His primary focus is minimally invasive surgery, surgical oncology and minimally invasive vein procedures. Related to the former areas of focus he performs complex advanced laparoscopic procedures. Dr. Kaufman has been instrumental in introducing a wide range of minimally invasive and advanced procedures to the hospitals in which he has practiced. He continues to advance surgical techniques and the use of new technologies and novel approaches to current problems in the fields of General and Minimally Invasive Surgery. He derives great satisfaction when patients undergoing these minimally invasive procedures, have such a dramatic improvement in their postoperative recovery, as compared to traditional open surgical techniques.Dr. Kaufman is grateful to be able to offer patients an effective and minimally invasive surgical option which dramatically and positively changes their postoperative recovery. Areas of his interest include: Breast Surgery, Comprehensive care for skin cancer (Melanoma, Basal Cell carcinoma, Squamous cell carcinoma , Merkel Cell Carcinoma), Laparoscopic Herniorraphy (ventral, inguinal, umbilical and hiatal) and colorectal surgery including hemmorhoids.
