That was my initial reaction when I first read this article.

Gallbladder removed through the vagina.
Appendix removed through the mouth.

I wonder what's next.

I will reserve judgement on these very new & very experimental procedures until I know more about them & what advantages they may have over conventional laparoscopic procedures (apart from vanity reasons i.e. external scarring).

I don't see how this makes the surgery less difficult than conventional laparoscopy.

If anything, it would be more difficult!
