State of the Art Anti-Aging and Preventative Care

Gerald E. Grubbs, MD

A native Tennessean, Gerald E. 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.
