BIO

Dr. Gaylord grew up in Knoxville, the son of UT neonatologist Dr. Mark Gaylord and Dr. Nan Gaylord, professor at the UT College of Nursing and director of the Vine School Health Clinic. After extensive training around the U.S. and Canada, he is pleased to be back home practicing with Knoxville Orthopaedic Clinic.

Dr. Gaylord chose pediatric orthopaedics because he wanted to be able to help children and see how their treatment improves the rest of their lives. He is especially interested in treating fractures, deformities of the extremities and spine, and congenital abnormalities.

 

In his spare time Dr. Gaylord enjoys sports, traveling, and being part of the Vol Navy. He is married to Lauren Bell Gaylord, a pediatric nurse practitioner and native Knoxvillian, and they have one young son.
