Dr. Leonard Vekkos
Dr. Vekkos has been in practice since 1984. Graduating from the Pennsylvania College of podiatric medicine in 1982, Dr. Vekkos moved to the Midwest completing a two year residency in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery. He served as the chief podiatric surgical resident during his second year. After completing his education, Dr. Vekkos went into private practice and has developed a reputation in the Chicagoland area as a caring, experienced and accomplished podiatric physician and surgeon. For the past 25 years, he has established a very busy general podiatric practice and has developed a keen interest in reconstructive surgery for foot and ankle deformities. He is currently working specifically to advance the treatment of flatfoot conditions in children and adults.
Dr. Vekkos opened the Foot and Ankle Wellness Center in the Seven Bridges professional building complex in Woodridge Illinois. The office is staffed by a most caring and knowledgeable group of professionals whose attitude directly reflects that of Dr. Vekkos. They have established a friendly, welcoming atmosphere geared toward the entire family. The office also boasts the latest advances in technology such as digital radiography, diagnostic ultrasonography, a fully equipped state of the art operating room and a private foot spa called Wellness for the Sole.
Dr. Vekkos is actively involved in the training of podiatric residents as a way of giving back to the profession that has supported him and his family for the past 25 years. He maintains staff privileges at Edward Hospital, Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital, Rush Copley Medical Center and Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital. In addition to his own surgical facility (Seven Bridges Surgical Facility), he also performs surgery at several local ambulatory surgical facilities throughout the area.
