Dr. Wilson is fellowship-trained in the use of minimally invasive surgery and experienced in robotic surgical techniques for performing procedures such as hysterectomy, myomectomy, tubal ligation reversal, and operations to correct reproductive abnormalities present at birth.
“Tools like the da Vinci robot use very precise instrumentation and give us a 3-D look at what’s going on,” Dr. Wilson says. “Not only do these state-of-the-art procedures help us minimize additional surgeries, they enable patients to recover much more quickly than with traditional open surgeries.”
