I had the same experience as the last poster. I was looking up his email address to send him some good news--that 6 years past major scoliosis surgery, I just won a half ironman triathlon in the women's overall category. I wanted to let him know how much he had changed my life. I wish I had done so earlier. What a tragic loss of a wonderful and selfless person. My condolences are with his family.
I was just about to email Dr. Lauerman to make an appointment. But since I have not seen him for a number of years, something told me to google him first. I am deeply saddened to read about his passing and my thoughts and prayers are with his family. I was diagnosed with scoliosis and after seeing different doctors in various countries, i finally met Dr Lauerman and instantly knew that he was the doctor for me. His warmth, professionalism and skill made me to continue the long journey from London to Washington. Whilst many doctors were pessimistic about my chance of walking again after surgery, he gave me hope at the time i needed it the most. Thank you for giving me my life back. I and my family will always be grateful. May your soul rest in perfect peace.
Please accept our deepest condolences over the loss of our special friend and amazing surgeon for my husband Bob. The loss of Dr. Lauerman (Bill) is a loss to the entire medical community, to his family of course and to friends and acquaintances far and wide. His professionalism and skill were acclaimed and rightly so, but his character was equally as sterling and fine. He holds a special place in our hearts as my husband's surgeon, but also as the father of two wonderful, accomplished children whom I was privileged to teach. May you all, his family, find strength in your faith, family and friends and may God grant you peace at this time. The legacy of your husband and father is a great one and may cherished memories give you solace and joy in days to come.

May God Bless the family of Dr. Lauerman as my family will never forget him. Dr. Lauerman has changed my daughter's life for the better which gave her a more positive outlook on life & for that i will be forever grateful!
I called Dr. Lauerman's office today to make an appointment only to learn the heartbreaking news that's he's no longer with us on this earth. He has been my doctor for 16 years. He was such a wonderful doctor; kind and honest. He never pushed me into surgery as many other doctors had attempted to previously. I was deeply saddened to hear of his passing and my heart goes out to his family. He did remarkable work here on earth and improved the lives of so many. He will be truly missed.
