Patient set to undergo the world's first human head transplant

Post by HoratioTarr on Thu Aug 04, 2016 3:56 pm

The terminally ill man who is set to become the world's first head transplant recipient says more details about his extraordinary surgery will be revealed next month.
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.

I dislike this thought immensely (I am really creeped out by beheadings) but understand how absolutely and completely, this could change people's lives.

Can you imagine how this man must be feeling? It's bad enough when someone has to go for a relatively simple hospital procedure....but to be the first person in the world to undertake such an immense operation...it's mind blowing....like a nightmare.

Yeah,, but imagine if it all went a bit Pete Tong. Imagine when they start putting old heads on young bodies! It's just wrong. It's like Re-animator!

I really don't think I could do it, despite all my talk about wishing my body was 20 years younger!!!!!!!
