About Me

I practice both reconstructive and aesthetic surgery. I’m interested in complex abdominal wall reconstruction (hernia repair), the surgical treatment of migraine headaches, cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the breasts, chest wall reconstruction, body contouring, lower extremity reconstruction, and microsurgery.

What I enjoy about The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is how we take care of our patients. Working together, we try to solve problems using the latest techniques and technology. We approach each patient one at a time.

There’s no cookie-cutter approach, cookbook or recipe I follow. I sit down with patients and listen to their problems and concerns. I try to give them a result they’ll be happy with.

I spend the time to get to know my patients and appreciate their concerns. Then, I tell them whether I can reliably and predictably give them the results they want.

I treat my patients like they are my family. If it’s not good enough for my family, it’s not good enough for my patients.

    Was great.

    I was amazed by the visit w/Dr. Narula and Dr. Janis. In my 68 years, I have never had such a comprehensive, complete, informative and satisfying consultation as I did that day with those two doctors.

    Dr. Janis knows what he is looking for. He instilled confidence in me that I have found the right person who can help me - finally. He is precise & cautious. He is very explicit in what needs to happen next - no surprises. He is kind & sociable as well as very professional. I know HE can help me!

    Dr. Jeffrey E. Janis, MD was very professional, explained care expectations well as well as what to do post op. I rate my experience w/him a 10/10 and look forward to referring people to Dr. Janis for care.
