Har Chi Lau, MD, FACS

A Board-Certified Surgeon with expertise in Minimally Invasive Surgery, Dr. Lau also instructs laparoscopic surgery methods to other doctors and frequently presents on the subject nationwide. In addition, he's impressed and won the trust of a tough crowd of colleagues who personally request Dr. Lau for their surgeries. Not every surgeon is the first choice for doctors and nurses alike, and with 12,500 surgeries already performed, it's apparent that Dr. Lau is no ordinary doctor.

"When I sit down with my patients, we discuss what is important to them. Ninety-nine percent of the time, people tell me they are afraid surgery will change them somehow. In actuality, Minimally Invasive Surgery can bring patients back to their old selves again and to the quality of life they deserve."
