care Hospital is all set to be the first hospital in the country to conduct uterine transplants.

In order to prepare for these rare and challenging surgeries, Dr. Shailesh Puntambekar and his team trained in Germany and in the United States. They also learnt the protocol from the Swedish team that first conducted this transplant successfully. The hospital is also working closely with the Dr. Mats Bronnstrom of the University of Gothenburg in Sweden, considered the pioneer in this field.
