Louis Nordeen, DPM
Dr. Louis W. Nordeen, DPM, FACFAS has been practicing in Mechanicsville, VA for the past 17 years. He performs surgeries at Bon Secours-St. Mary's Hospital, Bon Secours-Memorial Regional Medical Center, Henrico Docotor's Hospital, as well as doing many Outpatient surgical procedures.
He is Board Certified by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery (ABFAS). He performs all phases of foot and ankle elective surgery and emergency surgery. Elective surgeries include: hammertoe correction, bunion correction, surgery for Achilles' tendon pain, to name just a few. Another area of expertise for Dr. Nordeen is surgical correction of flatfoot deformity, in both pediatric patients as well as the discipline of adult reconstruction. His more extensive surgical skills lie in the treatment of diabetic ulcers and infections, ankle fractures, calcaneal fractures, metatarsal fractures, and tendon/ligament ruptures.
Dr. Nordeen received his foot and ankle surgical residency training at the Midwestern Regional Medical Center in Zion, IL. The podiatry residents were the only residents in the hospital(of any medical specialty) and thus were on call for all emergencies.
In college, Dr. Nordeen earned Big South All-Conference honors in 1988 as a member of the Coastal Carolina University Cross Country Team. He had been All- Upper Peninsula (Michigan) and All-Region as a high school runner. After earning his athletic scholarship to Coastal, he continued to improve throughout his college career. He treats many athletes of all sports and of all levels, and promotes injury 'prevention', as his number one goal. Being an athlete, Dr. Nordeen does take a special interest in Sports Medicine.
As a Fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, Dr. Nordeen is continually updating his education and technological advances. He takes this on as a lifelong learning process. He truly feels that this enriches his podiatric practice and ultimately the outcomes of his patients. Surgery is not indicated for every patient, and it is the great surgeon who can do his best to treat foot and ankle problems conservatively first.
