Long recognized for his innovative wellness strategies, he has served as a consultant to other physicians seeking to provide anti-aging and integrative wellness strategies to their medical practices, as well as providing state-of-the-art guidance to a select group of anti-aging patients, since 1996. In addition, he is the founder of two, nutritional products companies, Ideal Nutrition, LLC, and Frontier Nutritional Research, LLC.

    Dr. Gitterle is a graduate of the University of Texas Medical School at San Antonio, and a member of the clinical faculty of the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. For 5 years he served as Medical Director of a high-acuity, regional emergency department. At present, he serves as Medical Director of the Hyperbaric Medicine and Wound Care specialty unit, as well as Chairman of the Infection Control Committee, and the Limb Salvage Commitee, at one of the top 50 hospitals in the US.

    Dr. Gitterle is board certified in Emergency Medicine (BCEM of American Academy of Physician Specialists), and was also one of the first physicians in the US to pass the demanding, written board examination of the American Board of Anti-Aging Medicine (ABAAM). He holds certifications in Advanced Trauma Life Support, Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support, and is a member of the American College of Emergency Physicians. He is also trained and certified in Hyperbaric Medicine.

    His research has included the use of advanced information tools for decision analysis in medical diagnosis, including research using the Mass General Hospital DxPlain System, for which he was recognized for outstanding research as a resident. He has appeared on Fox TV, and nationally syndicated radio, discussing such topics as anti-aging, immune enhancement and natural wellness strategies.

    Dr. Gitterle is an audio engineer, and has worked with major label recording artists, and on film and commercial projects, including international documentary productions. He is an avid electronic experimenter and licensed amateur radio operator (KF5IAE).

    He is also a proponent of alternative energy, having lived completely “off grid” since 2005, in a solar powered home, using some of the most advanced, currently available alternative energy technology. He has designed and implemented several of the key subsystems at this residence, including a solar-powered, air driven groundwater irrigation system, and parts of the energy storage system.

    Living off grid has created the impetus to develop a wide range of expertise in the area of system design and evaluation in alternative energy, particularly in the areas of climate control, energy storage, and remote, system monitoring.

    He lives in Central Texas with his wife, noted sculptor Heather Carter, and two sons.
