In Dr. Jain’s experience, nearly all allergies can be treated by identifying a patient’s triggers and desensitizing the body through immunotherapy to help them return to normal lives. Some of his groundbreaking contributions include, performing one of the first oral immunotherapy (OIT) treatment for food allergies in a private practice setting and the first multi-nut OIT in the world. Dr Jain’s team was the first to desensitize patients to many different foods including coconut, garlic, shrimp, fish, oat, and buckwheat.
At Columbia, Dr. Jain and his team have developed unique sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) protocols which are being used to treat a wide variety of medical conditions such as atopic dermatitis and eosinophilic esophagitis. Columbia was also the first private practice in the US to do lymph node desensitization treatments for environmental allergies.
Dr. Jain has won numerous awards and has been consistently listed as one of America’s top physicians over the past several years. He is also the co-author of the book, Treating Food Allergies With Modern Medicine.
