    First head transplant in Dec-2017: future cure=transplanted head on cloned body?

    Sergio Canavero claims he can make you immortal, but there?s a small catch. He first wants to chop off your head.

    If that?s not a deal-breaker, you?ll be happy to hear that the Italian neurosurgeon has announced he will perform the world?s first human head transplant in China sometime in December. (He?s vague on details, possibly for security reasons.) He will remove the head of a patient?an unidentified Chinese national?and attach it to a donor body, origin (and cause of death) unknown. The spinal cord will be fused and the blood vessels and muscles attached. The patient?same head, new body?will be kept in a coma for around a month while he (or she?) heals. Canavero says that if successful, his patient will eventually be able to walk again.

      My bet is they never go through with it. If they do, I hope the surgeon can be charged for murder because that's definitely what it will be.

        I agree.

          "He eventually found something else that excited him. After a skiing accident left a woman paralyzed in 2005—her spinal cord was completely severed—surgeons in the U.S. removed the damaged part and filled the gap with collagen, hoping the ends would fuse together naturally. A year and a half after the surgery, the woman could move her legs again."

          Need more information on this!

            I doubt her cord was severed, very often misreported.

              Looks like they've had a practice run:

              "However, earlier this year, 31-year-old Spiridonov, who suffers from a muscle-wasting disease, said he would no longer be volunteering for the ground-breaking operation, adding ‘a weight lifted off my chest’."

                    Probably accurate, they won't be live for long so actually practicing on dead bodies.

                      Correct on both accounts. It's awful.

                        He's completed the corpse head transplant.

                        Upcoming operation will be to transplant the heads of two living, but "brain dead", people.

                          I guess that's one way to solicit patients.

                            Then there will be at least 3 brain dead people in the Operating Room!

                              A lot more than that, all their literature claims they have a huge team of "surgeons" working simultaneously... smh.
