Women with ovarian failure have new hope, thanks to ovary transplant. It's been possible since 2004 to transplant ovarian tissue between identical twins, restoring fertility to the recipient. In 2007 the first successful whole-ovary transplant was performed, also between identical twins. A method that generated buzz in the past year is self-transplant: a 31-year-old woman who received a Hodgkin's disease diagnosis when she was 20 had one ovary removed and frozen before her treatment could destroy it. The ovary has been reimplanted, and the woman hopes to become pregnant.
