What will be the groundbreaking moments this year? In late 2017 the world will experience the radical and controversial operation by the Italian Neurosurgeon Dr. Sergio Canavero as he set to attempt world’s first human head transplant.
It is easy to see the appeal of a head transplant theoretically. If it were possible and safe to execute, you could cure almost every disease.
So who is volunteering this experiment? The surgeon has found a participant willing to take the risk. His name is Valery Spiridonov, a Russian man with chronic and progressive neuromuscular problem. And according to Canavero, the donor body will come from someone who is brain dead and whose organs would be considered acceptable for transplantation.
By the way there is 90% chance of success. This is not science-fiction this is going to happen later this year.
