  • About

    Physician Bio

    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,
    a dermatologist, with whom he has four young children.

    Dr. Nord has been a team physician for the
    West Coast Conference NCAA Basketball Championships in Las Vegas since 2012.
