Had very tricky infection close to a Stimulator lead

Dr Kaufman cleaned out an infection very close to my Spinal Cord Stimulator Implant. He was able to clean it out and leave my stim in. I need the stim to combat sciatica pain. His staff is #1. Can't say more. Great Dr!

Neurosurgery in Pittsburgh

Is very thorough. Polite, informative & professional. I rated his bed side manner at 4 stars simply because he speaks very softly & sometimes comes across as shy. Not a fun loving, sense of humor doctor but I would not have any other surgeon touch my back. Dr Kaufmann is in my opinion is one of the very best available.

One Star

Dr. Kaufmann didn't seem to take me seriously. After deciding that I was not a candidate for surgery he could not tell me anything about why I have pain that is progressively getting worse for over a year now. Only after insisting that I am in pain and there is something wrong he referred me to yet another doctor and could not get out of the room fast enough. I would not recommend him to anyone. This after both my Physical Therapist and Chiropractor looked at my MRIs and told me what they thought was happening. Neither of them know each other and their opinions line up. Dr. Kaufmann couldn't tell me anything about my condition. He even spoke over me while I explained my condition boasting "uh huh" about 10 times in the middle of my sentences. Thanks for a waste of my time.
