Dr. Niteesh Bharara has redefined surgical alternatives for athletes and active individuals seeking to delay or even avoid surgery. His unique expertise allows him to bridge treatment gaps by activating the body’s natural healing process. These safe and effective treatments, known as regenerative medicine procedures, serve as a modern solution to major orthopedic injuries and spine conditions. His sought-after outcomes in stem cell therapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and micro-fragmented fat therapy have helped people worldwide find new ways to get back to their physically demanding professions and exercise while avoiding the downtime of surgery.
As a pioneer in the field of regenerative medicine, he has been named Washingtonian Top Doctor and Face of Regenerative Medicine in 2021 – a prestigious distinction presented to only one individual. He is one of the few elite 2021 Top Doctors performing regenerative medicine in the DC-metro area.
Over the past decade, Dr. Bharara has performed regenerative medicine procedures for patients from a wide range of backgrounds and ages. He recently led research to show the effectiveness of bone marrow aspirate concentrate (stem cell therapy) to resolve low back pain. The findings suggest that intradiscal injection of autologous bone marrow aspirate concentrate has the potential to be an effective non-surgical treatment for chronic low back pain.
His drive to become a physician first began with a high school soccer injury. Dr. Bharara wanted to help others recover from ailments and get back performing the activities they love, just as his physicians did for him. Today, he carries that same commitment to each of his patients so that they, too, can regain an active lifestyle without undergoing surgery.
