Dr. Wolf is part of a unique collaborative partnership with Patty McGoldrick, NP.

His interests lie in patient education, and his commitment is to improving the quality of life for people with epilepsy and their families and caregivers. This is manifested by his commitment to caring for the developmentally delayed and those with catastrophic and genetically mediated epilepsies, from birth to adulthood.
Dr. Wolf’s research interests include epilepsy surgery, including its use in patients who might otherwise be deemed ineligible for such interventions, such as the developmentally delayed and young children. He has spearheaded the growth and success of the epilepsy surgery program at Beth Israel and Roosevelt, working hand in hand with Saadi Ghatan, MD, Vice-Chair of Neurosurgery. Other research interests include the genetics of epilepsy , and epilepsy associated with autism and cerebral palsy. Current research includes epilepsy surgery outcomes and treatment for genetically mediated epilepsies. Interests include treatment of genetically mediated epilepsies, included Dravet’s syndrome, Aicardi syndrome, infantile spasms, and Otahara syndrome.
