AssessMed’s ongoing Assessor Spotlight Series serves to highlight some of the experienced medical professionals we have working with our Canada-wide teams. We take pride in the care with which we choose our assessors, ensuring they are well credentialed, have current clinical experience, and are in good standing with the respective regulatory bodies. All of our assessors are committed to offering high quality, unbiased, and evidence-based medical reports that reflect our professional values.

Dr. Yardley’s Experience

Dr. Nick Yardley is a fully trained Orthopaedic Surgeon receiving his certification from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. He holds a Medical License to practice within the provinces of Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia. Nick is currently running a busy community practice as an Orthopaedic Surgeon at Headwaters Health Care Centre in Orangeville, Ontario. He has a particular area of interest in Arthroscopic Orthopaedic Surgery and holds a fellowship which was obtained from the University of Toronto Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Program and an additional interest in Community Orthopaedic Trauma.

Dr. Yardley’s clinical practice involves assessing a wide variety of elective and traumatic Musculoskeletal Disorders in both paediatric and adult populations. His elective surgical practice is focused primarily on the arthroscopic treatment of shoulder, knee, and ankle disorders.

In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Yardley performs a significant number of Independent Medical Evaluations with a balance between Defence and Plaintiff reports. He prides himself in thorough, clear, objective, and well-written reports and believes appropriate communication between expert and lawyer is critical in ensuring his reports meet such objectives.
