Professor of Radiology
Weill Cornell Medical College

Attending Radiologist
NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital


Dr. Madoff is Chief of the Division of Interventional Radiology and Professor of Radiology at Weill Cornell Medical College and an Attending Physician at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell. He is an internationally-recognized expert in Interventional Oncology, a subspecialty within Interventional Radiology that offers patients with various forms of cancer minimally invasive curative, adjuvant and palliative treatment options.

Dr. Madoff earned his B.A. from Emory University and his M.D. from the University of Pittsburgh. He completed both his internship in Internal Medicine and residency in Radiology at SUNY at Stony Brook and his fellowship training in Vascular and Interventional Radiology at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Dr. Madoff achieved Board Certification in Diagnostic Radiology from the American Board of Radiology in 2000 and attained his Certificate of Added Qualifications in Vascular and Interventional Radiology in 2002.

Dr. Madoff has a strong background in clinical care and has treated many patients with complex oncological problems. He was a faculty member in the Interventional Radiology Section at  MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas for over a decade before joining Weill Cornell in 2011. His clinical interests are wide-ranging, and have included visceral vascular, hepatobiliary and genitourinary interventions, various embolotherapy and percutaneous biopsy techniques and many specialized therapies within the realm of Interventional Oncology. In particular, Dr. Madoff is world-renowned for his work on preoperative portal vein embolization, a technique used to improve the safety of major hepatic resection. This technique is based on the liver's ability to regenerate and has been used in patients with primary and metastatic hepatobiliary cancer to increase the size of the anticipated liver remnant before surgery. Without this procedure, many patients with potentially resectable disease would not be eligible for curative resection. Dr. Madoff has also been heavily involved in treating patients with transarterial and ablative approaches to cancer in the liver and other organ systems.

Dr. Madoff is a leader in academic Interventional Radiology and has been an invited speaker at many national and international meetings. He is first-author on numerous peer-reviewed articles and has written many book chapters. Dr. Madoff currently serves as Deputy Editor for Radiology, the flagship scientific journal of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and served as Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology from 2007 to 2010. Dr. Madoff also serves on the editorial boards of other publications that include Techniques in Vascular and Interventional Radiology and Seminars in Interventional Radiology. He served as co-editor of the highly regarded textbook entitled Venous Embolization of the Liver: Radiologic and Surgical Practice and is co-editor of the newly released textbook entitled Clinical Interventional Oncology. He has also contributed manuscript reviews for many other scientific journals. Dr. Madoff is active in many of the major radiological societies including the Radiological Society of North America, the American Roentgen Ray Society and the Society of Interventional Radiology. Based on his important contributions to the field, Dr. Madoff was elected Fellow of the Society of Interventional Radiology in 2007 and the American College of Radiology in 2015.
