  • The Jordan Young Institute is an amazing collaboration of some of the best neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, physiatrists, and physician assistants that the east coast, has ever seen!
    I personally have dealt with all the above at JYI.

    Starting with an Emergent situation that Dr. Scott Horn was so quickly able to identify & diagnosis my care to Dr. David Vincent who so selflessly responded in less than 24 hours to expedite with precision and amazing skill, emergency surgery on my lumbar spine. I’ve made a 110% recovery. Thanks to these amazing gentlemen!

    I’ve also seen Dr. James Dowd and his Physician Assistant Tamaryn Parks PA-C, for more separate reasons. They both helped to guide me through some degenerative knee issues and was able to avoid surgery. Dr. James Dowd has first class knowledge in his field and comes widely recommended from his peers. Tamaryn Parks PA-C is equally amazing in the prevention of medicine that was suggested for my treatment. I am only able to share such amazing words because everyone I mentioned above is amazing! Thank you JYI.

  • Explained things very well. Very matter of fact which is what I like. Alleviated some of my medical concerns. Left time for questions. Highly recommend.


    LM
  • Jordan-Young Institute’s reputation as a highly regarded orthopedic practice draws in first-time patients, but it was the quality of care I received throughout my first hip replacement that made JY my choice for the second. I was fortunate to have my pre- and post-op care managed by Dr. Dowd’s PA, Tamaryn Tribolet. She is friendly and very knowledgeable, and conveys a sincere interest in helping her patients achieve a successful outcome.

Thank you Dr. Griffin you are awesome not to mention give a high five for his staff who also delivers excellent services.

    Also, another amazing Doctor who is very skilled and knowledgeable working in this facility is Dr. Neil Harrison. He deserves more than the five stars given. Dr. Harrison is always willing to assist and he takes pride in his work. I am proud of the decision made to choose this facility and to have both providers handling my medical emergencies.

    DA
  • I am a former NFL player, and have a lot of wear and tear on my body. My former NFL team Dr. recommended that I see Dr. Griffin when I tore my bicep. It was the worst bicep tear either of them had ever seen. Dr. Griffin surgically repaired my bicep, and within less than a year I have full range of motion and mobility without any limitations. I came back even stronger after my surgery, which I thought would never be possible. With playing football for 20 plus years, this wasn't my first surgery and I know it won't be my last. I will always trust Dr. Griffin and his team with any of my orthopedic needs in the future.

  • This was my 2nd knee replacement done by Dr. Dowd. During my follow-up by Tamaryn, she answered questions I had before I could ask them. Things like a timeline until swelling is completely gone, and how surgery was done and how that contributes to a specific pain in a specific area. I left this appointment feeling very informed. Good job, Tamaryn!!


    CG

  • Wonderful staff and doctors work at Jordan Young. Megan Hare was professional and figured out the problem almost immediately. She had a couple of treatment options and listened to my dads concerns before deciding on the best plan. We are very pleased with this practice. Thank you Megan for all your help.


    DR
  • Dr. Robinson and his staff were outstanding. He took the time to explain in detail the positives and negatives of all of my options without me feeling at any time that he was trying to 'direct' my decision. In the past I have been seen by other orthopedic physicians, not a part of the Jordan-Young Institute, and was struck by the comparison, with my visit to Dr. Robinson being significantly more professional and informative.


    SF
  • Short wait for post op appointment, x rays taken, sutures out, saw and chatted with Neil about all of my surgical pictures and post op regimen. I was in and out within 30 minutes. This practice has continued to impress me, with their prompt response; via portal, call back or email. I’ve referred many people here. Being a fellow healthcare worker, you really look for the extra touch and experience. 5 star!

  • The entire staff was incredibly kind and helpful, and the facility operated like a well oiled machine. Dr. Griffin was very knowledgeable and professional, and set my mind at ease.

  • Dr. Bonner has the best bedside manner of any physician I've ever visited. He is professional, courteous, and actively listens as I talk about my experiences regarding my problem area (shoulders), and offers practical advice to improve my situation, as well as options for treatment over time. It made me happy that he was reluctant to immediately operate, and wanted to try some other healing methods first. I have already recommended him to other people I know. He is a credit to the Jordan-Young Institute and to the medical professional overall.


    TC

My very first visit with Justin Griffin confirmed I was at the right place as he spent quality time with me and ensured my questions were answered. His staff Hannah and Jordan have also been extremely helpful both pre and post operative. The morning of my surgery I was pleased to meet Travis McLaughlin, PA as she introduced herself and added another level of confidence. My follow up appointment was also with Travis as she went into detail with me regarding specifics of my surgery, removed my stitches and answered any questions I had. I am completely comforted and trusting with the care provided to me by this exceptional team!

  • If you have a bad knee, book yourself an appointment with Dr. Jordan .. our experience with him dates back to 2012 when my wife had a double-knee replacement done. She couldn't pick the 'worst knee" and Dr. Jordan agreed to do the "double". She had a great recovery .. unbelievably fast - got back on the golf course in 3 months +/- and (I won't mention her age; not that dumb!!) is still walking 9/playing 18 almost 10 years later.

