Cancer Survivor Receives Ovarian Transplant
Ten years ago, Loraine Martin had ovarian tissue harvested before she underwent aggressive treatment.
The 39-year-old woman underwent an ovarian transplant Tuesday, and now her doctors hope she will be pregnant soon.
Dr. Sam Kim, a doctor at the University of Kansas hospital, is one of three doctors in the country who can perform the procedure. Hospital officials said Tuesday's surgery was the first ovarian transplant in the Kansas City area and in the state of Kansas.
