Dr. Anthony Borrelli has lived in the Chicagoland area for almost 40 years after being born and raised in New Jersey. After completing his medical and surgical training in the Chicagoland area, he and his wife remained here to raise their two daughters. Dr. Borrelli can lay claim to having resided long enough in the Chicagoland area to experience four of the top five worst snow storms in Chicago history. He now considers himself to be a true Midwesterner.
Dr. Borrelli graduated in the top 25% of his medical school class, attained academic honors, and was awarded the singular honor of Orthopedic Excellence given to the one graduating individual who has exhibited the highest proficiency in Podiatric Orthopedics. Dr. Borrelli completed four years of postgraduate surgical training while serving as Senior Resident during two of those years. Immediately after completion of his residency, Dr. Borrelli served as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Surgery of the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine. In 1988, he returned to the area to begin full time clinical practice with the Weil Foot and Ankle Institute. Dr. Borrelli has lectured throughout the United States and Great Britain and has published widely in medical literature. As his philosophy, Dr. Borrelli believes in well-informed patients who can partner in their care to provide the best outcomes.
Outside of treating patients in the office setting, Dr. Borrelli values a continuation of helping others in his community. He has served, by Mayoral appointment, as a Trustee of the City of Park Ridge Library Board and has twice won elections to the local District 64 Board of Education, where he has served as President of the Board for two terms. Dr. Borrelli led a local committee to raise community awareness and funding to rescue a historic Depression-era mural from neglect. Now restored, this mural can be found on exhibition in the Park Ridge Public Library. Dr. Borrelli is actively engaged with both of his daughters’ activities, including the Local Indian Scout organization, local soccer and dance teams, musical recitals, and academic endeavors.
