​​Professional Background 

After graduating from Baylor College of Medicine in 2009, Dr. Kaufman completed his residency in the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Baylor College of Medicine in 2015. He completed a fellowship from the Chase Hand & Upper Limb Center at Stanford University School of Medicine in Palo Alto, Calif., in 2016.

Hobbies and Interests

Dr. Kaufman enjoys spending quality time with his wife and three boys.  He also enjoys skiing, the outdoors and travel. 

Fun Fa​cts

Dr. Kaufman’s favorite meal is Tex-Mex fajitas and his favorite dessert is crème brûlée. His guilty pleasure is chocolate.

The best advice he’s received is, “To be a surgeon is a privilege given to a few; never lose sight of that honor.”

​Successful patient care involves a friendly, compassionate environment, up-to-date information about the patient condition, needs and treatment options, and ultimately a surgeon dedicated to the best care possible.
