The technologies of “enhancement of human” are issue of discussion at large due to absence of clear-cut conception in society and professional community concerning related with risks for human individual and society. For the present, these technologies just began to be applied only in medicine. Therefore, namely medical professionals are this social group that is to be more informed in the area of “enhancement of human” and hence more adaptive to their application. The paradox of inconsistency of level of technologies and level of professionalism at their application includes high social risks to be foreseen and to be eliminated. To implement these task is possible with means of sociology of medicine.
