Calculating median along specific dimension of 3D array

Hi,
I have a 3D array (S) of size 75x31253x1523. If I was to calculate the median along the second axis (for each row) it would be median(S,2) which would result in a 75x1x1523 array.
However, because the array is large, I run out of memory when I try to calculate the median of the whole array with one line. Therefore, I want to calculate the median in chunks. The problem is that each chunk will be of size Ax1xB. When stacking them together, they will be of size AxNxB. How can I calculate it in chunks and still end with size Ax1xB (75x1x1523)?
Thanks!

Sorry, I wrote the dimensions wrong. They are 90x38021x1633. However, they are from other calculations and take up approximately 22.5 gb of space.
Can I increase the swap space when I use a mac?

M=nan(90,1,1633);
for i=1:90
M(i,:,:)=median(S(i,:,:),2);
end
