Charles C. Pitts, Jr, MD is the newest member of The Foot & Ankle Center at Andrews Sports Medicine.
Dr. Pitts is a fellowship-trained, orthopaedic surgeon specializing in foot & ankle surgery. One of the aspects of foot & ankle surgery that drew Dr. Pitts to the sub-specialty is the breadth.

Additionally, he is able to help patients suffering from a wide variety of pathology, including: sports injuries, trauma and fractures, congenital and acquired deformities, ankle and foot arthritis and many more. In addition, he serves as team physician for Spain Park High School athletics.
Dr. Pitts was born and raised in Birmingham, and at the age of 14, his family moved to Charlotte, North Carolina. In high school, Dr. Pitts was an active high school student athlete, participating in football, lacrosse and wrestling.
Dr. Pitts earned a bachelor’s degree in neurobiology from Harvard University. After graduation, he earned his medical degree from Wake Forest School of Medicine. After medical school, he returned to Birmingham and completed an orthopaedic surgery residency at the UAB Hospital, where he was in the same residency class as Christopher M. Beaumont, MD, who is also an orthopaedic surgeon at Andrews Sports Medicine. Dr. Pitts completed a fellowship in foot & ankle orthopedic surgery at OrthoCarolina in Charlotte, North Carolina, just prior to joining Andrews Sports Medicine.
Dr. Pitts and his wife, Rachel, met while he was in residency at UAB, and they married in February, 2021. They welcomed their first child, Sarah Jane, in May, 2023.

I was born with bad bilateral bunions on both feet. It was very severe and caused my big toes to point towards my pinky toes. We are very good friends of Dr. Emily Bell Casey and she had seen me for the past 4 years about this issue. She monitored the growth plates and wanted to make sure they were closed before referring me for surgery.

About 10 years ago, an old, sports injury caught up with me. I played football in high school and broke my big toe on my right foot. Over the years, a bunion formed on that toe. The pain became so bad that I wasn’t able to sleep. I tried everything to make the pain go away: creams, hot baths, to compression socks. You name it, I tried it.

This past football season, we were on a 3rd and goal from the 1-yard line. I ran into the defender on the opposing team, and we rolled over each other. I hit my head into the defender’s chin but simultaneously remember feeling an extremely painful pop in my right ankle.
