Robert A. Solomon, MD

Profile Headshot


Dr. Robert A. Solomon has specialized in the surgical treatment of cerebrovascular diseases since 1986. As a leader in his field, he is one of the most experienced physicians in the country in operating on cerebral aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations. Dr. Solomon has served as Chair of Neurological Surgery for twenty-two years and has been a member of the Columbia and New York-Presbyterian community since beginning his residency training. Currently, Dr. Solomon has decided to stop performing open surgery and instead devote his time and knowledge to servicing patients who have questions or concerns about their cerebrovascular disease and treatment options.

It is very important for patients and caregivers to find clarity and certainty when deciding to receive neurosurgery or treatment. With his many years of surgical experience, Dr. Solomon wants to assist you in finding the right neurosurgeon and proper treatment for your particular condition and circumstances. Many asymptomatic cerebrovascular lesions such as aneurysms and AVM’s can be observed. When treatment is necessary, minimally invasive techniques are often available. Patients requiring open surgical procedures will benefit from state-of-the-art facilities, a highly experienced operative team collaborating with Dr. Solomon, and the finest Neurosurgical Intensive Care facility in the country.

Dr. Solomon’s specialty interests include aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, and carotid artery stenosis. He is available for consultations and second opinions.
