Sanjay Mohanty, MD

Assistant Professor of Surgery

550 N. University Blvd.
Room 1295

Indianapolis, IN 46202


Born and raised in Indianapolis, I moved away for my undergraduate work, and training in general and colon and rectal surgery before returning to the area.  My clinical interests include the spectrum of benign and malignant colorectal pathology, particularly inflammatory bowel disease and rectal cancer, including minimally invasive surgery, sphincter-sparing surgery, and organ-sparing treatment strategies for rectal cancer. I am also a trained health services researcher with interests in quality improvement, surgical decision making, novel surgical outcome metrics, particularly in older adults,  and long-term cancer survivorship. I’m committed to an approach to my clinical and scholarly work that is multidisciplinary, evidence-based, innovative, and sensitive to the values and preferences of my patients. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, music, reading, hiking, fitness, cooking, and professional basketball.
