Valley Medical Group welcomes new medical director of pediatric endocrinology

Valley Health System said it recently announced the appointment of Dr. Indrajit Majumdar as medical director of pediatric endocrinology for Valley Medical Group.

Majumdar is board certified in pediatrics, pediatric endocrinology and obesity medicine. He specializes in inpatient and outpatient care for children and adolescents with various endocrinological and metabolic disorders.

Majumdar joins Valley from John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital in Buffalo, New York, where he served as the medical director of Children’s Healthy Weigh of Buffalo, a multidisciplinary pediatric and adolescent weight management center. He also served as the program coordinator for the American Diabetes Association-recognized Diabetes Self Care Management Education Program for the Diabetes Center at the Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo.

“I believe in a holistic approach to medicine. As an endocrinologist, I understand that our lifestyles, especially our sleep and eating habits, significantly affect human hormones,” Majumdar stated. “I am a patient-focused provider who believes that families come first. I see myself more as a coach and genuinely believe every family should be supported to help develop a structured lifestyle, and I strive to focus on helping families achieve their personal goals.”

“We are excited to grow our pediatric endocrinology team with the addition of Dr. Majumdar,” Dr. J. Antonio Quiros, chair of children’s services for Valley Medical Group, and clinical professor of pediatrics and faculty member at Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Hospital and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, said. “Dr. Majumdar’s knowledge and expertise in pediatric endocrinology, combined with his prior leadership experience, will serve as a valuable asset to our team. Dr. Majumdar is a nationally recognized leader in the area of pediatric diabetes and weight management and will be working with the Mount Sinai team in the development of a new Pediatric Bariatric Surgery Program as medical director.”
