Dr. Christina Bridges, DPM, a native of San Francisco, California, attended California School of Podiatric Medicine, in Oakland, California. She did her residency training at Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center in Mishawaka, Indiana. During this program she received diverse experiences in all aspects of the foot and ankle.
Dr. Bridges then completed a fellowship, Pediatric and Adult Foot & Ankle Surgical Fellowship, in Atlanta, GA., where she performed various aspects of reconstructive surgery of the foot, ankle and leg, including complex soft tissue derangements and complex fixation techniques.
