Mr Joby Taylor gained his medical degree from the University of Edinburgh in 1998, including an intercalated Honours degree in Anatomy. After his initial medical jobs in Scotland he moved to Teesside to complete his basic surgical training. He then undertook a period of full time clinical research in West Yorkshire, focussing on the epidemiology of urinary symptoms and advanced urodynamic techniques. Following this he completed his higher urological training in West Yorkshire.
He gained a broad experience of general urology but was also fortunate to train under several internationally recognised experts in andrology and functional urology. This allowed him to develop a special interest in neuropathic bladder, incontinence and andrology. He has continued to conduct clinical research and has published articles on a range of topics. He was key one of the key authors on a national guideline for suprapubic catheters. He spent 2 years as an expert memeber of the York Research Ethics Committee.
On completing his training he initially worked as a consultant in West Yorkshire delivering specialist tertiary level services including sacral neuromodulation, artificial sphincter implantation and reconstructive bladder surgery. In 2011 he moved back up to Scotland to work at Forth Valley Royal Hospital where he continues to provide a range of specialist services for bladder and sexual dysfunction in addition to general urology.
