A South Bay doctor and Rolling Hills resident has been inducted into an elite educational body, Kaiser Permanente reported today.
American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons has tapped Dr. Ronald Navarro, regional coordinating chief of orthopedic surgery for Southern California Permanente Medical Group, for membership, which is by invitation-only.
Navarro, who has worked at Kaiser Permanente’s South Bay Medical Center since 1997, was one of only 15 individuals elected to associate membership at the close of 2013. He joins only two other orthopedic surgeons from Kaiser Permanente’s Southern California region.
“My older brother was a certified athletic trainer at a local community college, and watching him work with injured athletes was my first exposure to the field of sports medicine and shoulder care,” Navarro said in a statement.
