Kristopher D. Collins, M.D.

Specialties

OrthoVirginia Offices

Dr. Kristopher Collins is passionate about hip and knee reconstruction. He enjoys the process and reproducibility of primary joint replacement and the challenges associated with revision joint replacement. His greatest reward as a physician is seeing his patients return to the activities they love. Time outside of clinic and the operating room is spent developing pathways to decrease patients’ complications and improve patient experience with their joint replacement. Dr. Collins’ interests include reading, fishing, traveling and dining. As a former Eagle Scout he enjoys supporting the Boy Scouts. In his free time he loves to spend time with his wife Meghan and son Grant.
