Trending News — Multicultural Communities and Orthopedic Surgery

Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Dr. Carlos J. Lavernia, is the first Latino Medical Director of The Center for Advanced Orthopedics at Larkin University. His stimulating career began in bioengineering, also researching multicultural populations' relationship with the medical community.

Dr. Lavernia has proven that Latino communities seek orthopedic surgery later than non-Hispanic whites, and African-Americans receive surgeries even later than Latino patients due to a general distrust in the community.

A previous publication reported that there are 14.1 white applicants for every Latino applying for orthopedic surgery residencies, and six whites for every Latino applying for general surgery residencies, leading to Latinos making up just 3.8 present of orthopedic surgery residents, lower than any other field. Dr. Lavernia actively promotes orthopedic programs designed to draw more Latinos to the field, hoping to correct this imbalance.

“We will work with lawmakers and the health department to improve the way care is delivered, and to make things better for patients in Florida," stated Dr. Lavernia. "Also, we'll make the life of orthopedic surgeon’s easier, working on the regulations and processes that we have to go through to take care of people and make it easier so that patient care will be better."
