Doctor Claims World’s First Human Head Transplant Was Successful in China

After the success of ‘first’ head transplant surgery carried by a group of Chinese scientists, a controversial surgeon, Serio Canavero, is back in the news with the claims concerning ‘imminency’ of human head transparent.

Professor Canavero, an Italian neurosurgeon, told the media that the successful operation, conducted under the supervision of Dr. Xiaoping Ren – a well-known surgeon for successfully transplanting monkey’s head – took place at Harbin Medical University in China and took around 18-hours to complete.

“The first human transplant on human cadavers (corpses) has been done,” Canavero told the media. “A full head swap between brain-dead organ donors is the next stage. And that is the final step for the formal head transplant for a medical condition which is imminent.”

He further added that the operation was performed in China because the US and European government did not allow the surgeons to perform the contentious surgery on their land.

“The Americans did not understand [the significance],” he remarked. “Chinese President Xi Jinping wants to restore China to greatness. He wants to make it the sole superpower in the world. I believe he is doing it.”

In 2015, the controversial neurosurgeon had predicted that the first head transplant will be done successfully in 2017. However, the current statistics and development in the field suggests the otherwise.

The Italian surgeon has written numerous studies regarding this matter in the past years. Although, a massive group of scientists and neurosurgeons disapprove his studies saying that, “he’s out of his mind.” Canavero’s work has been slapped with the criticism in the medical community worldwide.

Dean Burnett, a doctor of neuroscience, said in an interview,

When someone makes an extreme claim, my rule of thumb is this: If they haven’t provided robust scientific evidence, but they have done a TED Talk, alarm bells should be ringing.

  • Head Transp[lant Matlab :
    Sir Kisi Ka Body Kisi Ki :
    To Wo Shaks Ka Brain Kis Pe Consitrated Karega
    Jis Ki Body Ya Jiska Head

    • Mian Tayyab

      A person with a disease in which he has a disabled bones volunteer to transplant his head to another body.i think Zinda brain transfer into dead body

      • seefi_boy

        Quite close. I did some research on this evil master mind looking guy. Currently he did the operation of both dead patients as last year he did find a volunteer whose body was disabled due to some disease and volunteered to go through a head transplant. But at the final moment backed out as this is an extremely risky operation and haven’t been done in the history of mankind. Now after this self claimed successful operation of both dead bodies, he will perform operation on a chinese alive person whose body is useless but brain is healthy against a donated dead person whose brain will be completely dead but body will be completely usable for such experiment..

        There is no dead body involves in this procedure. Their previous experiment involved three rats: one was donor, second was recipients and the third one was supplying blood to the recipient’s. The rat lived for 36 hours after the transplant

      • hatib has returned

        more population means less food, needs more electricity,more waste materials, more contaminated water etc which all leads to pollution
