Dr. Lowell Scott Weil Sr. founded his eponymous institute in 1965 to treat the foot and ankle ailments of Des Plaines–area patients. Now with 10 practice locations and a staff of 15 podiatrists and surgeons, Weil Foot & Ankle Institute has grown into a recognized network that's seen the soles of more than 100,000 patients. This team utilizes technologies such as MRI, digital radiography, and old-fashioned feet tickling to diagnose conditions ranging from fractures and deformities to ingrown or fungal nails and diabetic neuropathy.
Dr. Weil recently completed a study, and presented it the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, that shows a 63% chance of a nail-fungus treatment clearing a nail as long as there is at least 3 millimeters of clear nail at its base.
As a branch of the not-for-profit Advocate Health Care system, the Advocate Condell Centre Club has filled two 60,000-square-foot locations with fitness amenities for exercisers of all ages and ability levels, captained by professional and welcoming staff members. The club's philosophy follows the Advocate network's holistic approach, taking on a mission of all-over wellness with features for exercise, rehabilitative therapy, sports performance, and spa services. Much like a territorial wolverine, each of the facilities' elements—from a trove of resistance-training machines to a demonstration kitchen for cooking classes—occupies its own specialized area. Lake County magazine and Libertyville Patch have highlighted the club for its weight-loss systems and free training program for cancer patients, respectively.
