Dr. Kristin Alves is a fellowship trained pediatric orthopaedic surgeon. A North Carolina native, Dr. Alves received her bachelor's degree from Duke University in Durham, North Carolina and crossed the 8-mile divide for medical school at the University of North Caroline at Chapel Hill. She completed her orthopaedic surgical residency at the Harvard Combined Orthopaedic Surgery Program in Boston, Massachusetts. She then completed her fellowship at Boston Children's Hospital with a focus on lower extremity, limb deformity, neuromuscular care, hip preservation and comprehensive orthopaedic care from infancy through young adulthood.

Dr. Alves' clinical interests include the operative and non-operative treatment of pediatric traumatic injury, conditions of the pediatric lower extremity and pediatric food and ankle conditions.
