For the benefit of all our valued patients, Lam Vascular & Associates is committed to investing in and developing a group of vascular experts specializing in all areas of limb salvage. And the team is growing!
Eric Chang-Tung, MD, recently joined the surgical team of Dr. Russell Lam at Lam Vascular & Associates. He brings decades of experience in vascular and endovascular procedures as well as limb salvage (amputation prevention) and vascular surgery.
A native of Honolulu, Hawaii, Dr. Chang-Tung is a multiple board-certified surgeon specializing in Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery. He completed two rigorous residencies and two fellowship programs during his training years and was formerly a staff surgeon at MD Anderson Cancer Center before joining the team at Lam Vascular.
With a graduate background in engineering, Dr. Chang-Tung’s research interests include graft rheology and topographic fluorescence spectroscopy. In his practice, he makes use of minimally invasive procedures, including endovascular and thoracoscopic approaches.
He and his wife have raised and launched two engineers. With an interest in health and martial arts, Dr. Chang-Tung’s advice to every patient he serves is to exercise regularly, control blood pressure and stop smoking. “Protect your heart, from it flows the springs of life,” (Proverbs 4:24) he likes to tell his patients. Dr. Chang-Tung also enjoys custom electronic circuit fabrication and locksmithing.
Dr. Chang-Tung has been listed in D Magazine’s “Best Doctors in Dallas”, Texas Monthly’s “Texas Super Doctors”, Consumers Research Council’s “America’s Top Surgeons” and Texas Magazine’s “Top Surgeons”. As a physician with great commitment to compassionate care, collaboration, state-of-the-art technology and surgical excellence, Dr. Chang-Tung was delighted to join the Lam Vascular team as he felt the practice philosophy mirrors his own.
“After clinically observing Lam Vascular’s performance and patient interactions over the past several years, I feel this group of surgeons provides superlative surgical care with collaborative interchange within the group, all while implementing state-of-the-art technology. They provide compassionate care to patients which parallels my own system of values.”
