Lawrence O. Ward, DPM

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.

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