Defining this field will increase awareness of these treatment protocols within the medical community, and better organize the multi-disciplinary approach to the varying aspects of these disorders.

NJ Top Docs is proud to present Matthew R. Kaufman, M.D. of The Plastic Surgery Center as a Top Doctor for 2017. This year, he and his colleagues published Rehabilitative Surgery - the first interdisciplinary textbook on the emerging field of rehabilitative surgery.
Rehabilitative Surgery is a new field in which state-of-the-art procedures from multiple surgical specialities are combined in the treatment of paralyzed or severely neurologically impaired patients in order to improve their daily life. Dr. Kaufman was instrumental in bringing this book to life. He and NJ Top Doc Andrew Elkwood, M.D. were both editors of the textbook. In Rehabilitative Surgery every aspect of reconstructive surgical treatment is considered, including anesthesia, orthopedic surgery, plastic surgery, neurosurgery, general surgery, vascular surgery, and otolaryngology.
"Our textbook has defined a new subspecialty which we have called, "Rehabilitative Surgery". This encompasses the surgical management of patients with paralysis, spinal cord injury, and other nervous system disorders. Defining this field will increase awareness of these treatment protocols within the medical community, and better organize the multi-disciplinary approach to the varying aspects of these disorders." - Dr. Matthew R. Kaufman
In addition to recently releasing this groundbreaking text, Dr. Kaufman and the team at The Plastic Surgery Center just hosted their first ever educational symposium, Connecting Care! This networking and educational event occurred three weeks ago at the Hyatt Regency of New Brunswick and included speakers, vendors and provided continuing education credits for nurses and case managers. The speakers of the event outlined how connecting quality care depends on the collaboration between healthcare and insurance professionals when navigating complex cases. Speakers included Dr. Matthew Kaufman, other doctors from The Plastic Surgery Center, outside physicians, lawyers and insurance professionals. Their team is looking forward to hosting this type of event annually.
