    About

    Mr Nicholas Ferran is an orthopaedic surgeon with special expertise in upper limb surgery. He is currently a Consultant in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery and listed on the Specialist Register. Mr Ferran practices at a number of different hospitals and offices throughout London and is fully registered with the General Medical Council to practice.

    Following his MBBS from the University of the West Indies in 2002, Mr Ferran went on to obtain significant post-graduate training and speciality education in the UK. This includes the aforementioned Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery speciality, an MS in Orthopaedic Engineering, and prestigious fellowships at The Prince of Wales and Concord Hospital in Sydney, Australia, and Circle on the NHS in Nottingham, UK.  

    Shoulder and elbow surgery are a passion for Mr Ferran. One of his particular surgical interests is in performing shoulder and elbow surgeries under local anaesthesia when possible, with patients awake. This allows patients to have much shorter post-operative recovery times and avoids the risks of general anaesthesia, which may make surgery otherwise impossible for some patients. In 2017 Mr Ferran treated a 94-year old woman whom received two new shoulders, something that quite simply wouldn't have been possible had it not been for this approach.

    Other common procedures Mr Ferran performs include carpal tunnel surgery, elbow procedures such as tennis elbow repair and elbow arthroscopy, ulnar nerve release surgery, rotator cuff repair surgery, and pretty much any and every surgery or procedure concerning the shoulders.  

    Mr Ferran is fully accredited, highly-rated, and well-educated, with a wealth of practical experience in shoulder and elbow surgery, trauma, and orthopaedic surgery. With multiple practice sites and hospital privileges around London, a consultation or appointment with Mr Ferran is easy and convenient. Don’t suffer from shoulder, elbow, or other upper limb conditions any longer – there are surgical options to repair and improve these problems. Contact Mr Ferran for an appointment today – it might just change your life!

    After a journey of 2 years Mr Ferran immediately understood my situation and offered a solution. He explained everything very clearly in a way that I could understand and feel very relaxed about. On the day of the Operation he again explained everything that was going to happen. The Operation was fascinating to watch and Mr Ferran took me through everything that he was doing. This week I went for my follow up with Mr Ferran and the stitches were out in a minute and the next follow up will be in January. I am very pleased with Mr Ferran's work and all is looking good for the future.

    Dr Ferran was very professional from start to finish. We diagnosed the issue online within a few minutes after months of my first appointment, many previous scans, GP visits, physio and years of increasing pain. Communication was excellent and I was always well informed by Dr Ferran and new what to expect. He confirmed the diagnosis with a scan, we tried steroid injections and then moved onto an Arthroscopic Shoulder Release which was done awake. Information was clearly presented and the system in place works really well for ensuring risks were outlined and well managed. Preparation for the op and the actual surgery went smoothly and I really felt I was in good hands throughout the process. Being awake during the surgery takes away a lot of worries and it is quite interesting to see what is going on and follow what is being done on the screen. During the surgery Dr Ferran is talking through the process and asking questions to ensure I was comfortable and monitoring for any pain or other issues. There was a full surgical team working with him at the time. After care was great and the next couple of days I was amazed to get full mobility back in my shoulder without the old pain. I have some physio work to go still to build and strengthen but look forward to this now the old sharp pain has gone.

    1st Class all round - from the 1st call to Mr Ferran's secretary (she was very friendly and efficient), to my actual treatment by Mr Ferran, I felt listened to, not rushed, my concerns were addressed thoroughly and I never felt patronised. As part of the medical profession myself, I was delighted that my experience as a patient reflected the way things should be - the very best - much appreciated.

    The 'Consultation' consisted of less than 3 minutes of me moving my arm around, I would have expected a more considered and robust examination. Especially considering the prices charged. I was in and out within 10-15minutes, with Zero clarity on why I am in pain and a referral to an expensive MRI scan. Would not recommend.

    Mr Nicholas Ferran

    Firstly thank you for your feedback we take all feedback seriously. We aim to provide 5 start treatment and apologise if on this occasion we fell short in your estimation. We are very sorry you were unhappy with your consultation. We take a history of the problems patients are experiencing and tailor clinical examination to the problem at hand and the amount of pain that is being experienced. Some conditions do need scans to better diagnose the problem and guide treatment and we offer patients a range of locations to have their scans according to their budget. After your consultation we provide letters to you and your GP explaining the consultation and all of this admin is covered by your consultation cost. Do get in touch and we would be happy to discuss this further as your care and treatment is important to us.
