In something that sounds like a horror movie the first human head transplant is about to be underway as a terminally ill man has volunteered to become the world’s first head transplant recipient says more details about his extraordinary surgery will be revealed next month.
Excerpt From DailyMail:
Valery Spiridonov, a computer scientist from Russia, is set to undergo the risky procedure next year. Today, the 31-year-old is wheelchair reliant due to a muscle-wasting disease, announced his neurosurgeon would explain how the plan was progressing in September. Mr Spiridonov says he is ready to put his trust in controversial surgeon Dr Sergio Canavero who claims he can cut off his head and attach it to a healthy body. Neither the exact date or location have been chosen yet, but the world first procedure is aimed to take place in December 2017.
