That's right - head transplants. Say you have a degenerative disease that affects most of your body or your body is riddled with cancer. The solution could be to move your head to a new body.
The first human head transplant could take place in just two years, according to a radical proposal by an Italian surgeon.
Sergio Canavero, from the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group, wants the surgery to be used to help extend the lives of people who have suffered degeneration of the muscles and nerves or those who have advanced cancer.
The surgeon plans to announce the project at the American Academy of Neurological and Orthopaedic Surgeons (AANOS) conference in Annapolis, Maryland, in June, the New Scientist reported.
