Dr. David Gayton retired from his medical practice in 2015 after nearly 40 years of practice and research in internal and geriatric medicine. David obtain a BSc, PhD, and MD from the University of British Columbia and was a post-doctoral fellow of the Open University, Oxford, England.
David held various academic appointments at McGill University for over 20 years and published extensively in a variety of areas but focused primarily on the elderly. Funding for the research came from both industry and government. In 1997, Dr. Gayton moved back to BC with the Fraser Health Authority to develop geriatric services in the region. This included a continence clinic in White Rock and thus he has first-hand experience of the huge impact that urinary incontinence (UI) has on the older population. Dr. Gayton joined the medical advisory committee in 2015.
