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.

Gene Aiello, a doctor of chiropractic and licensed acupuncturist, works alongside a talented team of three to aid patients at Advanced Chiropractic Care and Acupuncture, Ltd.

The information they glean allows Drs. Aiello and John Kim to create treatment plans that include low-force chiropractic techniques, several physical therapies, and massage, among other services. Allergy testing also plays its part—using kinesiology, Dr. Aiello can use a laser acupuncture treatment to desensitize the patients, finally allowing them to play in freshly cut grass or see why freshly cut grass isn’t a popular ice-cream flavor.
