(KNSI) - A Waite Park doctor is being filmed by a national network for a TV pilot because of his office's cutting edge technology.

Medical Director of Rejuv Medical, Dr. Joel Baumgartner, is hosting the pilot for NBC called, "HEALTHOVATE With Dr. B."

Dr. B and Rejuv Medical have been offering platelet rich plasma to patients, used by the top athletes in the world, to help in recovery for more than 10 years.

KNSI caught up with Dr. B during a break in taping at their location near River's Edge Park.

"It's no longer Star Wars medicine, this is cutting edge frontier medicine, we have been doing this for 10 years in Minnesota, and I think because we have been doing it for so long, we're kind of known nationally for doing this, and now there's a lot of international things we're doing and I think that's why they picked us up, and said hey, there is something going on there, we should look into it."

Dr. B says the pilot will talk about plenty of other options, other than going under the knife, for people looking to get healthier.

"How do we lose weight, how do we get our bodies back into shape, how do we sleep and restore our bodies in other ways, so there are a lot of other things that should be done first, before we start prescribing medications, a lot of thing things we can do before going to surgery."

Rejuv Medical says the four episode pilot will air on NBC Sundays at 11 a.m. sometime later this fall.
