Human beings organs viz Brain, Heart, Kidney, Lungs, Large intestine, Gall bladder etc are connected by Veins, Arteries & Capillaries in various systems of Human body.

In special surgery cases,(if possible), Can the Surgeon operating on the specific organ shift the original organ position to another location either by repairing or replacing the organ?

Will the Surgery be a success?

What i  mean by this is the original position of the internal organ is shifted to another location inside the Human body and the organ still works.

Example : Heart, Lung, Brain, Kidney, Large intestine, Gall bladder etc

Thanks & Regards,

Thanks.

If Not, Why?

Thanks.

Examples :

Brain is shifted to another location in Human anatomy.
Heart is shifted to another location in Human anatomy.
Liver, Gall bladder positions are swapped.
Large intestine, Small intestine positions are swapped.
The Kidneys positions are shifted to another location.
The Lungs position are shifted
to another location.

Will the Organs still work with the Surgeries a success?

Can you classify this as complex surgeries?

Will you classify this as interesting Research & Development projects in Surgeries?

Thanks & Regards,

"Wiring" of the organs is the issue. Organs are connected via specialized tissue that require a blood source. The blood is obtained via capillaries, so if you disrupt these, the organ won't function. Furthermore, what controls the release of chemicals from various organs are controlled by neurons. Neurons, if broken, generally do not repair themselves.

Thank you.

You mean, no organ from original location in different systems of Human anatomy can be shifted to another location
Or
it may/can be possible for some specific organ/s without capillaries disruption and neurons not being broken?

Is it impossible for a Surgeon to avoid capillaries disruption and neurons not being broken while performing surgeries?

In that case, can this be classified as complicated surgeries?

It's impossible. Humans don't operate like Frankenstein. Even an inanimate object like a car couldn't perform properly if one component was moved to another spot without having to re-engineer parts, length wires, etc. Let alone a human being, who is exponentially more complicated than a vehicle.

Thank you.

You mean the reengineering part is the major obstacle or hurdle for  surgeons to perform stitches, connections, wiring of all organs once the specific Organ is shifted?

Either the original organ which was shifted will fail or some other organ will fail in Human anatomy systems as you mention after the surgery is completed?

Thank you.

Examples :

Brain is shifted, Brain will fail or other organs?
Heart is shifted, Heart will fail or other organs?
Lung/s is/are shifted, Lung/s will fail or other organs?
Kidney/s is/are shifted, Kidney/s will fail or other organs?
Liver is shifted,Liver will fail or other organs?
Large intestine is shifted,Large intestine will fail or other organs?
Gall bladder is shifted,Gall bladder will fail or other organs?

and so on for other organs ...

The take-home message is that no organ can be moved to another location without a catastrophe happening. The brains have millions of neurons cannot via the spinal cord, those cannot be rerouted.

Thanks.

So the bottomline is "Brain" - CNS neurons may get affected because of other organ/s displacement and neuron/s regeneration is a difficult task by medical sciences?

Bottom line is that these organs were designed and located based on what allowed for the human race to survive.

Moving any organ out of its place is technically impossible for countless reasons including tissue mismatch, lack of blood vessels, damage to the blood vessels, and possibility for infection, and damage to neurons...

Thank you.

Even though this could be the most difficult or impossible surgery to perform can this be useful to write on a piece of paper the steps to carry out  this surgery and then later powerpoint slides for presentation?

I mean after bringing neurosurgeons and Cardiac surgeons together in a seminar or conference.
