Dr. Stephen R. Lauterbach is a native of central NY where he graduated with honors from New Hartford Central High School and lettered in swimming and golf. He attended Middlebury College in Vermont and graduated cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry in 1990. He continued varsity swimming and golf while at Middlebury and won the Stromstead award in chemistry. Dr. Lauterbach did a senior honors thesis under the direction of Sunhee Choi Ph.D. and contributed to Dr. Choi’s laboratory’s publication of their research. He then attended SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, New York and received his M.D. with honors in 1994.

Dr. Lauterbach completed a residency in general surgery at Strong Memorial Hospital/ University of Rochester in Rochester, NY in 1999 and a fellowship in vascular and endovascular surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital/ Harvard Medical School in 2001. Dr. Lauterbach studied in the MGH vascular laboratory while a research fellow which provided his clinical interest in noninvasive vascular measurements and published his clinical research on acute aortic dissection with branch compromise under the direction of Dr. Richard P. Cambria.

Dr. Lauterbach then engaged in private practice in Los Angeles, CA for 8 years and developed a keen interest in limb salvage and treatment of the ischemic diabetic foot under the guidance of his senior partner, Dr. George Andros. He then returned to central NY and practiced for another 7 years before taking a clinical hiatus and working full time in industry with Xablecath Inc. as medical director under the guidance of Lisa Dunlea, CEO.
Dr. Lauterbach still enjoys competitive golf, travel, biographical histories and volunteer work.
