Patient Care Setting



“Providing medical care in rural America is a particular passion of mine. I have spent my entire career in rural areas serving patients, and led a training program in Cooperstown for young surgeons who are equally passionate about ensuring all patients, no matter their location, have access to high-quality care that allows them to stay close to home for procedures and post-surgical recovery.”

Dr. Kaufman will see patients in Canandaigua at F.F. Thompson Hospital. His clinical areas of interest include: general abdominal surgery – gastric, intestinal, spleen, gallbladder, hiatal hernias, groin hernias, complex abdominal wall hernias; skin cancer-related surgery; endocrine surgery – thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal surgery; and breast cancer-related surgery.

Dr. Kaufman will also serve as division chief for UR Medicine Regional Surgery, working collaboratively with established surgeons at affiliates Jones Memorial Hospital in Wellsville, St. James Hospital in Hornell, Noyes Health in Dansville, and F.F. Thompson.
