Mr Taylor was appointed to the Royal Bournemouth Hospital and Poole Hospital in 2004 as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with a specialist interest in complex foot and ankle surgery. His initial training as a Senior House Officer was on the Hammersmith Hospitals basic surgical training rotation. He completed his higher surgical training in London on the North West Thames Specialist Registrar training programme.
At the end of his training he carried out sub-speciality fellowship training in complex foot and ankle surgery at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore, under the supervision of Mr John Angel and Mr Dishan Singh. The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital is an internationally renowned centre for complex orthopaedic surgery. He gained vast experience in treating all forms of complex foot and ankle conditions, with patients being referred from hospitals around the country.
Mr Taylor’s current practice is almost exclusively related to conditions of the foot and ankle. This includes the management of complex trauma of the foot and ankle, as well as treating high level athletes and professional sportsmen.
