Professional Summary:

I joined the Department of Neurology and the University at Buffalo in July 1998 with the goal to develop the EEG and pediatric epilepsy program. Prior to that time, I completed residencies in Pediatrics at the University of Tel-Aviv and at Rainbow Babies Case Western University, as well as fellowships in Child Neurology and in Epilepsy and Clinical Neurophysiology at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation.

I currently serve as Director of the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit as well as the EEG laboratories for Kaleida Health and Oishei Children's Hospital. I was promoted to Professor in Clinical Neurology in March 2014. I serve as the main instructor for EEG and Epilepsy for neurology residents and clinical neurophysiology fellows, and mentored numerous residents and fellows for research projects.

Our 12-bed epilepsy monitoring unit (EMU) was recognized as a Level IV NAEC level for 10 years in a row (highest possible) by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC). The EMU was awarded a $1,000,000 grant by the Cummings Foundation to build a new 12-bed Epilepsy Monitoring Unit in the John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital, Buffalo, NY.

My interests in child neurology and epilepsy have focused on management of refractory epilepsy in children, epilepsy surgery and EEG. I am board certified in child neurology, clinical neurophysiology and epilepsy. I read evoke potentials and perform Quality Assurance of EEG‘s at various hospitals in Buffalo.

My main research relates to the diagnosis and management of refractory epilepsy in children and infants and epilepsy surgery.

I am passionate in the education of epilepsy and EEG and guiding medical students, neurology residents and clinical neurophysiology fellows into their careers while promoting the field of epilepsy.
