Dr. Kundu completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Western Ontario followed by medical school and a post graduate residency in Diagnostic Imaging at the University of Toronto. He completed a Fellowship in Angiography and Interventional Radiology (Minimally Invasive Image Guided Procedures) at the University Health Network in Toronto. He is a active fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons. Dr. Kundu is licensed to practise in Ontario and is board certified in the United States. He is also one a handful of physicians in Canada certified by The American Board of Phlebology in the diagnosis and treatment of venous disease. He is also certified as a Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation by the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonography.  

He is a member of the Radiological Society of North America, Society of Interventional Radiology, the American College of Phlebology, the American Society of Angiology, The Society of Vascular Ultrasound, Canadian Interventional Radiology Association, American College of Radiology and the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe. Dr. Kundu is a member of the Technology Assessment Committee, Standards of Practise Committee, Annual Meeting Abstract Committee and Quality Improvement Committee at the Society of Interventional Radiology. He is also a member of the Public Education Committee at the American College of Phlebology, member of the scientific abstract committee at the Radiological Society of North America and a member of the Abstract Committee at the Society of Vascular Ultrasound. Dr. Kundu has also served on the editorial board of the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology and Journal of Vascular Access. He is also a expert reviewer for the Journal of Endovascular Therapy, Journal of Phlebology, European Journal of Radiology and Journal of the Canadian Association of Radiology.

 He has also served as Chair of the Standards of Practise Committee and Standards Division Executive Councilor at The Society of Interventional Radiology. He has been awarded Fellowship in the American Society of Angiology, Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe, Society of Interventional Radiology and American College of Phlebology for his contribution to Endovascular Medicine and Minimally Invasive Image Guided Procedures. Currently Dr. Kundu is involved in giving lectures worldwide on the technique and most recent advancements in Endovenous Laser Ablation for varicose veins and the latest treatment techniques for spider veins.

In addition to his duties as Medical Director of Scarborough Vascular Ultrasound, Midland X-Ray & Ultrasound and The Vein Institute of Toronto, Dr. Kundu also practices at Scarborough Hospital-General Campus where he founded the uterine fibroid embolization program, carotid stenting program along with a number of new leading edge minimally invasive imaged guided procedures. He is currently the medical director of the uterine fibroid embolization program, carotid stent program and co-medical director of the aortic aneurysm endograft program at the Scarborough Hospital. Dr. Kundu is also affiliated with the University of Toronto and involved in teaching residents and fellows at the Scarborough Hospital. Dr. Kundu is currently involved in a number of research projects including assessment of covered stents for the treatment of central venous disease in hemodialysis patients; Assessing the flow characteristics post balloon angioplasty for hemodialysis intervention; and optimizing treatment of spider veins using surface laser therapy.
