Dr. Evangelisti

Stephen M. Evangelisti M.D.

Originally from Westchester, Dr. Evangelisti was drawn to the community of Rochester by the reputation of Dr. Robert McCormick, one of the pioneers in the field of Hand and Reconstructive surgery. His mentor inspired him to continue his training after Medical school at the University of Rochester in Plastic Surgery, Head and Neck Cancer Surgery, and Hand Surgery through the University and Strong Hospitals.

Dr. Evangelisti credits his experience in the military for refining his approach to plastic surgery. As a hand and plastic surgeon while stationed at Andrews Air Force Base, he learned how to avoid complications at all costs and do exactly what his patients wanted or needed. Military medicine promoted a conservatism that has stayed with Dr. Evangelisti throughout his career in private practice.

Upon completion of his service to the military, Dr. Evangelisti returned to Rochester as a faculty member of the University of Rochester. As an Assistant Professor of Plastic Surgery, he has been an integral part of the training of future plastic surgeons in cosmetic and hand surgery at Strong. The focus of his private practice includes breast cancer and skin cancer reconstruction, as well as hand and aesthetic surgery.

When not at the office, Dr. Evangelisti can often be found with his family at Midtown Athletic Club. He also enjoys working with his sons to restore their historic home, circa 1927; a historic church in Bristol, circa 1811; and several antique and classic cars.
