Surgeons at Taylor Hospital use the following technologies:
Laparoscopic technology, which enables surgeons to directly examine the abdominal organs without large incisions. Laparoscopic technology is used for everything from appendicitis to gallbladders and various types of gynecological and thoracic surgeries. With the assistance of recently trained general and colorectal surgeons, laparascopically assisted colon surgery is now being done at Taylor.
Lasers, which enable minimally invasive procedures that promote faster recovery. Lasers are typically used for eye, ear, bladder and kidney procedures.
The OrthoPat intraoperative blood collection system, which gives you back your own blood, minimizing the need for costly blood transfusions following total joint replacement.
The Harmonic Scalpel® is an instrument used during surgery that simultaneously cuts and coagulates tissues with great precision.
Arthroscopy is a procedure in which a small camera is used to look inside the joint, enabling diagnosis or surgical treatment without a large incision.
Taylor Hospital anesthesiologists have years of experience with anesthetic agents and recognize that each patient has a unique set of medical requirements. As a result of this patient-centered approach to care, every Taylor Hospital patient meets with an anesthesiologist before surgery to discuss his or her medical history and a plan of care. This discussion enables the anesthesiologist to tailor anesthetic and pain management techniques to each patient's specific needs. In addition, Taylor Hospital anesthesiologists and staff work very closely with patients on pain management.
