Medical Director | Full profile
Dr. Margit Kaufman is an anesthesiologist and intensivist whose passion is for providing excellent, compassionate, and evidence-based care to her patients.

She works closely on a daily basis with the clinical staff and local coordinators to ensure that the patients who are part of our Bloodless Institute continue to receive high-quality care.
