Have you had or are you planning to have surgery with Miss Julie Kohls?
Do you think that you will need to make the decision to have surgery during your next consultation?
August 2020 I am pleased to Announce that I am joining the One Orthopaedics Team as the group's specialist Foot & Ankle Surgeon!
Covid 19 update:
Face to Face Appointments and Video appointments are both possible
If you would like a video appointment my office will arrange one. It is possible for you to demonstrate enough on a video link that the problem can be identified. Correct imaging can then be arranged before a face to face consultation.
Anyone needing to come to hospital can be assured that there are regular Covid swabs for staff and surgical patients. All staff and patients wear masks and there are temperature checks in place.
New in 2020!

Committed to Clinical Excellence in Foot and Ankle Surgery
Outstanding results need more than the latest surgical techniques and cutting edge technology. Clinical excellence also requires clear communication from your surgeon and a partnership between you the patient, your physiotherapist and your surgeon.
The quicker you have all of your investigations the quicker you will have a management plan. Our usual goal is to see you as quickly as possible in clinic and to aim to turn around your imaging and follow up within one week.
For some patients hectic work schedules necessitate a one stop consultation together with imaging. A one stop consultation is a fantastic option for the end of the day commute home. To plan a one stop consultation, we require a referral letter with enough information to plan the imaging required and lead time to schedule imaging just ahead of your appointment. We will normally be looking to organise X-rays together with either an Ultrasound or an MRI scan.