    My right knee finally gave up the ghost and I had a Jordan replacement in March of this year. I was back playing 18 after two months and six weeks later shot my age .. twice in a week! Needless to say, the recovery went very well.

    The constant in both my wife's and my recovery was Nurse Practitioner Angela Rivera .. an exceptional individual. She was also the one giving me my 3-month shots for almost two years until I decided to get the replacement before I was too old to walk, regardless of knee condition. Full of understanding and empathy, good with the needle, and very helpful with meeting my meds' and rehab needs, you couldn't find a better care-giver.

  • A five star doctor. I was seen in timely manner and treated with extreme professionalism. Dr. Babington and his nurse Gina were sympathetic with me and took their time to see that I had all the resources needed to continue my journey with pack pain. Gina his nurse deserves a pay raise she went above and beyond with seeing I had all prescriptions before leaving, she returned phone calls immediately or within the same business day and you could feel her smile through her mask.

  • I needed my left hip replaced in 2013 at Portsmouth Naval Hospital. The Orthopedist who operated on me was Commander Joseph Gondusky. He told me at the time I'd probably need to have my left hip replaced within a decade. Flash forward to 2019. I was experiencing severe pain in my right hip. Dr. Gondusky was now a civilian with the Jordan Young Institute. I was extremely fortunate to get a consult with him. He had done wonders with the previous hip surgery, and I was very confident he could do it again. He got me on the schedule within a month, and I got another new hip in November 2019. Now, a year later, I have no hip pain at all! I owe it all to Dr. Gondusky and the Jordan Young Institute . They should be your first choice for any orthopedic procedures!


    BJ
  • Teresa Brooks recommends Jordan Young Institute for Orthopedic Surgery & Sports Medicine. Just now · I had 2 massive tears in my rotator cuff along with bone spurs and a massive tear in my bicep tendon. I was recommended to Jordon Young Institute and specifically Dr. Kevin Bonner. Dr. Bonner explained to me that my shoulder was very ugly as my tendons were so shredded from an accidental fall on 8/25/19. Dr. Bonner & PA Gill did my surgery on 10/21/19. Every step of the way, they have truly been amazing. I am now 16 weeks post-op & have been in physical therapy for 2 1/2 months with at least 6 weeks more to go for strength training. My physical therapist said my improvement was remarkable. Thanks so much to Dr. Kevin Bonner, PA Gill and the entire team!!


    TB
  • I am pain free after synovial cyst removal and L4-5 fusion by Dr. Laurent. Six weeks after surgery, I am walking 6-7 miles a day, walking up stairs and exercising on the elliptical at the gym. Dr. Laurent and his PA Sean were active listeners and addressed all of my concerns prior to surgery. I was discharged from the hospital 24 hours after surgery remarkably pain free. I would choose Dr. Laurent again if I needed surgery.


    PJ
  • Sara (Dr. Levi’s Physician Assistant) is patient, compassionate, phenomenal and one of the best with a needle! They are an amazing team!

  • After suffering through two shoulder surgeries to repair a torn rotator cuff in my right shoulder in the past one and a half years, I met with several doctors in my area for "second opinions" only to be turned away. I was given Dr. Bonner's name and made an appointment to see him. I traveled 4 hours from Maryland for my appointment and it was worth every mile on the road! From the time I signed in, the staff treated me with kindness and respect and were eager to help. Within 5 minutes of being taken to the exam room the nurse took an X-ray and then Dr. Bonner and his intern came in. Dr. Bonner did a very thorough examination, which lasted over an hour, and for the first time I had hope! Dr. Bonner knew I was in severe pain and had very little mobility of my primary arm. He said he could do the surgery on my shoulder and scheduled me right in.

    I owe my future to Dr. Bonner because if it wasn't for him, I'd have the use of only one arm. He took the time to examine me, and the records from my two previous surgeries, and put together a plan. He operated on me to repair my torn rotator cuff, which was complicated by an "anchor" that had fallen out from the previous surgery I had in Maryland. I could tell within three days after Dr. Bonner operated that it was a success! There were no complications and the scars are barely visible. I'd just like to say to anyone who's been told by a orthopedic doctor "there's nothing they can do," go see Dr. Bonner at the Jordan-Young Institute in Virginia Beach, VA. I have to say that from the moment I walked into his office I knew I finally was in the right place!

    Dr. Bonner is kind, caring and compassionate and his skills as an orthopedic surgeon are second to none! He truly cares about every patient and his mantra is "to get you back to your life before your injury," and in my case he did just that and I am forever grateful.

