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.

Mr Tayton now offers knee replacements using the latest robotics-assisted technology at Circle Reading Hospital. The NAVIO Surgical system helps some of the country’s leading surgeons to deliver even greater accuracy during your operation, while also eliminating the need for a CT scan before surgery. 

He is married with a young daughter. He enjoys endurance sports such as running and cycling, and has completed two marathons.

His current NHS position is as a Substantive Consultant at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in lower limb (hip and knee) surgery. His first clinical qualification came in 2002.

His special clinical interests are hip replacement, revision hip replacement and computer navigated knee replacement.

He is also a keen teacher of junior colleagues and has gained a PG cert in Medical Education from the University of Dundee.

His research interests are stem cell therapies and tissue engineering strategies for orthopaedic conditions. He is actively involved in research, constantly looking for novel techniques to improve the current management of orthopaedic conditions. He has over 20 peer reviewed publications in top journals and lectured internationally on all of the work undertaken.
