Mr Tayton qualified (with honours) from UCL Medical School in London in 2002.
He undertook his Basic Surgical Training in Bristol, followed by his Higher Surgical Training in the Wessex Region. During his training he gained a Master’s degree from the University of Cardiff in Orthopaedic Engineering, where his thesis investigated the beneficial effects of flexible hip replacements on long term bone preservation after hip replacement.
During the later stages of his training he took an additional 2 years out of program at the University of Southampton in order to complete a PhD in tissue engineering strategies and stem cell therapies for the treatment of Orthopaedic conditions.
After his formal UK training he completed two fellowships. In Auckland, New Zealand, he learnt specialist techniques in complex limb reconstruction and computer navigated joint replacements. Upon return to the UK, he undertook a second fellowship further specialising in complex hip surgery under the guidance of Professor Robert Middleton in Bournemouth.
He is married with a young daughter.
He enjoys endurance sports such as running and cycling, and has completed two marathons.
