Russell M. Nord, M.D.
Dr. Nord is a fellowship-trained Orthopedic Surgeon specializing in Sports Medicine. While, his interests focus on the knee, shoulder and hip, he treats a variety of conditions in both the athlete and non-athlete. Dr. Nord is a firm believer that often, with the appropriate therapy, the body is able to heal itself without surgery. However, when surgery is necessary, Dr. Nord typically elects for an arthroscopic or minimally invasive technique.
Dr. Nord completed his Sports Medicine fellowship at Stanford University where he took care of Stanford athletes and served as a Team Physician for the Stanford Football Team. He also provided orthopedic care for the San Francisco 49ers NFL football team.
Prior to joining Stanford, Dr. Nord completed his Orthopedic Surgery residency at NYU-Hospital for Joint Diseases in New York City, where he was selected Executive Chief Resident during his final year. Dr. Nord received his MD degree from Cornell University, where he was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society and completed his undergraduate work at Duke University where he graduated summa cum laude with membership in Phi Beta Kappa.
Dr. Nord currently serves as Medical Director of the Washington Township Medical Group Sports Medicine Program. In his free time, Dr. Nord is an avid outdoorsman and enjoys a variety of athletic endeavors. He is married to Kristin Nord, a dermatologist, with whom he has three young children.
Dr Nord has been a team physician for the West Coast Conference NCAA Basketball Championships in Las Vegas for the last three years, and has been asked to provide medical coverage for this year's event again (March 3-8, 2016).
