Meet Dr. Taylor

The da Vinci Surgical System™ is an Option with Dr. Joshua Taylor

In the hands of Dr. Joshua Taylor, the minimally invasive precise movements of tiny instruments of The da Vinci Robot may be the way your surgery is performed. Rather than the surgeon’s hands in your body, their hand movements are guiding robotic tools. Using a tiny camera with a light that sends precise videos to a monitor in the operating room theater, Dr. Taylor is able to guide the entirety of the surgical procedure from hand held instruments at a control panel.
This Robotic surgical technique means small incisions, the ability for Dr. Taylor to zoom in and magnify the area of concern all with great precision.
This targeted surgical approach generally allows patients to recover faster with less pain and less need for pain medications.
