At our various locations throughout Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin, Weil Foot & Ankle Institute provides comprehensive foot and ankle care and exceptional patient care to our patients. Our podiatry practice located at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois is no different. Dr. Stern, Dr. Alexander, and Dr. Alianello treat their patients like members of their own family. They empathize and see you not just as another patient, but someone who has unique medical situation that is impacting your quality of life. Our doctors will work with you figure out a treatment plan to help you eliminate your foot, heel, and ankle pain. They will also help you enhance your lifestyle so your pain stays at bay.
Our podiatrists at Rush have years of experience in treating a variety of foot and ankle conditions. These include, but are not limited to, arthritis, bunions, corns and calluses, flat feet, heel pain, hammertoe and claw toe, ingrown toenails, toenail fungus, neuromas and all manner of sports-related foot and ankle injuries. Our podiatrists value scientific research and evidence-based practice. They have contributed to numerous research studies in the field of podiatry and keep their board-certifications completely up-to-date.
Our podiatrists are highly skilled in advanced surgical techniques. However, their first priority for you is to treat surgery like a last resort to help you avoid a long, painful recovery period. Instead, our Rush podiatrists will work with you to decide on the best course of treatment, emphasizing conservative, nonsurgical approaches first. This consultative approach to care is what makes WFAI so special. We are here for you every step of the way.
Our podiatry practice at Rush is fully accessible by wheelchair, smoke-free, and we have English and Spanish speaking staff available to make our care as accessible as possible to our patients. We provide important services like medical imaging, as well as extra amenities like air conditioning. We work hard to provide an atmosphere in which our patients can feel comfortable and safe. We care about you – not just your feet.
If you’re ready to take your first step towards better care for your foot and ankle pain, call 847-390-7666 or click “Make an appointment” today. In addition to our in-office appointments, our practice at Rush provides telehealth appointments from your computer or smartphone for your convenience and comfort. We also accept most major insurance plans, because we never want logistical details like health coverage to get in the way of you getting the care you need.
