World's first head transplant planned on man with disability
September 1, 2016
Two surgeons, one from China and the other from Italy, are planning to transplant the head of a terminally disabled Russian man onto a body that could allow him to survive.
The Russian is suffering from Werdnig-Hoffmann Disease that is weakening his muscles and motor neurons. He is hoping to leave that body behind with this surgery.
Many are calling the surgery a process of murder and say the surgeons should be arrested.
