I think lays to rest any suspicion that the elder Taylor Floyd was too old to be practicing surgery in 1988. The link goes to a google book and describes being treated (surgically) for cancer by Taylor Floyd in 1996. Taylor had a son named Taylor Floyd, Jr.. Somewhere in the thread someone said that the son took over the father's practice. I think that is likely false. The father was a cancer surgeon. The son was a urologist. But it looks to me as if Taylor Floyd the oncology surgeon was still performing surgery as late as 1996. I'm a little surprised as I think he died in 2007 at age 89. To be performing surgery in his late seventy's seems improbable. His obituary says he stopped practicing surgery in 1984: but I guess he had an administrative position at St. Joe's in ABQ. It is a unclear to me at this point.

EDIT: I contradict myself in this post. It started out seeming like it laid to res the suspicions about Taylor Floyd but as I dug deeper it got murkier.

Many surgeons and pilots work well into their 60s. Lots of Presidents have been over 70.
