Bionic vaginas made from pig intestines
- Posted on: Feb 4 2018
The professor who developed an artificial trachea to help those with throat cancer claims to only be a few years away from developing a bionic vagina grown from pig intestines using human fat stem cells. The professor is Alexander Seifalian. He works for NanoRegMed based in London. Just like the artificial trachea, the bionic vagina would be for use in female patients suffering from vaginal cancers.
The London professor is not the first to grow a vagina in a laboratory. That honor goes to a U.S. doctor named Anthony Atala. Between 2005 and 2008 Dr. Atala implanted lab grown vaginas into the bodies of four teenage patients. Professor Seifalian’s hybrid method of using pig intestines grown with human stem cells had the benefit of grown the vagina faster.
Professor Seifalian says the bionic vagina is at least five years away from being implanted in the first female patient. Until then, women who want a younger, tighter vagina can visit Women First here in Chesapeake for Femtouch treatments. Learn more about Femtouch and book your consultation appointment online.
