I woke up to an information that I still don’t believe till this moment. A friend told me that there is health transplant surgery, I didn’t argue with him but that doesn’t mean I believe it, why would someone need head transplant by the way?
Has anyone here heard anything concerning a possible head transplant operation? when was it carried out. I won’t bother to ask of how much it costs because I know that it’s gonna be a billion dollar surgery if it’s ever going to be possible

Yes, head transplant is possible.
The recipient bodies had to be kept alive with mechanical ventilation and drugs to stimulate the heart.
The grafted heads were able to function – the eyes tracked moving objects and it could chew and swallow.
In 2013 Sergio Canavero published a protocol that he said would make human head transplantation possible.
on November 17, 2017; the same Italian neurosurgeon Sergio Canavero gestures as he speaks during a news conference in Vienna, Austria, Canavero has said he plans to complete the first – ever human head transplant to happen in China.
He said; donor will be the healthy body of a brain-dead patient matched for build with a recipient’s disease-free head.
Canavero estimated the procedure to cost up about a $100m and will involve several dozen surgeons and other specialists.
although I saw something similar that it has been successful but I never bothered to read because the blog that published that article is good at manipulating article title for traffic generation.
