Valery Spiridonov, a 30-year-old computer scientist from Russia, is willing to put his life on the line for a "world's first" operation.
He'd be literally sticking his neck out for Dr. Sergio Canavero, who some in the medical community have called "nuts."
That's because Dr. Canavero wants to perform the world's first HEAD TRANSPLANT!!
Why would anyone volunteer for that?? Spiridonov would because he's wheelchair bound, with a rare, genetic, degenerative muscular disease called Werdnig-Hoffman.
