Board Certified by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery and the American Board of Podiatric Medicine
Dr. Oscar Corral is a native of Fort Stockton Texas. Since the fifth grade his father and mother, Oscar and Julie Corral, taught him to love hard work and long hours at Eagle Electric and Refrigeration, the family business. As a young man, however, Corral was always interested in medicine and emergency care. In high school he worked as a Radiology Tech Assistant at a hospital, and at the same time, as a Medical Assistant with a local family physician. He was an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) before graduating high school and volunteered at his home town EMS during his college years in San Angelo. As an EMT he was involved with providing first aid, CPR, basic life support, and advanced trauma life support. In San Angelo, during college, he volunteered at the local hospital emergency room as an EMT and Medical Assistant. Before completing his Bachelors of Chemistry Degree, an accident at the outdoor gun range changed the direction of his medical aspirations. He literally, but accidentally, shot himself in the foot. The podiatrist who treated him was an inspiration and Corral volunteered at this office for several months before graduating college. The experience taught Corral the importance of treating foot and ankle pain and trauma. He received his Podiatry education at the New York College of Podiatric Medicine. His surgical training was a Reconstructive Rearfoot and Ankle Residency at St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx. St. Barnabas is a level one trauma center where Dr. Corral was exposed to foot and ankle trauma, orthopedic trauma, vascular surgery, and orthopedic elective surgery. Corral and his wife moved to the Rio Grande Valley in 2006 to work at Complete Family Foot Care. Drs Caporusso, Bender, and Prukop provided motivation and compassion to treat our patients with the highest level of care and education. Corral became board certified by the American Board of Podiatric surgery and the American Board of Podiatric Medicine.
