Dr. Shea Taylor joined Southern Bone & Joint Specialists in 2023. Dr. Taylor, a Florida native, attended the University of South Florida College of Medicine in Tampa and completed his residency at the University of South Florida/Florida Orthopaedic Institute. He completed his fellowship training in hip and knee replacement and revision joint replacement at Dartmouth Health in New Hampshire. Because of his extensive training, Dr. Taylor not only treats patients with painful hip and knee arthritis, but also treats painful or failed hip and knee replacement.
Dr. Taylor enjoys orthopedics because of its focus on keeping people active. His goal is to always work together with patients, so they understand their options and are better able to choose the optimal treatment course to fit their needs. He believes that medicine must come with shared decision-making, and he must consider the impact of surgery on both the individual patient and their entire family unit’s needs and circumstances. He enjoys joint replacement in particular because of the long-term relationships he is able to build with his patients.
In his time away from work, Dr. Taylor enjoys spending time outdoors with his wife, who also works in healthcare, and their two German shepherds. He loves home improvement projects and building things around the house.
