Kristin Wingfield

MD

Sports medicine specialist

Dr. Kristin Wingfield is a sports medicine specialist who cares for patients of all ages with all types of athletic injuries, including acute injuries (those that occur suddenly) and those resulting from overuse. Her experience in caring for elite athletes, dancers and performing artists informs her daily practice, as she seeks to help all her patients recover from injuries as quickly as possible and return safely to the activities they love.

Wingfield earned her medical degree at the University of British Columbia Faculty of Medicine in Vancouver and completed a residency in family medicine at St. Paul's Hospital. She completed a sports medicine fellowship at Stanford Medicine.

In addition to caring for patients at UCSF, Wingfield is team doctor for the San Francisco Ballet, Marin Academy and Twenty20 women's professional cycling team. At the 2010 Whistler Winter Olympics, she provided care at the medical clinic for athletes and staff. She has traveled to alpine skiing World Cup events as a team doctor for Canada, served as team doctor for the Canadian women's basketball team, and was Canada's team doctor at the 2003 FINA World Aquatics Championships in Barcelona. As a medical student, she worked with the Canadian medical team at the 2000 Sydney Summer Olympics.

A lifelong athlete, Wingfield has been a member of the Canadian national gymnastics team, an elite springboard diver and a professional acrobat in Cirque du Soleil. Now that she has three young sons, she stays active closer to home in Mill Valley.
