LAWRENCE O. WARD

Lawrence O. Ward, DPM, FACFAS came to Farmington, NM in 2006 after finishing a three year residency in foot and ankle surgery. This residency was completed in Farmington Hills, Michigan. His area of specialty is foot and ankle surgery, but conservative care is always emphasized before going forward with any surgical procedure.

Most common surgeries performed include

Bunion Surgery / Hammertoe correction / Flatfoot Reconstruction / Foot and Ankle trauma / Ankle Fusions / Pediatric Foot Surgery / Diabetic limb Salvage Surgery

Dr. Ward has extensive training in
diabetic limb salvage and complications. 

 

He was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, and was always interested in medicine, but realized that his talents were best suited for surgery. He worked with his father who was a carpenter and this prepared him well for the manual dexterity needed for difficult surgical procedures.
