“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.“

    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!

    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.

    I had an online video appointment with Mr Ferran on Monday evening 06/07/2020. It was 2nd appointment with him and although it was online instead of in person like the last time I found him to be just as professional as the previous appointment. Mr Ferran is very thorough in his assessment and in recommending follow up scans ASAP before he makes his final decision. I found him to be very polite and professional. I would highly recommend Mr Ferran to anyone I would speak to that would require his expertise. Regards. Mrs Maureen Osayi

    I was impressed with the video meeting. Using Teams to share screens and explain an MRI scan was very useful. Mr Ferran took me through the scan, explained his recommended course of action and I had lots of time to ask questions and discuss options. Given the time saved travelling to/from a clinic, this is a far better and easier option.

    Dr Ferran was very attentive to my explanation of the problem. He took time to examine me and to go through the radiologist notes and my MRI file, then gave me a feedback (and prepared a thorough and clear summary for my GP with an action plan) that makes sense. I was struggling for 6 months between over-the-phone physio and GP with no results, worrying over my condition (having internet as the only source of information) while potentially putting myself at risk waiting for the right referral the right diagnosis and treatment.I regret now not having met Dr. Ferran immediately after the injury. Highly recommended!

    Explained results and next steps clearly, examination was quite thorough. However I wasn't too well versed in some of the aspects of diagnosis and as such failed to fully appreciate what was being said and the benefit of the proposed treatment plan; which clouded my judgement slightly and had to do some further research on my way home. When I did, I understood a little more and then re-contacted to sort the relevant bits out so may have been beneficial at the time to have explored the comprehension of what was being said; however in a limited appointment time I recognise its difficult to fully cover things. Overall I am happy with everything so far and would recommend if needing a shoulder specialist

    I suffered with Distal Clavicle Osteolysis for over 7 months before I saw Nick (i never knew i had it). Within a few minutes of the first consultation with Nick, he told me that I had DCO and gave his professional advice on it but also referred me to do a scan. He showed scanned results and explained them thoroughly and answered all questions/concerns I had. I completely trusted Nick and his vast knowledge on the injury was incredible. After only four sessions, I am now back in the gym. I cannot thank him enough for his support and genuine care. The whole process was seamless and easy, from booking my appointments to getting referred - would highly recommend.

Truly professionals with a first class service from the first consultation throughout the surgery and discharging. He has been open and transparent from the outset, while during the surgery the team constantly looked after me kept me informed on what was happening and most important, I did not feel any pain whatsoever so if I could give the team 10 stars out of 5 I would. Also, a massive thank you to the Anaesthetist and everyone involved for the pain-free experience, a top class performance so thank you Mr Ferran and to your team for the excellent service provided.
