    About

    Ms Julie Kohls is a consultant orthopaedic surgeon who qualified in 1996 from the University of Western Ontario, Canada, before moving to the UK in 1999 where she continued her training.  Ms Kohls was awarded the FRCS in Trauma and Orthopaedics by the Royal College of Surgeons in 2007, and has specialised in foot and ankle surgery since then. She also trained for a year at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore, London, and completed a year as the Surrey Foot and Ankle Fellow at the Royal Surrey County Hospital and Frimley Park Hospital.

    Passionate about assessing patients' biomechanics and helping them to improve the way they move and walk to alleviate symptoms and avoid surgery, Julie will always ensure if surgery is necessary, that it is kept to a minimum. She is constantly improving the treatment she can offer as surgical instrumentation and technology moves on, and is a strongly believes that surgery is only the beginning, working hard to make sure patients do the right exercises as part of their recovery to ensure the best possible outcome.

    Outside of surgery Ms Kohls is involved in education, and has a Masters Degree in Surgical Education from the University of Toronto.

    I found Miss Julie Kohls to be very personable and clear in her diagnosis and advice and the appointments were run effectively with no feeling of them being rushed at any point. The surgery undertaken by her was also excellent with everything proceeding as expected.

    “It is exactly a year since Miss Kohls performed the operation on both of my feet. I am having had a right hallux valgus correction for severe hallux valgus and a left forefoot reconstruction for dislocation of the joint. I am delighted with the results of surgery and the care provided following this in helping me recover and keeping me informed as to the recover process and beyond. It is miraculous how well I can now walk and exercises without pain. From my very first visit, I felt very comfortable. The actual surgery itself was as it was described by Miss Kohls and that helped me to relax. Many thanks to Miss Kohls and appreciation to her wonderful team too.”

    Miss Kohls is very compassionate about hearing a patient’s health problem. She listens thoroughly. Then she arranges all necessary tests to be done in order to get the proper picture of the problem, whilst in a meantime you get some exercises so to manage your ongoing pain. You get checked very often how you are coping ie progressing or regressing .... Basically Miss Kohls is excellent! ♥️ Thank you very much for treating my plantar fasciitis and helping me manage throughout the whole last year.
