If you have a free moment today, click the link and read this article. This doctor is about to attempt the world's first ever head transplant. I feel like Hollywood is going to be all over this in a couple years because this would make for one ripping good yarn at the theaters. How incredible is the time we live in? A lot of fellow doctors are condoning this surgery and giving it terrible odds of it being a success but Doctor Canavero is super confident in believing the patient will be able to walk 4-6 months after surgery. I love these two details of the surgery too..
-It’s a 36-hour, $20 million procedure involving at least 150 people, including doctors, nurses, technicians, psychologists and virtual reality engineers.
-Under an operating microscope, doctors will cleanly chop through both spinal cords—with a $200,000 diamond nanoblade, so thin that it is measured in angstroms
I feel like Jerry Seinfeld in the "Junior Mint" episode. Are there any available passes to this thing?? Are ticket scalpers outside of this event??
I'm the furthest thing away from being someone as smart as these people are so all I can do is wish this Dr. Canavero and his brilliant team good-luck. Here's the Seinfeld gif for good measure too..
