Dr Kossoff received his medical degree from SUNY at Buffalo School of Medicine in New York. He went on to complete a residency in pediatrics at Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, Virginia. He completed a second residency in child neurology and a fellowship in pediatric epilepsy and clinical neurophysiology at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland.

He is a professor of neurology and pediatrics at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center and focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of childhood seizures and epilepsy, particularly treatments other than medications, such as diet, neurostimulation, and surgery. Specific interests include the ketogenic diet, the modified Atkins diet for children and adults, infantile spasms, hemispherectomy, the interaction of migraine headaches with epilepsy, and Sturge-Weber syndrome.

Dr Kossoff is also very involved in teaching and is the director of the Pediatric Neurology Residency Program. He is a coauthor of Treatment of Pediatric Neurologic Disorders and the 5th (and upcoming 6th) editions of Ketogenic Diets. He has been the editor of “Keto News” on epilepsy.com since 2007 and is considered one of the world experts on dietary treatment for epilepsy.
