About head (or body) transplant

Recently, the WFNS has published its official position on the possibility of carrying out a human head transplant https://www.wfns.org/newsletter/25
The Italian Society of Neurosurgery was questioned in view of the fact that the Neurosurgeon involved in the project, Dr. Sergio Canavero, is Italian. The official response of SINch is given below.
It should be noted that Dr. Canavero is not a member of the Italian Society of Neurosurgery and has never collaborated with SINch research groups.
SINch fully agrees with what WFNS has expressed and considers the project at present unworkable, both on a technical and ethical level.
