Trepanation is a surgical procedure that involves making a hole in the skull in order to improve the brain. There is archeological evidence that the practice of trepanation has been around since at least the Stone Age, which makes it the oldest known surgery. Many modern surgeons consider trepanation to be some a superstitious or outdated practice and believe that there is no scientific basis to justify it. There are however others who have results to show that it does work.
According to practitioners of trepanation, making an opening in the skull favorably alters movement of blood through the brain and improves most brain functions. Dutch researcher and a medical school graduate who has never gone into practice by the name of Bart Huges promotes trepanation with an idea that when babies are born, their skulls are soft, allowing their brains to breathe and grow. But with age, human skulls harden, keeping the brain locked in and thus prevented from further expansion and better oxygenation. Trepanation is argued to give the people the ability to expand their brain back.
Perhaps the most prominent proponent of trepanation is Amanda Fielding of Oxford, England who self drilled a hole in her head because no surgeons wanted to do it for her and not only did she live through it, later she became a candidate for Parliament – twice. Amanda Fielding was running on a pro-trepanation platform. She wanted trepanation to be on offered free by the National Health Service and got 49 votes the first time she ran and 139 the second time.
Below is a video of trepanation performed on a child. I think the video is from Ukraine. Propsto Best Gore member yschenko for the tip:
