Dr Navarro performed laparoscopic hernia surgery on me about 8 months ago. His manner was terrific, as he is friendly and very personable. He answered my questions thoroughly and assured me everything I was seeing, when I expressed some concerns, would be resolved with just a bit of time. He was correct in that and I am back playing tennis and disc golf. I had read that the procedure carried some risk of long term pain, but even the short term pain was very minimal. Very good surgeon to use
