Dr. HemantJain was born in Delhi. He comes from a family with a rich heritage of medical professionals, of doctors and hakims. His ancestral family had migrated from Barnala in Punjab in the 1950s [ ref photo]. His father, Dr. H. K. Jain is the third-generation medical professional and the first to study western allopathic medicine. Dr. Hemant Jain did his primary education from the prestigious Modern School, Barakhamba Road – an institution which has been educating the finest minds in this country for a century. He received the Headmistress Award in Raghubir Singh Junior Modern School – the primary wing of the Modern School. He was among the first awardees of the Vinod Dixit award presented to him by the wife of Mr. Vinod Dikshit, Delhi’s late Chief Minister the Hon’ble Mrs.Sheila Dixit.

After completing his matriculation from ModernSchool, Dr. Hemant Jain did his M.B.B.S from JJM Medical College in Davangere. He received distinctions in Anatomy, Biochemistry, Ophthalmology and Obstetrics and Gynecology. He held the first position in all these subjects. During his education in Davangere, among his close friends and classmate was Dr. Someshekar. now renowned onco-surgeon in Bangalore

After completing his undergraduate education, he did his internship at Hindu Rao hospital in Delhi.

Following this, he was admitted to the Kasturba Medical College in Manipal where he pursued his post-graduation studies in the field of Pediatrics. He worked under Professor Nalini Bhaskarand who was his mentor, teacher and research guide. His training was also supervised by Prof Pushpa Kini and Prof Diwakar (Neonatology). He did his thesis work in von Willebrand disease. The disease is a common albeit under-recognized familial blood disorder which underlies many cases of epistaxis (nosebleed) in children. Alongside Professor Bhaskarand, Dr. Hemant proposed a simple aspirin tolerance test to diagnose this disorder in places where direct serum testing was not feasible.

After successfully defending his thesis and completion of his degree, he returned back to Delhi. In Delhi, he worked as a senior resident at Apollo Hospital. He worked in the PICU – Pediatric Intensive Care Unit under renowned faculty like Dr.Praveen Khilnani, and Prof. Anupal Sibal.

Afterward, he joined Moolchand Medcity and worked as a Sr.Resident for two years and later as Jr.Consultant for a year following his residency. At Moolchand, he was mentored by Sr. pediatricians including Dr. U B Lal, Dr. P C Kanduja and Dr. Subash Dawar. His colleagues included Dr. Nitya Wadhwa who later went ahead to be a part of Multicentric Zinc trial for diarrhea patients. Dr. Hemant was actively involved in teaching at Moolchand and was instrumental in starting the DNB program in pediatrics at the hospital.

Later he moved to Tirath Ram Shah hospital in order to be closer to home. He worked as an associate consultant in pediatrics forming a unit with Dr. Subash Dawar. At Tirath Ram, Dr. Hemant Jain under the guidance of the Medical Superintendent Dr. A K Dubey started a DNB program in pediatrics.

In 2005, he went to Sydney, Australia for higher studies in the field of Neonatology – the field for the care of extremely young infants. In Sydney, he worked at The Royal Hospital for Women in Randwick under Professor Kei Lui, Prof Ju lee Oei and Prof Bolleshetty. Later he moved to the Liverpool Hospital as a fellow in Neonatology and worked under Dr. Ian Callander ( creator of the famed neonatal database ) Dr. Robert Guaran, Dr. Jacqueline Stack, Dr. Rodney Tobiansky and Dr.John Levison

His time in Australia left him with a deep impression of the importance of research and emphasis placed on publications in the western world. Acknowledging, his own ignorance in the field of research, Dr. Hemant joined the UNSW as an international student, in pursuit of a Master’s in Public Health. He also enhanced his research aptitude by taking an Advanced Course in Biostatistics. He juggled his education alongside his neonatal fellowship commitments through distance learning and limited onsite classes. On the heels of finishing his Masters in Public Health, Dr. Hemant Jain enrolled and completed his Master’s in Health Management [ref: Photo] from the University of New South Wales

At Liverpool, his become closely associated Dr. Ian and his Neonatal Database project. Afterward, he became the coordinator for the project in India and upon his return to India, he invested his money and time to convert the desktop project into a web-based portal which was successfully launched in 2009. In Australia,he was also actively involved in the teaching of medical staff and held the position of Conjoint Associate Lecturerat UNSW

Dr. Hemant returned to India in 2008, after the completion of his neonatal fellowship and both his masters’ degrees.

