    Could doctors transplant a HEAD onto a body in 2 years' time?

    Holy ****, this is hard to buy

    The Italian surgeon believes the technique could save the lives of people riddled with cancer or whose nerves and muscles have wasted away.

    Interesting to see the video explanation as to why the surgeon thinks the procedure will work while we still can't cure existing severe spinal Injuries.

    Sergio Canavero confident he can perform head transplant to help those like Christopher Reeve | Daily Mail Online


    The Independent also ran the story...

    Full-body transplants will be possible within two years, says controversial surgeon Sergio Canavero - Science - News - The Independent

    It's interesting that the surgeon who has carried out a spinal procedure where the patient walked again thinks it will never happen.

    Also, how would they keep the brain functioning when the head is severed?

    No one ever talks about 'the weak, silent type'. When's their moment?

    I'd say it would be impossible. A body onto a head however...

    After the events of yesterday, weldone has clearly proven this has already been successfully performed by displaying how much of a dickhead he is.
