Da Vinci Surgery FAQ
Computer Assisted Robotic Technology for Gynecological Conditions
Dr. Jacqueline Taylor, a board certified surgeon who understands the stress associated with the idea of surgery. This is why she is one of Michigan’s most sought after surgeons when looking for the the state-of-the-art, computer-assisted robotic technology, for gynecology procedures. With the Da Vinci robotic procedure, she will make surgical treatments as minimally invasive and painless as possible. Dr. Taylor is also a dedicated certified clinical trainer and educator of the Davinci Robotic Procedure. Her unparalleled skills will ensure you recover and return to your daily life as quick as possible.
The Da Vinci Surgical System consists of four robotic arms, one of which contains a magnified 3D camera designed to guide the gynecologic surgeon during the procedure. Controlled from a console, these instruments and camera enable Dr. Taylor to see inside the patient on a high-definition monitor while operating. The Da Vinci system provides Dr. Taylor with a more detailed view of the operating site as well as maximum range of motion and precision.
A significant advantage of robotic surgery is that it provides unmatched control of a complicated procedure in a minimally invasive environment. Dr. Taylor’s eyes and hands are perfectly aligned with her view of the surgical site. It also provides welcomed benefits for you, the patient, including:
- Less trauma to your body
- Little, if any, scarring
- A much shorter recovery period
In today’s age of advanced technology, invasive surgery requiring large incisions is no longer necessary for the majority of gynecological conditions. During your visit, ask Dr. Jacqueline Taylor if a minimally invasive option, using miniaturized robotic surgical instruments that fit through much smaller incisions, is the right choice for you.
Some of the gynecology procedures Dr. Taylor can perform with Da Vinci computer-assisted robotic technology include fibroid removal, pelvic prolapse surgery, hysterectomy, and endometriosis resection, which spares the uterus and allows women to continue childbearing.
The Da Vinci Robotic procedure is performed by Dr. Jacqueline Taylor at the following hospitals: Beaumont Royal Oak and Providence Southfield.
