“If Heaven is reckless, nature is crazier, and nature must be given pause when it comes to what it does to us all as creatures on this planet”- Dr. Sergio Canavero
In July 2013, Italian neurosurgeon Dr.Sergio Canavero made the world aware of his plans of performing the ritual against the nature. He told the world that head anastomosis venture can be made possible. Question is,what is head anastomosis? The word speaks itself, joining head of a person into another. WAIT WHAT??
The project was named HEAVEN-GEMINI and there’s a Volunteer now to make this landmark in history of mankind come alive!
Volunteer for HEAVEN GEMINI
Dr. Sergio Canavero,from Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group (TANG) has finally found a recipient volunteer for project HEAVEN GEMINI.
Who is this Volunteer and why he wants to volunteer for Heaven Gemini?
This volunteer is Valery Spiridonav, a 30 year old computer scientist from Vlamdir, Russia. He was diagnosed of Werdnig-Hoffman disease at age of 1. Werdnig-Hoffman disease or Type 1 spinal muscular dystrophy is a rare genetic muscle wasting condition in which patient is unable to walk or even sit without aid. This is because of loss of motor neurons in spinal cord and area of brain. Spiridonav has made his thoughts clear that he is indeed hesitating and worried, but he wants to see himself walk before he die.
HOW WILL BE HEAD ANASTOMOSIS SURGERY DONE?
The most complex surgery will take 100 surgeons with almost 36 hours to finish it. Donor body will be connected with Recipient head with Spinal Cord Fusion (SCF).
The surgery will typically start from cutting off the donor body with help of ‘ULTRA SHARP BLADE’ to have minimal damage to neurons. Then, this removed body of donor will be fused with spinal cord of recipient head using chemicals called Polyethylene Glycol or Chitosan. Following the spinal cord fusion or SCF, the muscles will be ligated and blood supply will be sutured.
The patient will be required to be in coma and heavy immunosuppressants to prevent the body part of recipient from rejecting the donor body. The coma will be induced for 3-4 weeks.
Another major problem as Dr. Canavero described here is that it is very difficult to keep a patient healthy during coma for such a long period.
If all the procedure is successful and host body accepts the donor’s, it will be followed by Physical rehabilitation therapy for 1 year to make spiridonav walk with the brand new body.
Expect this remarkable wonder from Dr. Sergio canavero in 24 months ,i.e, 2017.
