SAN LUIS OBISPO

A judge has ruled the surgeon involved in the failed organ harvest that left a San Luis Obispo man dead can abstain from the civil suit against him for the time being.

Rosa Navarro is suing multiple defendants in connection with the death of her son, Ruben, last February at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center.

Among the defendants are San Francisco surgeon Dr. Hootan Roozrokh, his partner, Dr. Arturo Martinez, and Kaiser Permanente Medical Group.

The civil case will continue for the remaining defendants.

Sarah Arnquist

San Luis Obispo County prosecutors filed three felony charges in July against San Fran-cisco
transplant surgeon Hootan Roozrokh, alleging he prescribed excessive doses of painkillers and
sedatives last year to hasten the death of Ruben Navarro in order to harvest his organs.

More than six people contributed to Navarro’s care that night, including two other licensed doctors
and four licensed nurses, but only Roozrokh faces criminal charges.
