As a former starting midfielder and four-year scholarship recipient on the nationally ranked University of Virginia soccer team, Dr. Brantley Vitek naturally developed an interest in sports injuries. The son of an orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Vitek earned a BA in Philosophy from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville before receiving his medical degree from the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond. He then went on to complete a general surgery internship at the University of Colorado followed by an orthopaedic surgery residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston.

Upon finishing his residency, Dr. Vitek returned to Northern Virginia and began practicing orthopaedics with his father, a pioneer in arthroscopic knee surgery. After 4 years of practice partnered with his father, he merged that practice into OrthoVirginia and serves as a general orthopaedist with special interests in sports related injuries and arthroscopic surgery. Additionally, he is involved with the surgery and treatment of complex trauma patients seen at Inova Fairfax Hospital's Level 1 Trauma Center.

Dr. Vitek is a member of several professional medical organizations including the Medical Society of Virginia and the Fairfax County Medical Society. He is currently the team physician for James Madison High School in Fairfax County and previously served as a team physician for DC United Major League Soccer team. Additionally, Dr. Vitek also served as the medical director of the 2007 ACC Soccer Tournament and was a member of the medical staff for the 1999 Women's World Cup Soccer Tournament.

Along with his wife, Francine, and their sons, Kirby and Bailey, Dr. Vitek resides in Oakton, Virginia. In his leisure time, he enjoys skiing, backpacking, boating and playing soccer.
