He is a Director of North West Fertility, one of the largest and most successful private IVF clinics in the UK, and GyneHealth, a comprehensive multidisciplinary independent sector service for women's health.

Professor Nardo trained in Italy, London and Manchester until he was appointed as an NHS consultant in gynaecology and reproductive medicine at St Mary's Hospital, Manchester where he worked until August 2011. He is a Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) member and accredited subspecialist in reproductive medicine and surgery. He has vast experience in advanced laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery for the treatment of endometriosis, adhesions, fibroids, ovarian cysts, tubal surgery and other benign gynaecological conditions. He performs complex laparoscopic procedures such as myomectomy, hysterectomy and reversal of sterilisation as day case procedures in private hospitals in Manchester and London. Professor Nardo has clinical and academic interests in pelvic pain, menstrual disorders, infertility, assisted conception, gynaecological endocrinology and hysteroscopic management of intrauterine abnormalities (including fibroids, septa and severe adhesions like in Asherman's Syndrome). He has expertise in gynaecological ultrasound scan and management of early pregnancy problems, including recurrent miscarriage, and runs dedicated clinics.

Professor Nardo is a member of the RCOG, and an associate member of many international learned societies, including the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE), the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and the British Fertility Society (BFS).
