Winger Taylor made his first start since mid-September against Tranmere Rovers on Boxing Day but lasted just 16 minutes before an innocuous collision left him unable to continue.
The 30-year-old, who has missed much of the last two years through injury, went under the knife earlier this week.
"He’s only made seven starts in two seasons.
"It’s difficult for Tayls, but we are a club and people here want to support others when they have tough moments, so we will get round him.
"We are constantly phoning him, making sure he’s still a part of what we are trying to do.”
Schofield hopes Taylor will be back in time for the start of pre-season ahead of the 2023/24 campaign, when he will enter the final year of his current contract.
Schofield said: "We will just see how the healing process goes, then we will step up his rehab.”
Rovers skipper Adam Clayton also missed yesterday’s match, with first-year scholar Will Flint called into the matchday squad.
Schofield said: “Clayts is still struggling with a glute issue.
"He’s not trained all week, so a decision was made on him not to travel.”
Schofield was not aware of any fresh injuries picked up against Orient.
Doncaster return to action away to Crawley Town next weekend.
