Dr. Weil Jr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Weil Jr " We treat every patient like they are a member of our family, always considering the best option for each individual person. Patients consistently tell us that our team is the most caring and available physician experience they have ever been a part. I am world renown for procedures that I have pioneered or mastered for the treatment of bunions, hammertoes, toe dislocation and instability, flatfoot repair and heel pain. I am asked to lecture nationally and internationally to podiatrists and orthopedic surgeons on these treatments. Physicians from around the world request to spend time with us in our practice to learn our treatments and surgical techniques. I have published over 50 research papers, book chapters and articles on advanced treatments for foot and ankle problems. I was the Editor of Foot and Ankle Specialist, the only combined orthopedic/podiatric peer reviewed journal in the world. I love making people better and solving their most simple and difficult problems. My grandfather was a physician. My uncle was a physician. My father is a world renown physician. You can say it is in my blood. Listening, problem solving and treating people like they are part of our family is our motto. If you do those things you can always be sure you are recommending the best treatment for patients. I started practice in 1996 after residency training at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate Hospital and Fellowship in Europe. I have taught and attended many courses throughout my career (and do so yearly) to ensure that I am always up to date on most current trends. I attended Vanderbilt University (BA), Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine (DPM), University of Pennsylvania The Graduate Hospital for residency in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery and a rotating Fellowship in Europe. My family is my number one interest. Throughout their younger live I coached and attended different activities for each of my children. I am a passionate golfer and most enjoy spending time with my children and parents. I love to have three generations of family together. I have played competitive platform tennis in the past and I enjoy traveling and cooking with my family. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Weil Jr "I treat each patient as an individual and take the time and effort necessary to understand each individuals problems and needs.  I think of myself as a medical detective, trying to find the solutions that other doctors may not be able to distinguish.  I want to have a personal connection with each patient and I give all patients my email address and cell phone number so they can contact me whenever they need me.  I have been passionate about several areas of foot and ankle problems and done extensive research and pioneered treatments that are now accepted world wide to improve the care of difficult issues.  I have challenged the accepted norms of problems and treatments to provide better outcomes and quicker recoveries.  I have performed thousands of bunion corrections, hammertoe corrections and surgery to correct pain in the bottom of the foot.  Few have treated more patients with heel pain successfully than me."

I already have recommended Dr. Weil to friends . I put off have my bunion and hammer toes fixed for years. I could kick myself for waiting. I am very pleased with the results. I especially appreciated Dr. Weil's suggestions and explanations.
