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.

May 18, 2018 - Dr. Kaufman to Speak at ATS Conference
...
I am so blessed to have had the phrenic nerve surgery that Dr. Kaufman had performed on Friday, March 13th!
...
Then one day I saw Dr. Kaufman's article but thought I may not be a candidate. After all, I was 'functioning'. I went to see my pulmonologist again with the article about Dr. Kaufman's procedure. He had not heard of Dr. Kaufman or the procedure and said he would look into it. In the meantime, I had several tests performed for my lung and heart functions. My pulmonologist looked into the procedure and referred me to a thoracic surgeon at Hershey Medical. This surgeon did not perform this procedure in the article but had offered to contact Dr. Kaufman with my test results to see if I was a candidate. After a short time, I received a call from Heather stating that I was a candidate! I was so thrilled! Dr. Kaufman conferenced with me on the phone, we set a date for the consultation and surgery. Everything was explained to my husband and me in detail. We decided to go forward with the surgery. It was the best decision for me! And I feel oh so much better after such a considerably short time of a little over four months!
I can't thank Dr. Kaufman enough for helping me and giving me a second chance at living a fuller life!
...
I look forward to my one-year checkup with Dr. Kaufman so he can see how much better I am and how he has helped me so much!

Patient to Undergo Phrenic Nerve Procedure with Dr. Matthew Kaufman
...
Dr. Kaufman with Revital Haik
Revital Haik already had an uphill battle with her health. Two years ago, she endured not one, but two operations for thyroid cancer.
...
Unfortunately, Haik's story was not uncommon for Dr. Kaufman who continually sees patients with paralyzed diaphragms resulting from surgeries, injuries or accidents. Subsequently, these patients have dangerous, life-altering symptoms and their medical professionals often tell them that they "just have to live with it". Yet Dr. Kaufman offers an alternative. He is the only known surgeon to perform specialized phrenic nerve surgery.
The phrenic nerve controls function of the diaphragm muscle, the primary muscle involved in breathing. Treatment options for phrenic nerve injury have been limited to either nonsurgical therapy or diaphragm plication, neither of which attempts to restore normal function to the paralyzed diaphragm.
However, advances in nerve decompression and transplant have enabled Dr. Kaufman to reverse diaphragm paralysis. The techniques he utilizes are derived from the procedures commonly used to treat arm or leg paralysis, which allow surgeons to restore function to previously paralyzed muscle groups.
To date, Dr. Kaufman has performed this specialized procedure over 200 times since 2007 at Jersey Shore University Medical Center in New Jersey and at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) Medical Center. Well versed on the matter, he has also published various academic articles on phrenic nerve surgery.
For his unique expertise and experience, Dr. Kaufman is sought after by patients of all ages from around the world including Australia, Canada, and Israel.
...
While Dr. Kaufman cannot be sure of the extent of the problem until the surgery, he is guardedly optimistic. "I have dealt with this problem before [phrenic nerve damage due to thyroid surgery] and most of the patients have done extremely well. Preliminary test results lead us to believe that Revital has a high likelihood of a favorable outcome."
Haik will arrive in New Jersey at the end of June for her surgery with Dr. Kaufman. Her sister, also a mother of young children, will be escorting her.
...
The article from Kaufman and colleagues provides the strongest evidence to date in favor of a sea-change in how one might approach patients with diaphragmatic paralysis.
...
On December 5, 2014, Brown underwent surgery with Dr. Matthew Kaufman and Dr. Andrew Elkwood, both of The Institute for Advanced Reconstruction in Shrewsbury, NJ, and Dr. Adam Shiroff, Chief of Trauma Surgery, at Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune, NJ.
...
Dr. Kaufman, the only known surgeon to perform surgery on the phrenic nerve, completed a phrenic nerve graft while installing a diaphragm pacemaker with Dr. Shiroff.
...
As the phrenic nerve regenerates over a period of one year and the diaphragm muscle strengthens, we would not be surprised if he is eventually able to breathe completely on his own," states Dr. Kaufman.
...
Dr. Kaufman will be presenting on the Evaluation Of Current And Future Surgical Treatment Options for Diaphragmatic Paralysis and Ventilator Dependency in High Cervical Tetraplegia at the May 14-16, 2015 ISCOS ASIA meeting in Montreal, the largest international scientific gathering of experts in the treatment of spinal cord injury.
