Mountainside Medical Group has announced that Kulvir Nandra, M.D., has joined the practice, adding colorectal surgery to the medical group’s offerings.

Gastrointestinal diseases can have a huge impact on an individual’s quality of life, and often go untreated. Colorectal surgeons have access to the latest surgical technologies to treat a wide variety of diseases of the intestinal tract, colon, rectal, anus and perianal area by surgical and medical means. Colorectal surgeons also deal with other organ tissues surrounding the gastrointestinal tract such as urinary and female reproductive systems.

After earning his medical degree at Florida State University Dr. Nandra completed his training in general surgery in Philadelphia, with further colorectal surgical training taking place at Rutgers University in New Jersey. Dr. Nandra is board certified in Surgery by the American Board of Surgery (ABS). He is also board certified in Colon and Rectal Surgery by the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery (ABCRS).

Dr. Nandra offers a wide range of colorectal surgery options with the latest robotic and minimally invasive techniques. Dr. Nandra wants his patients to have the knowledge they need to be empowered to make decisions about their care while under his guidance. “I aim to provide my patients with the most current information available for their condition, so together - we can make the best decisions for their care.” He believes in using the latest and most minimally invasive techniques for surgery.

“Dr. Nandra’s fellowship training in colon and rectal surgery, along with his experience with robotic surgery, makes him an asset to our patients and hospital team,” said Tim O’Brien, CEO of Mountainside Medical Center. “We are proud to welcome him to Mountainside Medical Group so we can expand the surgical services we provide to our community.”
