Dr.Nordt is GREAT..I had surgery 19 years ago on my right knee,it was only supposed to have lasted ten years,before having a total knee replacement, but it lasted 19yrs. In 2016 I had a total replacement,on both knees,at the same time...Dr.Nordt didn't want to do both,but I was persistent, and it all worked out WONDERFUL.I can't run in a marathon YET,but I am on my way, THANKS DR.NORDT.,YOU ARE GREAT
Angela - Thank you for taking the time out of your day to write such a kind message. I will be sure to pass along to everyone here. Best, Sarah

Dr. Nordt replaced both of my knees. He was very thorough and explained exactly what I should expect. As another patient said, I cannot imagine having another Ortho surgeon as both he and his staff are fantastic. Have and will continue to recommend Dr. Nordt.
Thank you for sharing your story, Bonnie! We wish you the very best in your future. Warm regards, Sarah

Dr. Nordt was highly recommended by a neighbor whose Mother had a knee replacement with him. My meeting with Dr. Norton went very well and I was looking forward to having him replace my right knee on May 9th. A few days later I realized I would have to change my operation date to May 23 and I called his office at 8;00am on April 5 to speak with Lisa to change the date. I got a voice mail and gave up after calling back 2 more times that day. This morning I called again twice. Got nowhere.

ACL reconstructive surgery and Meniscus repair. Dr. Nordt took his time with me and answered ever questions I had. Believe me, there were A LOT. I am up and back competing again in dog agility. I can't thank Dr. Nordt and all the staff at Ortho Va. for all their help.
Carol - Thank you so much for the amazing words you left! I will be sure to pass along to everyone here. Best, Sarah

I have had multiple knee surgeries (reconstructions and menicus repairs) and a torn rotator cuff, labrum and bone spur repair surgery performed by Dr. Nordt and I cannot imagine EVER having another ortho surgeon! The time he takes to fully explain and make sure the patient understands everything he is recommending and why he is recommending it exceeds any explanation I've ever had before. If you're searching for the BEST ortho surgeon in the Richmond area, look no further...he's right here!

Great Doctor. Listens to your issues and treats you as an individual and not just a number. I've had two surgeries by him and would recommend him 100%

Have had two rotator cuff surgeries done by Dr Nordt, and though a painful surgery and rehab I would never consider any other Dr for future problems. My husband also had rotator repair and we both think he is the greatest as well as his PA and personal staff. Have had some long waits in the past but never minded since we are getting GREAT care. My husband and I are retired seniors and we highly recommend Dr Nordt.

I waited 2+ hours before seeing him. He took xrays and toldme I needed a knee replacement. Then he went on to look at my records and said I didn't need the medicine I was taking. He said he wouldn't give me any pain meds other than what I was on. He said I would be in intractable pain. So he said I was between a rock and a hard place. I tried to explain something to him and he interrupted and said only to talk about my knee. It was related to what I was talking about. I won't go back.

Dr Nordt and his staff take time to explain everything. I had a total knee replacement. As a retired RN and a bit of a wimp, I can be demanding of my care givers. Dr Nordt, his staff and the hospital nurses and PT were truly great!

After blowing out my right ACL in December 2013, Dr Nordt performed surgery February 7th 2014. At age 57 I was religious about my post surgery rehab through Henrico Sports Medicine, and 6 months later began playing hockey again. Two years later I have a stable pain free knee, and played two back to back games last night. I still wear my brace during the games, simply for support from a lateral impact. If my success is a common outcome, I highly recommend Dr Nordt for an ACL repair.

Dr. Nordt has a very efficient practice. My xrays were taken during my visit and were read by Dr. Nordt less than 5 minutes later. He carefully reviewed his findings with me in a very clear manner. Outstanding. Dr. Nordt has excellent communication skills. I was very impressed. A true professional. This was perhaps the best experience I've ever had with respect to an office visit. The staff at the front desk were equally professional and courteous. Highly recommended.

I had both of my knees replaced, two years apart, 2013 and 2015. Both surgeries were done by Dr. Nordt. I wouldn't go to anyone else. Before the surgeries, I saw him for cortisone shots, and when they didn't work anymore, we tried a round of Hyaluronic acid injections. He is smart and kind, and a talented surgeon. His PA and RN are tremendous people and professionals as well. Together, I call them Team Awesome.

Dr. Nordt is one of the finest surgeons our family has used. Over the past 8 years, he has operated on my husband and myself numerous times. Each surgery was always the last resort, not the first as many surgeons recommend. We have total confidence in Dr. Nordt's skills as a surgeon and the pre and post care given by this doctor are beyond what most surgical patients experience. This man is caring and compassionate as well as empathetic with his patients. We think he is the best!
