How the Human Head Transplant Will Happen

A human head transplant sounds like something out of science fiction movie but soon it will become reality. Valery Spiridonov, a Russian computer scientist with Werdnig-Hoffman disease, will be undergoing surgery at the end of 2017.

Surgery is expected to take 36 hours and will be done in two stages, head anastomosis venture, and spinal cord fusion. There will be a team of over 150 doctors, technicians, and engineers.

Many are asking if it will work. The answer is yes but Spiridonov will still be left paralyzed or with very little function.

The interesting part of the transplant is that the spinal cord will be fused together using Polyethylene Glycol. It shows how vital they are to the medical field and new ways to repair the human body. For all of your Polyethylene Glycol needs, look to Creative PegWorks.
