On August 31 and September 1 at 19.45 on the air of the TV channel “Ukraine” there will be exclusive episodes of the talk show “Talk Ukraine” with Alexey Sukhanov. The hero of the programs will be the first person in the world who is planned to have his head transplanted onto someone else’s body as early as next year, 2017!
All over the world, doctors disagree: some call this operation a breakthrough in modern transplantation, while others argue that transplanting a head to another body is impossible. Why did the young man decide on such a dangerous experiment? And who will agree to give him his body? Two years ago programmer Valery Spiridonov shocked his mother with the news that he was going to cut off his own head and transplant it to another body.

The man has already found a doctor who agreed to perform the world’s first head transplant. It will be an Italian neurosurgeon Sergio Canavero. Prior to this, such operations on humans have not been performed all over the world. Several professors tried to transplant the heads of dogs and monkeys to other bodies, but soon the animals died.
“I am ready to take the risk and become a test subject, because I can die without surgery. Even in early childhood, I was diagnosed with Werdnig-Hoffmann syndrome. This is a disease in which all muscles atrophy in a person. With her, people do not live up to twenty, and I am already 30. But the heart is also a muscle — and it can stop any day, ”says Valery Spiridonov.
The man claims that the Italian neurosurgeon Sergio Canavero has developed a unique technique for “gluing” cells using a special biogel. Thus, he cured a girl with a spinal injury in Italy. “His technology makes head transplants possible. After all, once, 50 years ago, heart transplantation was the same revolution. And now thousands of people with donor hearts live in the world, ”says Spiridonov. The journalists of the channel “Ukraine” with the help of specialists will figure out whether it is really possible to carry out this most complicated operation?
