serious question

if this turns out to be successful...would this guy be responsible for the greatest medical breakthrough of all time?
It's quite a feat, yes. But I think curing more widespread diseases like cancer, or even the underlying disease that makes this poor fella even need a head transplant, would be much more significant.

The surgeon has yet to review Spiridonov's personal medical records. The two have only made contact through Skype.
Now I feel bad turning down all these Russian Skype invites...

The head transplant sounds fake.

Now, if he was planning to create the first autonomous Futurama-style head-in-a-jar, I would have doubts.

I guess. I cant find a single damn link. Not even contact info. Every single thing I've found links back to this guy with absolutely nothing about his organization, other than the fact he's the director, which means I should be able to find out about the others from the organization.

Found something. Nothing more sadly

What do you mean? You think the "human head transplant" is just viral marketing for the game?
As i have written: if it is.

"KOJIMAAAAAA! Your viral bullshit got on international news again! People are going to find out, and we can't handle that kind of popularity! You're a loose cannon, Kojima, and we're letting you go!"

Uhm, wait... do people think the entire head transplant thing is viral marketing for MGSV? A Kojima troll?

Valery Spiridonov is a real person. You think he's just part of MGS V marketing? The neurosurgeon has also done a TED talk and many interviews. This is too big to be part of a promotional campaign for a videogame.

I just thought Kojima might have based the appearance of the doctor on this guy. Beyond that, it's crazy talk.

I would approve of this motive. If this is all from some sort of hoax, he's gone too far.

Just came across this, yeah. So thats a thing. I'm moreso confused why a guy from an organization that I cannot find anything notable on (like as a group) looks like someone from a Hideo Kojima game.

Snake, you won't believe what we found out about this Canavero guy - he's a member of the Gruppo Avanzato di Neuromodulazione di Torino, GANT for short.

Guessing the organization is fake, in the "I'm a crackpot doctor and what I'm doing isn't safe" manner.
