It's hard to believe, but removing the appendix without scarring is not possible, and in more ways than one. Trend Hunter posted an article on no-incision appendectomies through the vagina last week, but this week the world's first appendix removal surgery through the mouth was conducted.

The scar-free surgery was performed on Jeff Scholtz a former marine in San Diego, California. Surgeons used a flexible pipe with miniature tools at the end to perform an incision in the stomach wall to remove the appendix.