  • After a career in the USMC and two previous shoulder surgeries, still with constant pain and lack of mobility, I was referred to Dr. Griffin. After reviewing my history, numerous images and several injections (over a period of 2 years) we decided shoulder replacement was my best option. I, of course, was dreading this decision. I had full confidence in Dr Griffins' decision and abilities but wanted other opinions. After traveling to Baltimore and visiting with a surgeon at Towson, I returned to Dr Griffin with even more confidence in Dr Griffin. We then scheduled the procedure for 17 Jan of 2019. The surgery and entire evolution at Sentara went better than I could have ever imagined. Within 3 or 4 days, I had less pain in my shoulder than I'd had in many years. Following 6 weeks of Rehab at JYI I was released to exercise and strength train on my own. I continued to stretch, exercise and strengthen my shoulder for 6 months. I recently saw Dr Griffin for my 6 month follow up and couldn't be happier. I am able to perform movements, exercises and activities with my shoulder that I haven't been able to perform in many, many years. I literally have a new shoulder. I would highly recommend anyone suffering for shoulder pain to visit Dr Griffin and follow any recommendations that he offers. My wife is now seeing Dr Griffin for her shoulder pain. I would also recommend anyone looking for or needing any physical rehabilitation to visit the amazing team at JYI Rehabilitation. I can't thank Dr Griffin, his amazing team and of course JYI Rehab team enough. My only regret is that I didn't see Dr Griffin many years ago.

  • I’m a competitive powerlifter and train year-round with heavy squats and other movements. I was experiencing some hip and elbow pain with training. I tried what my primary care doctor recommended which included rest for 4 weeks and taking anti-inflammatory meds. I wasn’t healing or getting the relief I needed no matter how much I avoided those movements. I contacted Dr. Horn because since he works with athletes who have these issues and I needed help. He suggested trying PRP injections. I underwent 2 hip treatments and an elbow treatment. I had excellent results and was able to continue my training and get stronger throughout the year. I highly recommend the procedure to anyone who is experiencing pain and joint issues

  • The stem cell treatment I had for my shoulder from Dr. Horn far exceeded my expectations. Before the treatment I was struggling with any shoulder exercises and the pain was keeping me up at night due to a rotator cuff tear. Pushups are no longer a problem and I sleep through the night. The increase in range of motion and decrease of discomfort in the shoulder started within about 2-3 weeks of the treatment and improved steadily over the next 6 months. Well worth it!

  • I am an active 38 year old with knee pain due to some early arthritis. Dr. Horn performed a PRP injection on my right knee because I was having pain with exercising. While I still have some pain here and there, I would say it’s about 80-90% improved and I am able to weight train and run with minimal pain. I will definitely look at the procedure again in the future if I have issues with the knee or other joints.

  • Stem cell injections in my low back from Dr. Horn was a life saver. I had chronic low back pain. I work as a mechanic, which requires a lot of bending and getting into weird positions. I tried steroid injections, physical therapy, medications, and a chiropractor with no improvement. I found Dr. Horn who injected my L5 disc with my own stems cells from my hip. After a few months, I am off my pain medicine, moving better, and my wife says I’m in a much better mood!

  • I have bad arthritis in my wrists and thumbs. Cortisone injections were working at first, but they seemed to work less as time went on. My orthopedic surgeon suggested possible fusion, but he thought I should talk with Dr. Horn first to see what other non-surgical options were out there. Dr. Horn explained that I could try using my body’s platelets to help with my pain and arthritis, which I decided to try. I’ve had to get an injection once a year for the past few years, but am happy I have not had to have surgery!

  • Dr. Levi got rid of my hip pain-which I had for 4 years! I had seen 2 other doctors. First we tried a steroid injection into my bursitis. The pain came back 4 months later. Dr Levi did PRP on my hip tendon and now the pain has been gone for 2 years!
  • Before I saw Dr. Levi, I had two steroid shots for my tennis elbow which did not help much. I spent 3 months in physical therapy. I saw Dr. Levi and he did an ultrasound and could see tears in the tendon. He did a procedure called PRP with my own blood. It worked! It is the first time in years I can do everything without my elbow pain. I can even paint again.
  • I have really bad knee arthritis. Bone on bone. I really did not want a knee replacement. I tried other shots but nothing lasted more than a week or two. We decided to try PRP. It is not perfect but it is much better. I can play golf again-and walk!
  • When I first came to APM I thought there was nothing that could be done for me. I couldn’t walk upstairs because of my hip. I couldn’t sleep on that side. I couldn’t walk my dog at night which I love to do. We tried a steroid injection which worked much longer than the others I had before. He used an ultrasound to show him where to put the needle. When it came back we talked a lot about options. He let me make the decisions. We decided on trying a healing type of treatment PRP which used my own blood. This worked so well. I can sleep! I can do anything now without it hurting. I can’t thank Dr. Levi enough.
  • My family doctor referred me to Dr Levi. He gave me years of relief with steroid injections once a year. When that stopped working and they wanted to replace my hip I wouldn’t do it. He suggested we try the blood concentrate into my hip with ultrasound. I did it and am so happy. I can walk upstairs much better and still get around shopping.
  • I struggled for years with my hamstring. I thought it was sciatica. Other doctors told me it was as well. Dr Levi did a bunch of tests and it turns out it was my hamstring. We did PRP to the tendon and I got my life back. No more pain. I would recommend Dr Levi to anyone
