Jayne Ward decided to become an orthopaedic trauma surgeon after sustaining life-changing injuries while still at Bishops Cleeve comprehensive school. Being a patient herself means she understands the effect an injury can have on patients and their families. She takes pride in delivering patient-centred care and putting the patient and their needs first.
Her undergraduate training was at St Bartholomew’s and The Royal London School of medicine and dentistry. She undertook her specialist Orthopaedic training in the Severn Deanery in Bristol. Her main interest is trauma care, including acute fractures (broken bones) and the ongoing problems with function these devastating injuries can have. Such as decreased movement, infection and wound problems, non-union (bones not healing), ongoing pain and prominent metalwork.
She has undergone international fellowships at the Hospital for special surgery in New York, was awarded an AO fellowship at Groote Schuur in Cape Town. As well as working in a dual credited fellowship combining Orthopaedics and plastic surgery with the military team at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham. Since 2014 she has been a full-time trauma consultant at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire.
Since 2014 she has been a full-time trauma consultant at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire. This is the second busiest major trauma centre in the UK. She has supervised many UK and international trauma fellows and trains junior surgeons daily. She has been a principal investigator for numerous trauma centred national randomized controlled trials and regularly publishes and reviews trauma papers. Her practice primarily involves polytrauma, open fractures (where the bone comes out through the skin) complex fractures around joints and limb reconstruction.
Her national roles include being educational chair for the Orthopaedic Trauma Society. Duties for this include speaking at the British Orthopaedic Association and Trainee Association meetings. She is regularly asked to present internationally on trauma care and is proud to be part of the worldwide AO faculty, chairing their current concepts course.
