A controversial Italian professor claims that he and a team of surgeons have successfully performed the first-ever human head transplant.
According to professor Sergio Canavero, who made the stunning announcement at a press conference on Friday, the surgery took place in China using human cadavers in an exhaustive procedure requiring an astounding 18 hours to complete.
Details surrounding the transplant have yet to be fully revealed, but Canavero says its purported success confirms that his concept for how a head transplant could be accomplished is viable.
"We have entered an age where we will take our destiny back in our hands," he proudly declared at the press conference, boasting that the surgery will "change everything. It will change you at every level."
