    That would be like going straight from the era of the P40 Warhawk to building a 787.

    I feel for the potential patient and understand his willingness.

    `Last year famous Italian neuroscientist, Dr. Sergio Canavero, surprised the world when he decided to perform the first human head transplant in the world. He announced that this huge procedure will happen in December 2017. Canavero has recruited a head surgeon to lead this historical process.

    All of this may sound like something out of a science-fiction movie, but there is one man who is hoping that this operation will improve the quality of his life. A 30-year-old man from Russia, called Valery Spiridonov, is the first volunteer for the operation in the hope of living a normal life.

    Mr. Spiridonov is a computer scientist who suffers from very rare motor neuron disorder, better known as Werdnig-Hoffmann Disease. This disorder causes motor neurons to fail. This leads to muscular atrophy and in some cases, difficulty breathing and swallowing. At this time, there is no any treatment for this condition. Just like with any other surgery, this procedure has great risk and uncertainty.`
