Surgeon carries out first head transplant on dead bodies

World's first human head transplant successfully carried out

Only a year ago, Dr Ren had successfully grafted a head onto a monkey's body, the report said.

The Italian neurosurgeon gives off a mad-scientist vibe that fits well with what you might expect from a guy looking to connect the the spine, nerves and blood vessels of two living people - thus making us immortal.

The first human head transplant, in the human mode, has been realised. He has signed up his first patient, a Russian man called Valery Spiridinov who will have his head frozen and then grafted onto a new donor body, according to his doctor.

"The first human transplant on human cadavers has been done", Sergio Canavero, the director of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group, said.

A scientific paper explaining how he did it is expected to be released in the next few days.

Professor Canavero's team had previously claimed to have successfully transplanted the heads of rats and monkeys.

"Canavero has not completed a successful human head transplant, and it is very unlikely that he will ever do so", the magazine wrote on Friday, in a story debunking Canaveros' claims.

Wind, snow to hit the region
After a cooler Tuesday, with highs in the 30s and mid 40s, warm and dry conditions take over for the rest of the week. Overview: A Wind Advisory is in effect through the day Saturday , with wind gusts around 45 miles per hour possible.

Canavero said he was teaming with Dr. Ren Xiaoping of China, and they along with the Chinese government would be announcing a date soon. And he says that the successful test shows that his plans will work, according to the British newspaper The Independent.

Technically, the head would be the recipient, as the donor would be the person who is brain dead giving up their healthy body.

Professor Canavero has gained fame and some notoriety for his controversial claims about the first head transplant.

There have, however, been other kinds of recent milestones in the transplant space, including one of the most extensive face transplants ever done and the prospect of human organ donations from genetically modified pigs.

He added that it would be the last step before a full head transplant happens some time before the end of the year, USA Today reported. "Everyone said it was impossible, but the operation worked", he said.

But the medical community has looked at the surgery and the spectacle surrounding it with horror.
