Jeffrey Piccirillo DO, is a board certified orthopedic surgeon, who developed an interest in platelet rich plasma, the first time a centrifuge was rolled into his operating suite in 2002.
He did his undergraduate work at The Pennsylvania State University in 1994, and attended medical school at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, graduating valedictorian in 1989. He continued his training at the Chicago Osteopathic Medical Center in Orthopedic Surgery from 1989 t0 2004, and entered in private practice.
Dr. Piccirillo, practiced general orthopedics, with an interest in adult reconstruction and sports medicine. He served as team physician for Joliet, Illinois West High School , Grinnell, Iowa High School, And Grinnell College.
In 2002, when a representative from one of the major joint replacement companies brought a centrifuge into the operating room, his love for regenerative medicine and PRP began. In 2009, he switched from an surgical practice to one focusing on the regeneration of tissue, not replacement, and his mindset on medicine began to evolve. As his protocols, and products evolved, Dr. Piccirillo began consulting with other practices, teaching them how to get on the regenerative medicine platform. He completed a chapter entitled “Stem Cell Medicine- What does the future hold??” in Dr. Judson Brandeis’ book, Optimizing Manhood, which will be released in early 2021
He is married, with daughter (Tricia) in Chicago, and a son (Brian) at home in Florida. When he is not teaching in the United States and around the world, you will find him in his garden, or writing in front of his computer.
