Dr. Wolfeld's Path to Excellence

After graduating from Cornell University and SUNY Downstate College of Medicine, Dr. Wolfeld was accepted into the highly competitive integrated plastic surgery training program at the Mount Sinai Medical Center where there was an acceptance percentage of less than 1%.

Excellence in Aesthetics

Dr. Wolfeld firmly believes that an aesthetic sense is innate; but years of training specifically in an aesthetic field is paramount in delivering a superior hair restoration result.

This is why having a board certification in plastic surgery demonstrates Dr. Wolfeld’s overall aesthetic expertise, his safety in surgical protocols, and his ethical approach to each individual patient.

The additional board certification in hair restoration re-affirms this, while further demonstrating his expertise specifically in hair restoration procedures.

Your Hair and Your Self Confidence

When hair begins to thin, or bald spots appear, it has a big impact on how you feel about yourself. Some young men (or women) experience early hair loss, seeing thinning hair as early as their twenties. In these cases, early intervention could not be more important. Dr. Wolfeld offers regenerative medical treatments to help you keep your hair thicker and fuller for longer.
