Dr. Kristin Cola will be joining our practice this fall after completing her fellowship in pediatric orthopedic surgery at the University of Washington and Seattle Children’s Hospital, where she focused on the surgical and non surgical treatment of the numerous conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system in children.
Prior to her time in the Pacific Northwest, Dr. Cola trained in her home state of Ohio. She attended medical school at Ohio University and then went on to complete her five year orthopedic surgery residency in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. During her time as a resident she served as a leader in many rolls, including president of the resident council and chief resident.
Dr. Cola is looking forward to starting her clinical practice in southwest Florida. Her clinical interests include scoliosis and pediatric spinal deformity, clubfoot, developmental dysplasia of the hip, neuromuscular conditions, skeletal dysplasias, benign tumors, fracture care, and foot and ankle deformity.
