Specialties

Dr. Christine L Lau has the following 2 specialties

  • Surgery
  • Vascular Surgery

    Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
    They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.

Surgical error harmed me greatly

This doctor caused the destruction of the middle lobe of my right lung by trapping the feeding artery in the staple line when performing right upper lobectomy and when a CT Scan revealed it did nothing to address it and let me lay in hospital bed till near death 10 days later. Then made excuses as to why it happened saying my body was different than others. I would avoid her at all costs. She also was not forth coming with the truth about my preop CT scan which said the tumor was imeasurable and instead of verifying by biopsy that surgery was still needed she told me and my family that the tumor had shrunk some.
