In China, the controversial surgeon Sergio Canavero of Italy held the world's first transplant of the head.
"The first human transplant on human cadavers has been done", Sergio Canavero, the director of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group, said.
The Italian neurosurgeon gives off a mad-scientist vibe that fits well with what you might expect from a guy looking to connect the the spine, nerves and blood vessels of two living people - thus making us immortal.
Professor Canavero attracted media attention after stating, in early 2015, that he will be able to perform the first successful human head transplant by 2017. He says the next phase in to perform the swap on two living, but brain dead organ donors. He, however, added that the proof of the procedure will be put in public domain soon.
Valery Spiridinov, from Russian Federation, is to become the first living person to have his head frozen and placed onto another body.
"Everyone said it was impossible, but the surgery was successful". "But the surgery was successful".
Doctors claim to have successfully carried out the world's first human head transplant
However, a majority of the medical fraternity has raised doubts about Dr Canavero's sensational claim.
Canavero also said that the details of the surgery are likely to be released in a few days by a surgical journal.
Professor Canavero claimed that the procedure took place in China because "the Americans did not understand" and wouldn't fund the experiments, according to USA Today.
In a phone interview today, Canavero told USA Today that the operation will take place in China because the scientific establishment and authorities of Europe and the U.S. were unwilling to support the contentious surgery.
However, that operation can not be considered a "full" head transplant as the team did not attempt to join the spinal cords and the animal would have been completely paralyzed.
His team have made repeated claims for his success, including supposedly having successfully carried out the surgery on both rats and monkeys - as well as now on a human corpse.
