    Robert Barbalinardo, MD FACS

Dr. Robert Barbalinardo graduated magna cum laude from the premed program at Georgetown University in 1978. He then returned to his home state to attend The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, earning the Doctor of Medicine degree in 1982. Dr. Rob completed his Surgical Residency under the supervision of Dr. Benjamin F. Rush at UMDNJ - New Jersey Medical School, including his final year as Chief Surgical Resident in 1987.

Since entering the private practice of surgery in 1987, Dr. Barbalinardo has continued to advance surgical treatment in this (Essex County) community. He initiated the stereotactic breast biopsy at St. Michael's Medical Center, later bringing this skill to Mountainside Hospital as well. His interest in colon and rectal surgery led to additional training in an advanced form of surgical treatment for rectal cancer known as Total Mesorectal Excision under the guidance of Dr Bill Heald, the world wide authority on this technique. Dr Barbalinardo is one of few general surgeons performing full colonoscopy, a procedure which allows him to fully visualize any colorectal tumor prior to embarking on surgical treatment. He also performs a full array of laporoscopic techniques related both to general and colorectal surgery.

Dr Barbalinardo is certified by the American Board of Surgery and is also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He has been elected to represent his colleagues at Mountainside Hospital in numerous capacities including medical staff committees, the Medical Board, and his current role as President of the Medical Staff at Mountainside Hospital. In that capacity he also serves on the Board of Trustees of the Atlantic Health System.
