It’s the HEAD. That’s right, Dr. Sergio Canavero plans on removing Spiridonov’s head and reattaching it to another body. And not just any body. The donor will have to be someone who is technically still alive, but brain dead. This leads to an important question: does the brain dead person get Spiridonov’s body? It’s only fair.
You’re probably thinking this isn’t going to work and there’s a good chance you’re right. Critics of the procedure call it “pure fantasy.” I was actually thinking “pure horror.” The procedure has been attempted on animals with zero success. However, Spiridonov is willing to take the risk. He feels he’s already living on borrowed time as it is and would love to take any chance that might allow him to walk.
