Dr. Nord is a board-certified Orthopaedic Surgeon and Sports Medicine Physician
who is the Medical Director of Washington Sports Medicine. While his interests
focus on the knee, shoulder and hip, he treats a variety of conditions
in both athletes and non-athletes in his Fremont, CA office where he has
been in practice since 2009. 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 minimally
invasive or arthroscopic technique and uses modern, well-proven methods.
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 orthopaedic care for
the San Francisco 49ers NFL football team.
Prior to joining Stanford, Dr. Nord completed his Orthopaedic 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 Hospital
Sports Medicine Program. In his free time, Dr. Nord enjoys spending time
with his family, sports, and the outdoors. He is married to Kristin Nord,
