Director of Regenerative Medicine, Dr. Bharara Receives Faces of Washington Recognition

Virginia Spine Institute’s Director of Regenerative Medicine, Dr. Bharara has won the 2021 Face of Regenerative Medicine Award in three consecutive years from Washingtonian Magazine. Dr. Bharara is a leader in non-surgical treatment for orthopedic and sports pain/injuries.

As a leading practitioner in the field of Regenerative Medicine, Dr. Niteesh Bharara redefines non-surgical treatment options for active individuals suffering from spine or orthopedic joint, tendon, and ligament conditions. He leads the Mid-Atlantic region in performing effective, natural regenerative therapies such as stem cell therapyplatelet-rich plasma (PRP), prolotherapy, and micro-fragmented adipose/Lipogems procedures. Dr. Bharara’s distinguished expertise within this innovative field earned him the title of Washingtonian’s 2021 Face of Regenerative Medicine — a prestigious distinction presented to only one individual; thus, cementing him as a leader in the field. He has also traveled extensively internationally to lecture, teach, and train fellow physicians on the most advanced alternatives to surgery.

Dr. Bharara’s modern surgical alternatives benefit athletes and weekend warriors alike. He carefully pinpoints and treats underlying sources of pain without relying on medication or surgery — ultimately leading to increased function and mobility with a far shorter recovery time than traditional treatments.

His sought-after medical expertise is rooted in physical medicine and rehabilitation and balanced by his passion for delivering personalized patient care. After being injured in a high school soccer game, Dr. Bharara realized he wanted to help others recover from ailments and get back to activities they love — just like 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 and improve their quality of life.

Dr. Bharara listens intently and works intensively to bridge treatment gaps by utilizing the body’s natural healing process to alleviate pain — all while supporting the patient’s goals for recovery. His philosophy promotes the practice of innovative and safe treatment options.
