Overview of Dr. Lau

I earned my medical degree at Tufts University. I have been at City of Hope since 2006, where I specialize in minimally invasive approaches to urologic oncology and reconstructive urology. I have performed over 3,000 robotic and laparoscopic procedures and have also trained numerous surgeons in robotic surgery throughout the U.S.

My research focus is on improving laparoscopic and robotically-assisted procedures for genitourinary cancers and improving quality of life for urologic cancer patients.
