About

Bio

As a Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation specialist, Dr. Marchetti is an expert in musculoskeletal conditions and performs interventional procedures including ultrasound and fluoroscopically guided injections. He has received training in regenerative medicine procedures through multiple training entities and can offer insight as to which procedures may be best suited for various conditions, including platelet rich plasma, prolotherapy, point of care bone marrow aspirate ("stem cell injections") and has working knowledge of true stem cell procedures that are done out of country (expanded autologous and allogenic umbilical stem cell treatments). Additionally, recognizing that regenerative medicine techniques offer the greatest chance of success in those who have optimal functioning of their own immune system, Dr. Marchetti incorporates a functional/integrative medicine approach to help his patients achieve "Peak Health and Performance". This includes optimizing nutrition, rehabilitative exercise, hormone balance, reducing inflammation and other negative health mediators. Dr. Marchetti practices in the DFW area and is licensed to practice medicine in Texas.

Specialties
