This is a relatively new surgical procedure that allows the uterus to be detached from inside the body by laparoscopic instruments while the doctor is viewing the uterus, tubes, and ovaries through a camera attached to a telescope. After the uterus is detached, it is removed through a small incision at the top of the vagina. Because laparoscopic hysterectomy does not require the surgeon to make a large abdominal incision, it’s a less invasive procedure than traditional methods of hysterectomy.
Dr. Taylor is highly sought after by patients who are looking for a second opinion on hysterectomy. He is a world renowned surgeon who has performed thousands of surgeries using the minimally invasive Laparoscopic technique. He firmly believes there is no reason to cut people open if it's not necessary.
The world’s first Laparoscopic Hysterectomy was done in 1989. Dr. Taylor performed his first Laparoscopic Hysterectomy in 1991. His preceptors were Dr. James Dorsey from Greater Baltimore Medical Center, Dr. C. Y. Liu, world-renowned as a pioneer and leader in the field of advanced gynecological endoscopic surgery, and Dr. Charles Miller former AAGL President and a specialist in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery.
Dr. Taylor is a member of The Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons and has had Dr. Charles Koh President of SLS as his preceptor.
