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!

Friendly, professional, thorough and very very helpful. Thank you.
Professional service-great communication regarding shoulder dislocation and future treatment.
Excellent explanation of possible causes of my issue and immediate action plan. Treatment to be decided but so far highly recommended.
Dr Ferran listened to all the issues I had and then did a series of examination to check the issue. He told me what he thought was happening and recommended a few diagnostics that needed to be done, after which he will let me know what line of treatment would be best! He is very friendly and definitely made me feel comfortable.
I found Mr Ferran extremely knowledgeable and explained my issue in a way I could understand.
Mr Ferran is very very knowledgeable and has the best interest of the patient at heart…
Described issue, options and the associated risks and benefits very clearly. provided useful links to comprehensive information on the options, treatments etc. Looked for non surgical solutions first which I tried. When these did not resolve the problem he again reminded me of the benefits/risks associated with surgery. Answered all questions well. Having the surgery using a local block was interesting to experience (not an issue being awake and observing) and meant I was back working within a few hours.
Mr Ferran immediately instilled confidence and put my mind at ease.
I have had 2 shoulder operations August 2021/and August 2022 with Nick under awake surgery, both have been successful together with my physio I'm working on Nicks protocol and today seeing Nick for my 3month check up . Everything has worked out so well I'm getting stronger and Nick has been a great part off the journey. So professional very knowledgeable and very welcoming
Friendly & approachable, mr Ferran listened to all my concerns and gave quality advice. Clearly very experienced, I was relieved to speak to someone who really understands my injury and is concerned about ensuring I get the right treatment.
