Stellenbosch University and Tygerberg Hospital recently had a big successful operation happen!
Surgeons at the Cape Town school and hospital in South Africa performed a nine hour operation for a penis transplant on a 21-year-old man who lost his penis to amputation after having it circumcised.
When the operation was complete, medical professionals thought it would take two years for the man to regain all of his penis functions, but actually it only took

Oh no! Pirate down!!
While down under, filming the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie on Australia's Gold Coast, Johnny Depp injured his hand! Oh no!!
He wasn't on set when the injury happened, so we can rule out cutlass incidents and canon malfunctions.
Whatever happened was bad enough that he's now returning to the U.S. for surgery!

And the boob saga continues…
As we reported, an inside source claims that Chelsea Handler received a breast lift six month ago, which is why she's been posting so many topless pics of herself on social media.

If you were watching the Oscars red carpet this year, you may have noticed a little scar on Faith Hill's neck. And it had people concerned for the singer!
Well, the cause behind cut has been revealed.

Miz Hill reportedly had neck surgery last month, called anterior cervical discectomy and fusion, which relieves pain from a herniated disc.
Sounds scary! But it isn't the first time Faith has had a surgery for this. In 2011, she had this surgery in the back of her neck, and has steadily been recovering with physical therapy.
We love that Faith didn't try to hide her scar at all, especially in a town where appearances seem to be everything.
Stay strong and keep inspiring us!

This family definitely does not need anymore health scares!
It's been over three weeks since Bobbi Kristina was placed on life support after being found face down in her bathtub, but now things have gotten even worse for Bobby Brown's family.
That's because Krissi's aunt Tina Brown was hospitalized for chest pains in Atlanta on Sunday.
But what makes the story even sadder is that a statement from the family states that Tina was in pain from being literally heartbroken from having to deal with Krissi's dilemma:

This is such a Homeward Bound moment!
When Dale Franck's Miniature Schnauzer Sissy went missing over night last weekend in Cedar Rapids, the 66-year-old feared the worst.
That is until he got a call from the nearby hospital that they had located his pup in an incredible way!
Apparently, Dale's wife Nancy had been recovering from Cancer surgery at Mercy Medical Center for two weeks, and Sissy somehow knew how to get from their home all the way to the hospital lobby… 20 blocks away!

This is actually a pretty smart move on his part!
Tiger Woods has decided to take a leave of absence from golf because he is disappointed in his performance.
But it's not JUST his performance that's been in decline, it's actually his health!

Not only did he lose a tooth in a freak skiing accident with his GF Lindsey Vonn, but he's still recovering from the surgery he went through AND he hurt himself AGAIN on top of that.
Talk about some bad luck!
