Dr Akporotu Biography

 

Akpobo Akporotu, MD, is a graduate of Ross University School of Medicine.  His training includes completion of medical school followed by a residency in Internal Medicine and then specialty training in Nephrology/ Hypertension.  He trained in internal medicine at St. John’s Episcopal Hospital in New York City in affiliation with SUNY Downstate Medical Center, followed by Nephrology training at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School in Newark New Jersey in affiliation with the Veterans Affairs Medical System. Dr Akporotu has keen focus in renal physiology, fluid and electrolyte balance, acute and chronic kidney disease diagnosis and management, hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, continuous renal replacement therapy, post renal transplant management, also diagnosis and management of various types of hypertensions.  He is American Board of Internal Medicine certified in internal medicine and nephrology.

Dr. Akporotu was Chief Fellow of Department of Nephrology and Hypertension at Rutgers New Jersey School of Medicine.  He conducted a QI project to improve door to EKG time in patients presenting with chest pain to the Emergency room at St. John’s Episcopal Hospital.  He published a short report regarding moderate hyponatremia from excessive peritoneal icodextrin exposure, in Journal of International Society of Peritoneal Dialysis.  He has affiliations with American Society of Nephrology, and American College of Physicians.

Being born and partly raised in Nigeria, moving here to the United States, and living in several states including New York, New Jersey, Illinois, and Florida has given Dr Akporotu a unique cultural awareness and appreciation which he brings to the bedside and hopefully an important tool to foster a rewarding engagement with the natives of the Inland Empire.

Dr. Akporotu in his spare time enjoys playing/watching soccer, traveling, working out and biking.
