Kelly John, DPM, MHA
I would like to take this opportunity to tell you more about myself and my experience in healthcare. I am originally from Amery, Wisconsin, and I earned my undergraduate degree at the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph, Minnesota. I continued my studies and obtained my Master of Health Administration at Des Moines University- College of Health Sciences and a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine at Des Moines University – College of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery in 1999.
Following graduation, I completed my podiatric surgical residency at Broadlawns Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa, and Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut. I have more than four years of post-graduate residency training in podiatric medicine and surgery, and I joined OrthoIllinois in Spring of 2005.
My practice is focused on foot surgery and podiatric clinical services, with a special interest in revision foot surgery. It is my mission to provide you excellent service, as well as compassionate care. I always strive to provide you the same high-quality podiatric care that I would offer to a member of my family. Ortho Illinois holds a commitment to the advancement of medical education and participates with a number of institutions to help train medical students and residents. As part of your experience today, you may be seen by a podiatry resident.
In addition to my extensive medical commitments, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Jeff, and two children. I also enjoy working out, downhill skiing, and keeping updated on current events.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do to further improve your experience at Ortho Illinois. My goal is to provide you the best podiatric care available.
I am looking forward to meeting with you!

Dr. John is a very caring doctor and all the staff I have had interactions with have also been very caring. They all listened patiently to my symptoms and progress during healing.
