Donor kidneys removed with single bellybutton cut

Brad Kaster donated a kidney to his father this week, and he barely has a scar to show for it.

The kidney was removed through a single incision in his bellybutton, a surgical procedure Cleveland Clinic doctors say will reduce recovery time and leave almost no scarring.
I don't know about this. I mean, I'm pretty sure a kidney could totally fit through my big nasty bellybutton, so that part's OK I guess.

But, I gotta be honest. If I am giving someone a kidney, the least I would want in return is a big gnarly scar.

I'd be showing that off to everyone at the drop of a hat. Sitting next to a stranger on the bus? I'd hike up my shirt and tell the whole gory story! Christmas morning with my great grandchildren? Heck yeah, I'll say, "Did I tell you the story about giving up my kidney back in Ought Eight?" and then I'll ignore them when they try to tell me I've told them a million times and show them my crepe-y grandma flesh. And heaven forbid I ever end up on a game show or something, although I'm sure Alex Trebek would be really polite about it.

Anyway, that's just me, I'm sure this would be great news for most folks...

I don't think I would want to know how that is possible!
LOL! You're funny.

If one less kidney would keep me out of the bathroom longer, I'll go for it!
