Dr. Bob Weil Podiatric Medicine, Orthotics and Sports Medicine.
Has worked with Olympic athletes in all sports. Worked with Bill Buckner on his ankle issues. National Fitness Hall of Fame. Author and Radio Host. 30 years on the radio The Sports Doctor is in! Greetings! Let me take the opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Dr. Robert Weil, D.P.M. specializing in podiatric medicine, orthotics and sports medicine. I’ve written a column for the Naperville Sun and Aurora Beacon since 2007 as “The Sports Doctor”. My goal is to provide sports medicine information to athletes, their families, coaches and all readers. Additionally, I host a weekly radio show, “The Sports Doctor” on bbsradio.com. I address current topics in medicine and sports and often include guest speakers who bring a wealth of knowledge from their various professional backgrounds. I’ve worked with prominent local athletes, including 2010 Olympic Figure Skating champion Evan Lysacek, four-time IHSA state tennis champ and former UCLA player Liz Lumpkin, and the 2010 girl’s state tennis champion Jasmine Minor. Many of the top volleyball players at Sports Performance in Aurora have sought my services as well as top athletes in all sports. Many of my patients are active and recreational athletes like you and me. Foot screenings and an analysis of how an athlete walks and runs, the shape of their legs and the strength and range of motion can be incredibly helpful. I offer free screenings at my office as well as at Edward Health and Fitness Center at Seven Bridges in Woodridge and New Balance Naperville. I will address a variety of issues and topics on this website and I invite you to visit the site again to learn more about the role of the foot in sports, common foot and foot related injuries, and information in all aspects of sports medicine.
