Spanish Physician Pioneer in Head Transplants

Dr. Luis De la Cruz, Pioneer in Head Transplantation

While medical researchers still struggle with devising successful brain transplants, Spanish physician, Dr. Luis De la Cruz, is on the cutting edge of head transplants.

De la Cruz has invented a procedure which can add up to 2 inches to a person's height. De la Cruz claims he has successfully completed head transplants on 17 patients.

The procedures are performed in the doctor's clinic in Madrid, Spain. The Clinica La Luz is the only clinic in the world where patients can undergo the 90-minute operation where a small incision is made on the side of the head allowing a silicon implant to be placed between the skull and the scalp. The average implant measures 1 inch while the maximum allowed is 2 inches with the need for 2 operations. The first procedure is needed to stretch the scalp.
