Dr. Jarrod P. Kaufman's 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 (ACoS) New Jersey State Chair for the Commission on Cancer. He also serves 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), Antireflux surgery including Laparoscopic and Incisionless repairs, Laparoscopic colo-rectal resections, Laparoscopic ultrasonography for oncologic staging and diagnosis as well as common bile duct imaging for Billiary disease.

He is also performing office based ultrasound procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of breast, thyroid, and venous disease including radiofrequency closure and endovenous laser ablation of varicose veins. Procedures are also offered for small vein disease like injection sclerotherapy and other modalities to treat spider veins and telangiectasias.

He has published numerous articles and he serves as a member of the editorial boards of peer-reviewed journals. Dr. Kaufman also presently serves as an active member on the SAGES (Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons
) Technology committee.

Dr. Kaufman feels that it is crucial to be part of the bigger picture of medicine in the communities in which you practice and therefore
has both previously and currently served on numerous hospital committees. He has most recently been the cancer liaison physician at both Community (CMC) and Kimball (KMC) Hospitals where he received the outstanding achievement award from the ACoS for his service in 2008. He was the youngest member ever to be named to the Foundation Board of Directors at KMC. He also served on the Foundation Board at CMC Medical Center.

Dr. Kaufman also serves on the Board of Trustees of the American Society of General Surgeons (ASGS).
