State of the Art Anti-Aging and Preventative Care

Revitalife of Sarasota: Health and Wellness – Anti-Aging

Who we are

Revitalife Vitality Center of Sarasota is a state-of-the-art health and wellness facility that is committed to helping our patients achieve optimal health and function throughout the different stages of their lives. We achieve this by offering a variety of preventive anti-aging therapies, bioidentical hormone replacement treatments and stem cell therapies, as well as revolutionary treatments to achieve optimal sexual performance for both men and women.

Our services are beyond compare

With a focus on prevention, RevitaLife develops customized plans that are tailored to meet the individual needs and goals of each patient, while addressing existing health issues that may affect the treatments.

CoolSculpting®

One of the most requested therapies for our patients who are fighting resistant fat with diet and exercise but not getting the results they desire, CoolSculpting® delivers proven results. It’s a nonsurgical and noninvasive body contouring and body sculpting procedure, so recovery and downtime is not a concern.

Hormones and BioTe®

Optimizing hormone levels through the use of BioTe hormone therapy protects patients from the effects of aging, including preventing or postponing the onset of chronic diseases. At RevitaLife, we use bioidentical hormones, which are an exact replica of the hormones naturally produced by the body and can thus be metabolized by the body in the same way as the patient’s own hormones.

IV Therapy Immune Booster

RevitaLife offers IV Therapy as an immune booster to replenish lost nutrients, boost the immune system, fight illness, improve memory and concentration and increase energy and vitality. This therapy uses only top-quality ingredients from board-certified compounding pharmacies, and has no preservatives or additives.

Sexual Health

GAINSWave™ is a viable option to achieve male enhancement without drugs or the harmful effects associated with them. It is not a surgical procedure, is completely noninvasive and has yielded positive results in 80% of men with ED and 86% of all men who have received this treatment.

For female sexual dysfunction, one of the most effective solutions is our V-Shot™, a vaginal rejuvenation procedure that is completely natural because it uses both platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the patient’s own blood and stem cells from the patient’s body to stimulate regenerative properties and improve sexual function. We also administer O-Shots®, which use PRP to help grow and regenerate healthy new tissue in the injected areas. The results include increased libido, increased lubrication, more frequent and stronger orgasms, heightened sensitivity, and more tightness.

Skin Tightening and Wrinkle Reduction

Even with a healthy diet, plenty of exercise, adequate hydration and sufficient sunscreen, wrinkles are still a natural part of aging. But you don’t have to let a few wrinkles make you look older than you feel. RevitaLife can help you with facial rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction with a variety of injectable treatments, like Juvéderm® and Restylane®, for smoother, more youthful looking skin.

Grubbs, MD, attended both undergraduate college and medical school in his home state before completing his residency in Diagnostic Radiology at the University of Tennessee. He is board certified by the American Board of Radiology and is currently studying for board certification in Anti-Aging Medicine.

Fascinated with how the field of Interventional Radiology was transforming minimally invasive surgery and its benefits for patients, Dr. Grubbs took a fellowship in Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology at the prominent and prestigious Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute at Baptist Hospital of Miami. There he learned the fundamentals of many procedures he now performs. In 1993, after completing his fellowship, Dr. Grubbs received his Board Certification in Interventional Radiology from the American Board of Radiology. The following year, Dr. Grubbs moved to the Florida Suncoast where he specialized in Diagnostic, Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology.

In 2006, he established his own practice, Sarasota Interventional Radiology (SIR). As a pioneer and one of the first Interventional Radiologists to introduce and perform some of today’s most sophisticated minimally invasive procedures, Dr. Grubbs and SIR proudly offer today’s most cutting-edge treatments for conditions that once required open surgery. Equipped with three procedure rooms and a nine-bed recovery suite, SIR provides nonsurgical treatment along with advanced diagnostic technologies. Dr. Grubbs performs a majority of his procedures utilizing SIR’s 128-slice CT, the latest and most advance CT technology that offers pristine image quality, 3D reconstruction, and ultra-low dose radiation.

In the fall of 2014, Dr. Grubbs opened the RevitaLife Vitality Center of Sarasota, an anti-aging clinic that combines preventative care and cutting edge technology and provides the latest in aesthetics and regenerative, functional, and metabolic medicine. At RevitaLife, Dr. Grubbs offers customized options for achieving optimal health and function for patients of all ages.
