Professor Matthew Kaufman PROFESSOR MATTHEW KAUFMAN was a pioneer of stem cell therapy who developed world-leading practices through working with mice. Professor Matthew Kaufman was the first to culture the embryonic stem cells of the small rodents and cultivate them in a laboratory. he academic went on to produce The Atlas of Mouse Development - an internationally regarded textbook on the subject of mouse embryology. His works also included a host of papers on medical history, including anatomy teaching in Edinburgh in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Kaufman was born 29 September, 1942 in Hackney. He entered WCS in 1953 before going north to Edinburgh University in 1960. Qualifying in 1967 he spent time working in Birmingham in surgery and medicine, before becoming Senior House officer at Luton and Dunstable Hospital. Matthew then returned to Edinburgh working in obstetrics. Drawn to reproductive biology, he spent time at the Institute of Animal Genetics where he worked on aspects of IVF. He decided that his future career lay in academia and by 1970 was studying at Cambridge for a degree in Physiology. Matthew remained at Cambridge until 1985 where he was a demonstrator, then lecturer in the anatomy department becoming a fellow of studies in medicine and anatomy at King's College.
Prof Kaufman was also curator of the university's anatomy collections and was elected Emeritus Professor of anatomy in 2008.
Away from public life, he married Claire in 1973 and continued to indulge his love of vintage cars, including Armstrong Siddeleys and Lagondas. Though he habitually wore a black beret, he could regularly be seen in his flying helmet, putting the glorious car through its paces on the Edinburgh bypass. Professor Kaufman died in Edinburgh on August 11th 2013 and is survived by Claire, his sons Simon and David and grandchildren Angus and Georgia.

Andrew Elkwood, MD, FACS and Matthew R. Kaufman, MD, FACS, leading plastic and reconstructive surgeons at The Institute for Advanced Reconstruction at The Plastic Surgery Center, will present new findings based on their work in advanced reconstructive techniques for people with spinal cord injuries and pain disorders at two upcoming scientific meetings.

Dr. Kaufman will present his research on innovative techniques to reverse ventilator dependency on April 15 at the American Spinal Injury Association Annual Scientific Meeting in Philadelphia. On May 21, he will also present his latest findings on the use of nerve decompression surgery for patients suffering from post-traumatic headache at the 8th World Congress of the World Institute of Pain, in New York.
At the American Spinal Injury Association meeting, Dr. Kaufman will discuss ?Diaphragm Muscle Replacement With Implanted Pacemaker to Reverse Ventilator Dependency in Cervical Tetraplegia. His presentation will define which patients with cervical spinal cord injury are least likely to have success at eliminating ventilator dependency; discuss current surgical options, including the implantation of diaphragm pacemakers, which are available to some patients with tetraplegia (injury to the spinal cord in the cervical vertebra, causing paralysis of all four limbs) who would otherwise be ventilator-dependent; and discuss a novel procedure, called diaphragm muscle replacement, as a potential safe and effective option for progressive or complete diaphragm muscle atrophy in cervical tetraplegia with ventilator dependency.
Dr. Kaufman has pioneered this procedure, which incorporates the use of muscle and phrenic nerve grafts to enable some patients whose diaphragms are paralyzed to breath normally. He has successfully treated more than 250 patients from across the globe.
?With the advances we have made, many patients can now be weaned off of ventilators," said Dr. Kaufman, a partner in the Insitute. ?This enables them to live a better, more independent life and reduce their risk of infections and other serious complications."
Also at the World Institute of Pain Congress, Dr. Kaufman will present: ?Nerve Decompression Surgery for Post-Traumatic Headache: A Report of Microsurgical Techniques, Intra-Operative Findings and Surgical Outcomes. Headache known as ?post-traumatic headache" (PTH) is the most common complaint after trauma to the head or neck. Dr. Kaufman will discuss cases in which PTH patients who had not been helped by medical treatment benefitted from nerve decompression surgery. These patients had debilitating headaches for an average of eight years before being treated by Dr. Kaufman.
Dr. Kaufman is one of the most experienced surgeons in the U.S. who uses nerve decompression surgery to treat PTH, migraine and occipital neuralgia.
Both also hold clinical teaching appointments: Dr. Kaufman is Clinical Assistant Professor of Surgery at the David Geffen UCLA Medical Center, while Dr. Elkwood is Associate Professor for Surgery at Drexel University.
