About

Bio

Ejiro Isiorho, DPM, PC grew up in Indiana where he completed his undergraduate education at Indiana University in Bloomington. His medical training took place at the Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in Chicago followed by a three year medical and surgical residency program at the Atlanta Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Atlanta, Georgia. His residency curriculum included presenting lectures at state meetings and regional conferences. The titles and content of the lectures he presented derived from his primary podiatric interests; Acute Achilles Tendon Rupture Repair / Sports Medicine, Surgical Reconstruction of Charcot Neuroarthropathy / Rear-foot Reconstruction and Successful Healing of Traumatic Wound With Use of a Human Fibroblast Derived Dermal Substitute / Wound Care. The experience he gained in the course of pursuing these interests and working with patients has led him to understand the importance of patient education as a fundamental ideology in podiatry practice. After moving to the Portland, Oregon area and joining an established podiatry practice, he noticed that he was helping people, but saw a larger need in the practice. He decided to obtain Corrective Step Foot Health Center with a new patient education centered ideology. With the belief that people should not be talked at but rather explained their conditions and treatment options. With patient education as the main goal, as well as providing optimal care Dr. Isiorho is focused on catering to the needs of each patient he encounters. He and his wife have settled in the area and are raising their new son. Dr. Isiorho and the rest of his clinic would like to welcome you to the new Corrective Step Foot Health Center.

I'm sorry I don't quite understand your answer. Are you saying yes it's pitting edema or yes just because it's a chubby foot. Is it something to be concerned about?
HealthTap member
Thanks for your quick reply! I'm still waitin for MRI results. But my Dr is all familiar wit these injuries. I can walk only for 20 min before feeling sharp pains.
HealthTap member
Thank you, your answer was very helpful! Thankyou, I didn't know there are specialists for foot care. I'l find one now. Thanks again.. :)
