Dr. Kristen Winters has been practicing in Connecticut since 2000 following the completion of a two year surgical residency at The Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center in Hartford, CT. Now she is an attending there and is dedicated to training podiatric surgical residents and students in foot and ankle surgery.

She has a special interest in podiatric sports medicine as her athletic background is extensive. Her involvement as a division one college athlete at The Pennsylvania State University, member of the U-21 United States national field hockey team and assistant coach of the Penn State women’s field hockey team has naturally led her to now treat and rehabilitate athletes.

Dr. Winters maintains active involvement with the Connecticut Podiatric Medical Association, has served on the executive board of the Johnson Surgical Center and enjoys lecturing throughout the podiatric medical community.
