About me

Nicholas Ward was born in Leicestershire, educated at Loughborough Grammar School and went to Leeds Medical School. He joined Frimley Park Hospital in September 2010 as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon specializing in foot & ankle surgery. He graduated from Medical school in 1996 and having joined the army spent 2 years in Germany looking after the soldiers and families of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards. He has subsequently served as an orthopaedic surgeon in Northern Ireland, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and South Sudan.

He carried out his basic surgical training at Frimley Park Hospital, before entering higher specialist orthopaedic training in Wessex & Oxford. He is fellowship trained, having undertaken specialist foot & ankle fellowships in Oxford, at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, and in Portsmouth. He has lectured on foot & ankle surgery both nationally and internationally. He has published papers both on foot & ankle surgery and trauma within international journals.

His special interests are in arthroscopic surgery, forefoot surgery (bunions, arthritis, neuromas etc), foot & ankle sports injuries, heel pain, and general arthritic conditions throughout the foot and ankle. He covers all aspects of foot & ankle surgery in his NHS practice, and is part of a multi disciplinary team involved with treating diabetic foot problems. He is a member of the British Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society (BOFAS), the British Orthopaedic Association (BOA), and the Combined Services Orthopaedic Society (CSOS).

Nicholas is married with three children. He enjoys running, skiing, gardening and clay pigeon shooting, when his three children permit!
