Dr. J. Christopher Gayton joined OrthoSC, formerly Coastal Orthopedics, in September 2015. He earned his bachelor of science degree in cellular biology at The University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia. He then went on to complete his doctorate of medicine at the Medical College of Georgia – Georgia Regents University in Augusta, Georgia. Dr. Gayton completed an internship at St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and his orthopedic surgery residency training at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio.

While in his residency, Dr. Gayton completed a research fellowship with Wright State University. Wanting to specialize further, he underwent hand and upper extremity fellowship training at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

When not seeing patients, Dr. Gayton enjoys waterskiing, hunting, snow skiing, and cheering on the Georgia Bulldogs.
