One of the top stories for 2017 was news that a Russian billionaire by the name of Valery Spiridonov will undergo a head transplant come December. The procedure was to be led by Dr. Sergio Canavero, who has been planning the operation for over 30 years. A year has passed since the set date for the transplant and the procedure still hasn’t been performed, what happened?
We first released the story about the planned head transplant back in March of 2017. At that point, we knew that Spiridonov volunteered for the operation and we had some details regarding the surgery.
