Technical barriers to grafting one person's head onto another person's body can now be overcome, says Dr. Sergio Canavero, a member of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group. In a recent paper, Canavero outlines a procedure modeled on successful head transplants which have been carried out in animals since 1970.
The one problem with these transplants was that scientists were unable to connect the animals' spinal cords to their donor bodies, leaving them paralyzed below the point of transplant. But, says Canavero, recent advances in re-connecting spinal cords that are surgically severed mean that it should be technically feasible to do it in humans. (This is not the same as restoring nervous system function to quadriplegics or other victims of traumatic spinal cord injury.)

In December 2008, Dr Sergio Canavero, Director of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group, one of the leading experts in the field of cortical stimulation, announced that a girl (Greta) in the permanent vegetative state (i.e. vegetative state lasting more than 12 months), recovered consciousness and was regraded as minimally conscious following several months of bifocal extradural cortical stimulation (Canavero et al. 2009), a minimally invasive neurosurgical technique he and others developed for the treatment of central pain, Parkinson's disease,stroke rehabilitation,depression, and other neurologic and psychiatric disorders (Canavero 2009).

Dr Sergio Canavero, of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group in Italy, says advances in cell and nerve engineering mean surgeons can now theoretically fuse a human spinal cord.
...
It would take 100 surgeons up to 36 hours to do the pioneering operation, which would cost £8.5million, said Dr Canavero.
...
Canavero explains in his paper that the spinal cord would have to be cut with a sharp scalpel and would need to be 'mechanically connected' to the other body.
