I’m Michael Lazar, M.D. I was born in Arkansas in 1953 and completed medical school at the University of Arkansas in 1978. My postgraduate training in surgery and urology was accomplished in 1983 at LSU in New Orleans. I was certified by the American Board of Urology in 1985, 1995, and 2005.
I am CEO of Santa Rosa Surgical Management Co., LLC and Managing Physician Director of St. Joseph Health System Ambulatory Surgery Center. I have been Surgery Department Chair and a Chief of Staff. I am Chairman of the Board of Directors of Redwood Health Services and am a member of the American Urology Association, American Association of Clinical Urologists, and active in local and regional medical groups.
I am married with 3 children, and have been active in Boy Scout leadership and soccer coaching. My hobbies include hiking, backpacking, camping, alpine skiing, and the occasional fly fishing outing. Living in the wine country affords cultivation of a love of wine, and proximity to San Francisco allows enjoyment of its theater and fine arts.
My staff and I are proud to be early leaders in the usage of HIFU in treating prostate cancer and we are working closely with USHIFU to bring this innovative service to Americans with this disease.
