Weil Foot & Ankle Institute
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.
