Héctor Luis Gaitán (born February 9, 1987 in Cruz Alta, Córdoba Province) is an Argentine football defender currently playing for Newell's Old Boys.

Gaitán made his debut in first division with Newell's on March 11, 2007, in a 1-0 victory over Argentinos Juniors. By 2008 he had established himself as a regular member of the first team, but mainly coming off the bench. He received his nickname, Patadita (little kick), for his tendency to commit penalty kicks during this season. In 2009 he joined Peruvian side Colegio Nacional Iquitos, and made his debut on February 15, against club Real Mamoré in Trinidad. On May 3, 2009, Gaitán scored his first goal as a refinero in a visit to club San José from Oruro.
