Dr. Russell Lam is credited with preventing thousands of leg amputations. Many of these interventions have been the result of patients who sought a second opinion after being told their conditions are inoperable or not treatable with medical therapies. A second opinion from a renowned specialist can provide you with peace of mind knowing that you are choosing the ideal treatment option for your specific needs.