He joined the Dr.B L Kapur Super Specialty Hospital in Delhi and was given the charge of the Neonatal Unit. The hospital was reinventing itself as a large tertiary care corporate hospital in Delhi. At BLK, Dr. Jain was instrumental in starting the neonatal ICU. He was deeply involved in the designing of the new unit, establishing its protocols, guiding the correct equipment purchase and even the proper positioning of cribs as per international norms.

In 2010 Dr. Jain worked with UNICEF on behalf of the National Neonatology Forum. The assignment involved visits to the rural hinterland and interiors countryside regions of Bihar and Rajasthan. He inspected the functioning of UNICEF sponsored nurseries in district government hospitals. Dr Jain also helped in the design of a neonatal ICU which was funded with help of UNICEF in Patna, Bihar. As a part of a Nestle outreach program Dr. Jain has also presented talks in various second tier cities across India.

His return to India also precipitated his pursuits of academic interests in the form of the Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research abbreviated as JCDR. JCDR publishes peer-reviewed articles and by 2017 was widely indexed in PubMed, SCOPUS and Web of Science. Dr. Jain has worked and continues to work for the betterment of JCDR. JCDR has grown from a small bi-monthly online publication to a massive monthly print publication. By the end of 2017 JCDR had published over 11,500 articles, case reports and letters to the editor. In 2012 Dr. Jain with his colleagues also started a neonatal journal, the Indian Journal of Neonatal Medicine and Research, which continues to grow and is circulated in both in print as well as online.

After establishing the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Dr. BL Kapur Hospital, Dr. Jain decided to devote his full time to his role as Chief Editor of JCDR and his flourishing private practice. He was also an enthusiast participant at the World Association of Medical Editors held on Oct 2015. At the WAME conference, Dr. Jain and his editorial team presented six posters. The association honored his work by presenting him with the Dr. Bruce Squires Best Abstract Award.

During this period Dr. Jain also resumed his pediatric practice at the ancestral Pahari Dhiraj Clinic where his father had practiced for decades.[ref: Photo].Dr. Hemant’s practices in the highly densely populated Sadar Bazar area of Old Delhi. In Sadar Bazar, Dr. Jain worked tirelessly to change the practice of parents using above-the-counter anti-diarrheal antibiotics. Instead of this, he stressed on the use of probiotics and ORS as an initial treatment. After years of dogged effort, most patients now happily avoid non-advised direct antibiotic therapy and prefer probiotics and ORS prior to visiting specialists. He has also aggressively worked on reducing Vitamin-D deficiency in the region. The deficiency was rampant and widespread in the area because of lack of exposure to the sun due to crowed houses and use of veil by Muslim ladies. Muslims form around 50% of the population in the area. Dr. Jain recognized the problem early in his clients and in the general population and pioneered the use of prophylactic Vitamin-D in children. Dr. Jain started this therapy years before it became a standard in the care for infants. Similarly, he is also passionate to discourage use of FDC (fixed drug combinations).He also recognized the lack of proper and timed delivery of medicine to a child as a contributory cause of treatment failure. He designed his prescription pads in a way to decrease such errors [Ref: Photo]. The pads also include place for parents to regularly record the temperature of the child encouraging a more objective assessment [Ref Photo].

In Jan 2019, Dr. Jain has Completed 21 years of clinical practice.

On average, there is a waiting period between 15 minutes to an hour. In evening at Pahari Dhiraj waiting time can be much longer. The waiting period is less in the morning. Patients who are not in need of urgent medical attention are advised to avoid Monday and Thursday evening due to higher waiting time. On these days’ consultation charges are reduced for the benefit of less privileged patients and thus these evenings tend to have a longer waiting period. On other days telephonic appointment can be taken which can significantly decrease the waiting time. However it should be noted that even then patients may have to wait for a little while as consult durations are difficult to predict.

INR 500

Yes, you are welcome to take a second opinion. You are advised to make an appointment for the consult.

I administer vaccinations on all working days. However, due to the long waiting time, I advise patients to avoid getting vaccinated on Monday and Thursday evening.

These vary according to the vaccination that needs to be done.

Yes, you can call Mrs. Bhavana at +91 87505 00606 between 10:00-12:00 AM Monday to Friday to find out the vaccination charges.

Generally, vaccinations are very safe and necessary for the health of the children. However, vaccines can have very real allergic reactions and other untoward effects. It is best to discuss these with doctor during the visit.
