\"In September 2010, we performed the world\'s first double arm transplant. Now, we are getting ready for face transplant,\"Professor Israfil Kurtcephe added.

Turkish surgeons have conducted the world's first uterus transplant at the Akdeniz University.

Professor Israfil Kurtcephe, rector of the Akdeniz University, told a news conference on Tuesday, "a team headed by Associate Professor Omer Ozkan of the Reconstructive Plastic Surgery performed the transplant on a 21-year-old patient. The surgery was a success and the patient is recovering rapidly."

"In September 2010, we performed the world's first double arm transplant. Now, we are getting ready for face transplant," he added.

Surgeons consider uterus transplant especially difficult since uterus is a complex organ supplied by four blood vessels, which are very small by transplant standards, giving more scope for blood clotting.
