Dr. Elena Rodriguez
Obstetrics & Gynecology
3440 Lomita Blvd. Suite 427
Torrance, CA 90505
Trained at Stanford University for Minimally Invasive & Robotic Surgery, Dr. Rodriguez and her talented support staff care for over 8,000 women in the South Bay. This self-motivated, Los Angeles native chose the community of Torrance to establish her own boutique facility five years ago, which, as of April 2017, will be transitioning to a Gynecology only practice.
Having always been drawn to the operating room, Dr. Rodriguez looked to hone her skills in minimally invasive surgery by pursuing a fellowship at Stanford University. The experience was humbling, grueling and ultimately put her in a position where she felt polished.
One of Dr. Rodriguez’s most defining experiences was volunteering at a labor and delivery unit in Mexico, helping women bring life into this world. It was during this time period that she discovered her passion for surgery, embarking on a residency program shortly after at one of the toughest, most underserved hospitals in Los Angeles County: Harbor UCLA. Defined by long hours and challenging cases, this role inevitably summoned a sense of fearlessness from its doctors, a trait that Dr. Rodriguez was already well-versed in.
In addition to motivating other young women to follow their professional dreams like she has, Dr. Rodriguez is deeply rewarded by being a source of strength and compassion to her wonderful patients. From growing up a sibling of six to participating in poetry jam sessions at Cornell University to eventually working alongside robotic surgical systems, Dr. Rodriguez has taken the road less traveled to get to where she is today.
