Niteesh Bharara, M.D., D.A.B.P.M.R.

Director of Regenerative Medicine
Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation

As the Director of Regenerative Medicine, Dr. Bharara has redefined outpatient treatment options for athletes and active individuals suffering with spine or orthopaedic joint, tendon, and/or ligament conditions. Regenerative medicine offers an alternative to surgery, utilizing the body’s natural healing process to restore maximum function and provide pain relief. Rather than mask the symptoms, regenerative medicine utilizes the body’s natural healing process to rebuild damaged tissue, heal injuries more effectively, and eliminate pain. This modern treatment solution seeks to treat the underlying source of pain without relying on medication or surgery often times leading to a shorter recovery period, and increased function and mobility. 

Dr. Bharara’s distinguished expertise within this field earned him 2019 Face of Regenerative Medicine, and Top Doctor recognition in consecutive years by Washingtonian Magazine, Northern Virginia Magazine, and Virginia Livin Magazine. He is leading the Mid-Atlantic region in performing effective natural therapies such as stem cell therapyplatelet-rich plasma (PRP), prolotherapy, and lipogems injections. 

Heralded for his compassionate approach, Dr. Bharara promotes the practice of effective and safe treatment options focused on the unique recovery goals of each patient. He takes an interdisciplinary approach that utilizes a synergistic team of physical therapists, massage therapists, sports trainers, aquatic therapists, and nutritionists, all working together to alleviate pain.
