Uterine transplantation is a new form of transplant, a real and valid alternative to adoption or aim of the procedure – surrogacy.

"My wife earlier had miscarriage, we ware doubtfull about normal delivery despite the fact that baby had umbilical cord arround the neck. But doctor took us in confidance and we followed her recomendation...and every thing went well.Thank you Dr. Padma Priya and Team @ Global Hospital."


“An awesome doctor. She is caring, friendly and supremely confident. She pushes very hard for normal delivery, a rare thing in today's medical field. I had a small scare during the 37th week when my AFI was down to 8. She immediately put me on IVs and asked me to take Largine powder. My AFI came up to around 11 and we pushed through for another 2.5 weeks! You can blindly chose her as your OB/GYN, you will never ever regret! “


"The first thing about Dr Padmapriya is the best gynecologist in Chennai and that she has earned with her experience. She will meet you with full of Joy in any consultancy during your visit. From the first day of our Visit she was very confident for Normal Delivery which she did actually at the time of delivery. We blessed with a baby boy with standard delivery and all because of Dr Padmapriya Vivek."
