Maria Bolla, DPM
Dr. Bolla was born in an island in the northeastern Greece, called Chios. She first became interested in medicine at the age of seven. This led her to attend Aristotle University of Medicine in Thessaloniki, Greece. She decided to study in the US since her biggest dream was to become a physician in the States and continue her education. After completing four years of medical school in Greece she decided to transfer to an undergraduate institute and start her pre-medical training. Therefore she attended Simmons College in Boston for her undergraduate studies that she completed in two years with a Bachelor of Science in Biology.
She afterward attended New York College of Podiatric Medicine for her medical training. Her experiences in medical school and external rotations eventually led her to attend the residency program at Boston University Medical Center. She had the privilege and great fortune of training under some of the most distinguished surgeons and diagnosticians during her residency at Boston Medical Center and has continued the tradition of teaching the art of Medicine to the incoming classes of residents and students, through series of lectures and presentations.
It is however her professional demeanor, her empathy, her passion and compassion towards patients, as well as her ability to seamlessly work and communicate with Physicians of all medical and surgical disciplines, that has earned her the distinction of the Chief resident of the department of Podiatry at Boston Medical Center and the stellar recommendations by her peers.
Over the years, Dr. Bolla has demonstrated a passion for research in various fields and disciplines of medicine, ranging from Neurology and Alzheimer’s disease, to ischemic limb preservation and surgical reconstruction of forefoot and rearfoot pathologies.
