On choosing to specialize in the area of hip and knee...
When he's not practicing medicine...
“I find this one of the few areas of medicine where an extremely debilitated patient can be given back their independence and returned to the activities that are important to their quality of life whether that means playing golf or playing with their grandkids. It is very gratifying work.”
“My wife and I spend as much time as possible with our children. We spend a lot of time at ball games, taekwondo, going to the mall, at water parks and anywhere we can spend time with the kids. We especially love to go camping and hiking out west. We love the outdoors and participating in extreme races such as the tough mudder type events.”
On being part of Team MOI...
“Medicine has become so complex that you really need a team to treat the whole person. At MOI we are all very specialized, which means we can find the necessary expertise to treat complex conditions from within our own ranks. You really find very few practices that have this number of orthopaedic surgeons with fellowship training behind them. That’s a paradigm you usually find only at a university. It’s a really wonderful thing to be part of such a distinguished and talented team.”
On treating patients...
“I treat every patient as if they were my own mother, father, grandfather, sister, or brother. I love my family, and I keep that in mind when someone walks through the door of my office. If that’s where your focus is, you are going to provide the best possible care for that individual. That is my goal.”
Who could not love Dr. Jain? You feel like he's treating you like a family member. Outstanding.
Dr. Jain really was a miracle worker. He not only fixed my knee, but he gave me my life back.
