Bio

Jarrod P. Kaufman, MD is a Board Certified General and Advanced Laparoscopic Surgeon in private practice in Central New Jersey. In addition to practicing medicine, Dr. Kaufman serves as the American College of Surgeons New Jersey State Chair for the Commission on Cancer. He also served as the Chair of the Melanoma Workgroup of the NJ Governor's Task Force on Cancer Prevention, Early Detection and Treatment. 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. Another area of expertise is in the management and treatment of varicose veins with multiple minimally invasive techniques he has used and help perfect over the last 13 years of practice.
