Dr. Solomon's Bio

Dr. Robert A. Solomon has specialized in the surgical treatment of cerebrovascular diseases since 1986, and has operated on more cerebral aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations than any surgeon in the tri-state area. His special interests are in the identification and definitive treatment of cerebral aneurysms and cerebral arteriovenous malformations before rupture and before the onset of devastating neurological problems. Dr. Solomon has developed an outstanding team of physicians to handle even the most complex problems with minimal invasion and the highest degree of safety. His team includes neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons who are the regional experts in nonsurgical endovascular treatment of cerebrovascular diseases.

The Gamma Knife Center at Columbia University Medical Center is outstanding, providing nonsurgical stereotactic radiosurgery for arteriovenous malformations. Patients requiring open surgical procedures will benefit from state-of-the-art facilities, a highly experienced operative team led by Dr. Solomon, and the finest neurosurgical intensive care facility in the country. Dr. Solomon was Chairman of the American Board of Neurological Surgery in 2007 and a past President of the New York State Neurosurgical Society, the Society of University Neurosurgeons, and the American Academy of Neurological Surgery.

Dr. Solomon’s special interests include aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, and carotid artery stenosis.
