Sports medicine is not a discipline reserved only for athletes ¡V the most common problems patients present with relate to the musculoskeletal system (such as strains, fractures and breaks) as well as related injuries, conditions and ailments which include concussion, digestive issues, chronic fatigue, infectious diseases, depressions and respiratory/ sleep disorders. These injuries and issues may have their origins on the sporting field, but more commonly are sustained at home, in the workplace, driving or operating machinery or simply partaking in daily activities and hobbies.

Dr Pitsis is a dedicated and leading specialist in his field, focused on returning patients to their pre injury state, and even helping them to improve from there, promoting a life of health and longevity.

Dr Pitsis completed his medical degree at the University of Sydney in 1993 and combined his passion for sport and medicine by obtaining his Fellowship with the Australasian College of Sport and Exercise Physicians in 2004. Dr Pitsis also completed his Diploma in Paediatrics in 1996 and a Masters of Sports Medicine in 2002 at University of New South Wales.

Between 2013 and 2017, Dr Pitsis was the Chief Medical Officer for the Cronulla Sharks NRL team and played an integral role in the success of the team, particularly during their history making 2016 premiership victory.
