As a physician volunteer for both free clinics and the Red Cross, Dr. Lo has provided free general or plastic surgical and wound care for uninsured and indigent patients, as well as federal employees, military members, and their families.
Research-wise, Dr. Lo has authored or co-authored nine different publications on reconstructive surgery, infection control, postoperative care, and hernia repair. He has investigated and authored studies and projects on wound healing and chronic, non-healing wounds, complex sound management and reconstruction, and multi, drug-resistant organisms as a Fellow at the Institute for Wound Care and Limb Preservation, and has performed research on cranial suture fusion and facial aging factors in addition to performing cosmetic hand and reconstructive surgery on both adults and children.
