Minimally Invasive?

From Science Daily:

On March 26, 2008, surgeons at UC San Diego Medical Center removed an inflamed appendix through a patient’s vagina, a first in the United States. Following the 50-minute procedure, the patient, Diana Schlamadinger, reported only minor discomfort. Removal of diseased organs through the body’s natural openings offers patients a rapid recovery, minimal pain, and no scarring. Key to these surgical clinical trials is collaboration with medical device companies to develop new minimally-invasive tools.

Methinks that the idea of shoving surgical tools up a woman’s hoo-hoo and removing a inflamed, potentially explosive, body organ through a cut in the vaginal wall is most definitely NOT “minimally invasive”. That definition had to be made by a man.

I’d be willing to bet that 9 out of 10 women would say “go in through my belly button, please!”
