Get to know the devoted leadership team of Weil Foot & Ankle Institute.

In 1996, Dr. Lowell Weil Jr. joined forces with Dr. Anthony Borelli, Dr. Wendy Benton-Weil and Dr. Weil Sr. to open Weil Foot & Ankle Institute, the iteration of the practice we know today.  Dr. Weil Jr. completed his M.B.A in 2001, and with this added business acumen, they infused organizational excellence, innovation and perseverance throughout the practice to bring a better offering forward for their patients.

In selecting and inviting leadership to join Weil Foot & Ankle Institute, we have three goals in mind when selecting the ideal candidate.  These shared traits amongst our leadership has fostered an innovative and progressive environment where the end result is better outcomes for our patients. 

  1. Bring great minds together to continue to push forward innovation in podiatric medicine.  
  2. Share the desire to be constantly advancing forward to provide better options and outcomes than other podiatrists (and share that research with the Podiatric Medicine community)
  3. Commit to and support research-led and research-based outcomes
