 Overview 
 overview
Nitin B. Jain, MD, MSPH is a faculty member in the Departments of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Orthopedics at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Jain’s research interests are focused on shoulder disorders, and he is currently PI on a NIH funded K-23 grant on rotator cuff tears. This grant aims to study operative and non-operative treatments for rotator cuff tears and the role of musculoskeletal ultrasound in the diagnosis or cuff tears. Dr. Jain has also published in the area of spinal cord injury including shoulder pain in wheelchair users. Dr. Jain has an active clinical practice with a focus on patients with shoulder issues and the use of musculoskeletal ultrasound for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes. Dr. Jain also has an interest in research on Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for use in rotator cuff tendinopathy.
