World’s first human head transplant a success, controversial scientist claims

Telegraph – by Sarah Knapton

The world’s first human head transplant has allegedly been performed on a corpse in an 18 hour operation which successfully connected the spine, nerves and blood vessels of two people.

The operation was carried out by a team led by Dr Xiaoping Ren of Harbin Medical University, China, who last year successfully grafted a head onto the body of a monkey

Italian Professor Sergio Canavero, Director of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group, who has been working with the team, said they would ‘imminently’ move onto a living human who was paralysed from the neck down.

He told The Telegraph that electrical stimulation of the nerves proved the operation on the corpse had been successful, and that the two people had been completely attached.

  1. I find it strange how anyone would go through all of that just to remain within a false reality, i mean if you really like it hear you can come back….In a fresh new vessel even. ….all of this hacking and chopping goes against the natural order.

  2. I was tryin’ to think of Hillary’s head on Soros’s body. Or Zuckerberg’s head on Michelle Obama’s body. Or Paul Ryan’s head on… Oh wait, there was no body that wanted that head.

    Just amusing myself. I’m sure you can come up with some head/body matches that are outstanding.



  3. Sweet. Now I can get a penile reduction by just swapping it out with a smaller one. Non of that mucking about with scraping a bunch off from the sides and end. and now one can retain the feeling!

  4. ya want 2 heads.go ask the Jefferson air heads plane face band. After bathing in Nixon’s bath tub at water mentally smile before the empire will laugh so hard you will crap your pants or the walls ..
