Having been born and raised in New Jersey, Dr. Kaufman and his wife, Shelby, were happy to leave winter behind and are now proud to call Austin their home. Dr. Kaufman’s medical training began in Washington, D.C. where he enjoyed thirteen years in our nation’s capital and found both his love of medicine and his lovely wife. While a resident, Dr. Kaufman focused on advanced spinal surgery techniques and the specialized care of pediatric patients at The Children’s National Medical Center. After successfully completing his residency training, Dr. Kaufman accepted a clinical fellowship at the Nemours/Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware. During his fellowship, Dr. Kaufman received extensive training from world renowned surgeons in the management of scoliosis, complex spinal deformities, neuromuscular disorders, skeletal dysplasia, and hip dysplasia. Dr. Kaufman and his wife enjoy hiking, camping, and finding hidden swimming holes. They love to cook and are always on the lookout for restaurant, music, and festival recommendations!
