No there hasn’t been a successful human head transplant Surgeon Promising Head Transplants By 2017 Speaks In Glasgow
In a weird 18-hour operation, a team lead by Dr Xiaoping Ren of Harbin Medical University in China allegedly carried out what is being termed as the world's first human head transplant on a corpse, reported The Telegraph. Canavero and Ren have played up reported successes in performing mice, monkey, and even rat head transplant operations.
According to Express, Professor Canavero, director of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group said: "It will change everything".
A scientific paper explaining how he did it is expected to be released in the next few days.
The professor said: "The first human transplant on human cadavers has been done".
Professor Canavero added that the team's next move was to make full head exchanges between dead brain organ donors.

Professor Canavero claimed that the procedure took place in China because "the Americans did not understand" and wouldn't fund the experiments, according to USA Today.
