PRP - Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelets exist in your blood and are a small percentage of what makes up whole blood. We are able to concentrate your own blood in order to create a potent blend of cells to be reinjected into the site of pain.

We harness the power of these orthobiologics to heal bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments, helping you return to a pain-free life as soon as possible.

Client Testimonials

Dr. Gitelis is a master of his craft. I came to him with a painful and complicated injury that other doctors were unsure of how to treat…He truly cares about his patients and goes the extra mile to see they are well cared for!

- Ryan O’D

Dr. Gitelis is one of the most caring and competent doctors I have ever had the good fortune to diagnose my back and knee problems…He truly cares about his patients’ welfare first! All doctors should be this good!

- J.G.

I have been a patient of Dr. Gitelis for many years. You will never find a more compassionate physician. Dr. Gitelis takes time to visit with you, provides a detailed explanation of the diagnosis, and is always available to answer your questions. Dr. Gitelis is also a world authority on arthroscopic surgery. He is on top of the latest technology with regards to minimally invasive surgery.

- Thomas C

I saw Dr. Gitelis with a broken ankle. He opted to try a cast with my understanding that it might not heal right, and I may end up needing surgery if it did not. It would have been easy and profitable to default to surgery, but he cared about me, the patient. It did heal correctly, and I avoided surgery. Since then my husband has seen him with near miraculous results. You cannot do better if you need an orthopedic physician. We are so lucky to have someone of his caliber in the area.

- Deborah F

I had detached shoulder tendons and was in chronic pain. After seeing two other doctors who could not help me, I went to Dr Gitelis. He had just learned a new technique and could use it to repair my shoulder. After the operation, I feel like he had described a grass hut and presented me with the Taj Mahal. It was life changing. The pain is gone, and my range of motion is excellent. I highly recommend Dr. Gitelis.

- Robert F

Dr Gitelis is an amazing doctor and caring person. He has performed 3 shoulder surgeries on me because of my misfortunes and repaired my wife's knee so she can do everything she wants. When I had a spine issue he consulted and referred me to one of the best Doctors at Rush who had also fixed his back. I recommend Dr Gitelis to everyone who needs care. One of a kind.
