About Your Doctor

Dr. Joshua Lau

Dr Joshua Lau works as a consultant at the Fiona Stanley Hospital in addition to his busy private practice.

Most of his anaesthesia training was conducted in Perth before its completion with fellowships in Toronto, Canada and at the Alfred in Melbourne in 2010. He remained in Melbourne for a decade providing care for patients at the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear (RVEEH) and Box Hill Hospitals, and throughout private surgical centres in Melbourne. During this period he regularly engaged in providing assistance for neurosurgery, bariatric surgery, orthopaedics (including major joint replacements, shoulders surgery and trauma), obstetric anaesthesia, gynaecology, paediatrics, gastroenterology, plastics, opthalmology (including eye blocks), and ENT. At RVEEH he was an ANZCA supervisor of training for 4 years and  the COVID theatre educator officer and lead simulation trainer.

Dr Lau provides anaesthesia for all types of procedures except for cardiac surgery. Additionally, he also utilise’s regional anaesthesia (local anaesthetic blocks) when appropriate to be either the sole anaesthetic technique or to optimise postoperative pain control. Dr Lau actively participates in, and fulfil the requirements of the Continuing Professional Development program, in order to update his practice, skills and knowledge base.

If he is scheduled to be your anaesthetist, a letter of introduction and information about your perioperative care will be sent along with an estimate on the costs for the anaesthesia care.

Prior to your surgery, he will contact you (or a parent for a child patient) by phone so that we can discuss the anaesthesia plans and expectations in a leisurely manner. Any questions concerning the anaesthetic will be welcomed. Unfortunately, time issues make this difficult for any emergency or unplanned procedures.
