After completing his residency at Stanford University and the Medical College of Wisconsin Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, Dr. Stavrakos completed his Sports Medicine fellowship at the Medical College of Wisconsin. He now brings his expertise in musculoskeletal/sports medicine to his patients at Heritage Regenerative Medicine.

Dr. Stavrakos is a certified practitioner of BioTE® bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) and certified in cosmetic medicine through the National Laser Institute. He also serves as chief medical officer for New Life Regenerative Medicine, an FDA-registered tissue bank that provides superior quality biologic products for musculoskeletal and cosmetic procedures.

Dr. Stavrakos is a member and guest lecturer with the American Osteopathic Association of Prolotherapy and Regenerative Medicine (AOAPRM) and a Stem Cell Physicians Network member. Dr. Stavrakos is also the author of the e-book, “The Athlete’s Secret to Conquering Pain – Heal Your Body and Boost Performance Through Regenerative Medicine.”

At Heritage Regenerative Medicine, he uses his expertise in platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, prolotherapy, ozone therapy, and biologics such as Wharton's jelly, amniotic tissue, and exosomes, to help patients recover from treatment-resistant sports injuries, chronic pain, and conditions like arthritis.

Heritage Regenerative Medicine also uses biologics to help patients who require hair restoration, facial revitalization, and sexual rejuvenation treatments. Patients can benefit from intravenous (IV) therapies for issues that range from immune support to fibromyalgia, and Dr. Stavrakos is highly skilled in the use of BHRT to restore hormonal balance. In addition, he can assess and treat patients suffering from both acute and long COVID-19 symptoms to undergo immune-building therapies.

At Heritage Regenerative Medicine, the philosophy is that no one needs to sit on the sidelines of life because of problems like sports injuries, joint pain, lack of energy, chronic disease, or issues associated with aging. Dr. Stavrakos and his team take a holistic approach to patient health, address all the factors causing pain and suffering, and develop a customized plan for patients so they can start living instead of just observing.
