Oliver Templeton-Ward - Orthopaedic Surgeon

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon FRCS (Tr&Orth), Knee

Mr. Oliver Templeton-Ward is a consultant trauma and orthopaedic surgeon, specialising exclusively in knee surgery. His practice covers complex reconstructive surgery for sports injuries as well as the latest joint preservation techniques for both early and established knee arthritis.

Mr Templeton-Ward has been fellowship trained in both partial and total knee replacement surgery. These types of surgery include patient-matched, and robotic-assisted, total and revision knee replacement. He has a sub-specialist interest clinic in patellofemoral instability and anterior knee pain. Mr Templeton-Ward also provides a tertiary referral service for complex multi-ligament injury of the knee, and other knee surgeons regularly refer patients to him from around the region.


Mr Templeton-Ward attended Nottingham University Medical School and his surgical and orthopaedic training was carried out in London and the south east of England. Following this he carried out 15 months of sub-specialist knee fellowship training, initially under Mr. Neil Bradley, at Royal Surrey County Hospital Guildford, where he was trained in partial, total and revision knee replacement surgery. He went on to study further in Sydney, Australia, on the internationally recognised and highly sought-after fellowship with Dr. David Wood, President of the Australian Knee Society. This fellowship covered complex multi-ligament reconstruction surgery and patellofemoral instability.
