gallbladder-ecardYou can count on us to keep current with the newest in gallbladder removal techniques; we are, after all, crazy about gallbladders! The newest approach to gallbladder removal uses a robot to cut a tiny cut (2.5 cm) in the bellybutton. It only takes a few hours to recover enough to go back to work (both a good and bad thing, we guess). For those of you who aren't squeamish, here is a great photo of a gallbladder being removed through the belly button! Happy cholecystectomies!
iheartguts-wholesale-092We are extremely excited about our new organ and gland lapel pins, so much so, in fact, that I'm writing about them again. Though you would appreciate seeing them all together and labeled and such. We're gonna have to play a round of "Pin the Pituitary on the Body" around here. Actually, that could be really fun...
img_1541We just posted a ton of pins! Whew! Every single gut and gland now comes in lapel pin form -- want a testicle pin? You can have it. We've even added a couple new gland friends -- the sebaceous gland (when clogged, these guys give us hated acne), and the sweat gland (for the exercise fiend in your life). We've got the entire metabolic team, from salivary glands to the thyroid, from the stomach to the intestine. Check 'em out.
