Doctors re-attach boy’s head post-car accident with ‘amazing’ surgery

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Doctors in Israel have re-attached a boy’s head after he was hit by a car while riding his bike.

Twelve-year-old Palestinian Suleiman Hassan, from the West Bank, suffered an internal decapitation — where the base of the skull and the top of the spine become detached, but the skin is still intact.

Decapitation is the total separation of the head from the body. Internal decapitation occurs when sudden impact to the head causes the ligaments and muscles holding the skull in position on the top vertebrae of the spine to tear.
