COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Doctors say the next big medical breakthrough could be incision-less surgery, which means no knives, no cuts, and, most importantly, no scars! Not only that, the new procedure also has the potential to be painless.

Seven-year-old Jacob has no problem sinking a shot on the basketball court now, but not too long ago, his appendix caused him so much pain he could barely move.

"First, I got a shot, then I had to get stitches," Jacob said. He doesn't remember too much about the incident, but he'll bare the scar from his appendectomy for life.
