Dr. Jamie Koufman is one of America’s leading laryngologists and experts on acid reflux; at her core, she is a pioneering researcher and educator. With almost four decades of clinical and scientific research focused on the diagnosis, treatment, and cell biology of reflux, Dr. Koufman personally coined the terms laryngopharyngeal reflux, silent reflux, airway reflux, and the newest term, respiratory reflux.
She is the Founder and Director of the Voice & Reflux Institute of New York, a comprehensive acid reflux and voice treatment center. She helped pioneer laryngeal framework (reconstructive) surgery, minimally-invasive laryngeal laser surgery, reflux testing, laryngeal electromyography, and transnasal esophagoscopy.
Dr. Koufman has lectured widely both nationally and internationally. She has received many awards, including the Honor Award and the Distinguished Service Awards of the American Academy Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery; The Newcomb Award of the American Laryngological Association (a lifetime achievement award for research in laryngology); the Broyles-Maloney of the American Broncho-Esophagological Association (ABEA); and most recently (2017), the Chevalier Jackson Award of the ABEA on the 100th Anniversary of the Association. She is the past-president of the ABEA and the New York Laryngology Society. Dr. Koufman has been listed among the Top Doctors in America every year since 1994.
New York Times best-selling author of a cycle of four books on acid reflux written for the general public, including Dropping Acid: The Reflux Diet Cookbook & Cure, The Chronic Cough Enigma, Dr. Koufman's Acid Reflux Diet, and Acid Reflux in Children.
