Doctors Try New Surgery for Gallbladder Removal

Published: April 20, 2007

"Doctors in New York have removed a woman’s gallbladder with instruments passed through her vagina, a technique they hope will cause less pain and scarring than the usual operation, and allow a quicker recovery. The technique can eliminate the need to cut through abdominal muscles, a major source of pain after surgery."

Rest of story HERE from the NY Times.

I certainly hope I don't need my gallbladder removed any time soon... :(
