About Me

Brandon Fites, MD, always held a natural interest for the sciences, particularly biology. It was this interest that led him to pursue a career in medicine.

“I wanted to do something to help others,” he said. “In medicine, I have the opportunity to alleviate pain and improve people’s quality of life.”

Today, Dr. Fites is a specialist in sports medicine and orthopedic surgery at Avera Orthopedics in Aberdeen, SD.

Expert Care in Orthopedic Care

Dr. Fites addresses a wide range of medical concerns of the musculoskeletal system. His particular interest revolves around treating conditions and injuries from sports or related to repetitive movements.

Some of the conditions he treats include:

  • Shoulder dislocations
  • Meniscus injuries
  • ACL tears
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Nerve injuries

When it comes to sports medicine injuries, the goal is to treat the injury through nonsurgical measures. This personalized plan may include pain medications, cortisone shots, physical therapy, bracing—or a combination.

He and his team use the latest technology and techniques in surgery to help patients recover faster and with less pain.

"We often try other options before turning to surgery."

Active Lifestyle

When he’s not at work, Dr. Fites enjoys spending time with his family, a wife and four daughters. He loves supporting them in their endeavors, especially athletics.

Dr.Fites was very belittling both appointments I have had with him. Talking down to me and very rude. He acted like he was better than me and very unprofessional.

I appreciated that Dr. Fites shared his perspectives on how I can avoid surgery, and felt confident that we have a good plan for my healing. The nurse is amazing, so caring and responsive. This team is high functioning and I appreciate that as a busy person - they understand how to meet patients where they are and help them achieve their wellness goals.
