I chose City of Hope because I wanted to be part of a group with a reputation in the community for outstanding and passionate patient care.
Michael Lao, M.D., is a trained urologist and surgeon with expertise in robotic procedures, as well as the profoundly personal areas of male fertility, sexual dysfunction and reconstruction. He always keeps in mind that “we have the amazing honor to be able to take care of patients with very sensitive and quality of life concerns.”
Dr. Lao received his medical degree at Albany Medical College in Albany, New York, and continued his training with residencies in surgery and urology at University of Connecticut in Farmington, Connecticut. He completed his fellowship at The Smith Institute for Urology, North Shore Health System, New Hyde Park, New York.
Dr. Lao treats patients at our Antelope Valley and Santa Clarita locations, where he invests considerable time building and maintaining relationships. “I am constantly reminded and awed by the enormous impact we can achieve and the relationships we are able to share with our patients,” he says.
