Experiments Separate The Dog Head And Plant It On The Other Body

Vladimir Petrovich Demikhov was a Soviet doctor. Demikhov performed a strange experiment with a dog by taking the head of a dog that had been separated from its body and then implanted it into another dog's body.

Demikhov, born in 1916, became famous for his experiments in organ transplantation during the 1930s to 1950s, after being a surgeon in a Red Army hospital during World War II.


During the war, Demikhov often stitched wounds and performed surgeries on wounded soldiers. At such a busy time, the idea of doing a heart and lung transplant to humans came up.

Not many people believed him because at the time, organ transplantation was a very crazy and unusual concept. Because of Demikhov's crazy idea, the emergence of a crazy president, Soviet president Stalin, strongly supported this concept.

Stalin then set up a secret laboratory after the war to experiment with organ transplants in order to find a way to give life to a living being. In the secret lab, Demikhov transmitted the heart and lungs between animals.

In 1960, Demikhov published his first scientific monograph on transplantology, entitled "Experimental Transplantation of Vital Organ." The monograph is a masterpiece of transplantation as we know it today. Christiaan Neethling Barnard, the first surgeon to perform a human heart transplant, considered Demikhov his mentor.

Demikhov is more famous for his more insane attempt at dog transfer! Following the success of his first transplant with his colleague Professor AG Konevskiy at the University of Medicine in Volgograd, Demikhov began a dog-head exchange.

Demikhov has implanted the dog's head and other parts of the dog in a different way, resulting in a very strange breed that lasted only a few months. The experiment inspired an American physician, Robert White, who was also a second world war surgeon to follow in the footsteps of the Soviet surgeon. The only difference is that Robert White did it to the monkeys.

Despite his extraordinary experiments in transplant science and the rescue of many during World War II, Vladimir Petrovich did not receive much recognition. Demikhov who died in 1998 has been ignored in his home country and hated by many in the world.
