Stephen Solomon

Stephen B. Solomon has been named Chief of the Interventional Radiology Service in the Department of Radiology.

Stephen B. Solomon, who joined the faculty in 2005, has been named Chief of the Interventional Radiology Service in the Department of Radiology.

As an interventional radiologist, Dr. Solomon specializes in minimally invasive treatments carried out using image guidance, including x-ray, CT, ultrasound, and MRI. He has a particular expertise in thermal ablation — a technique that uses imaging to guide a needle to a target tumor and then destroy it through the application of heat (radiofrequency ablation) or extreme cold (cryoablation). He has invented a number of technologies that make surgery easier and has expertise in robotics and other image-guided therapies.

Dr. Solomon received his MD degree from the Yale School of Medicine, interned at Yale-New Haven Hospital, and was a radiology resident at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. He also serves as co-director of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s new Center for Image-Guided Intervention, which will incorporate a multi-modality and multidisciplinary approach to image-guided cancer therapy.


I am a 75 year old woman who was diagnosed with Colon cancer in my right hepatic Flexeril.I had surgery 3 yrs ago to remove the tumor and have been on chemo for the past 2 in a half years.I have been under the care of Howard Bruckner in the Bronx and am looking for other options along with my oncologist since the Colon cancer has gone to my one lung.The lesion s are very small ,there are 3 of them and since my diagnose of these 2have gotten a little bit bigger. I am interested to see if radio frequency ablation would work for those small areas. I would like a consult with you in oder to receive more information.I should also mention that I am a liver transplant patient 21 years post op.
