Dr. Giuliano Testa, a transplant surgeon at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas who led the medical team that performed the first successful uterus transplants in the United States, was named by TIME magazine as one of the most influential people in the world for his role in helping women give birth via uterus transplant.
“What we are doing is going to shed light on infertility for women,” Testa said at the TIME 100 Gala on April 24. “I personally never knew it was such a widespread issue. We should be thinking about it not just as a birth, but a wellbeing issue.”
