Marcus A. Rothermich, MD is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon with fellowship training in sports medicine. Dr. Rothermich treats patients at our Birmingham, Cullman, and Trussville clinic locations.

Dr. Rothermich attended college at the University of Notre Dame and was roommates with Dr. Michael K. Ryan, also an orthopaedic surgeon at Andrews Sports Medicine. He earned his medical degree from the University of Virginia and served as the President of the Orthopaedic Society at the medical school.

He completed his residency in orthopaedic surgery in St. Louis, Missouri at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in affiliation with Washington University in St. Louis. He also completed fellowship training in sports medicine at the American Sports Medicine Institute and Andrews Sports Medicine.

Dr. Rothermich has extensive training in both general orthopaedic surgery and complex sports medicine techniques. He has a particular interest in elbow reconstruction in overhead athletes, rotator cuff repairs, complex knee surgery and total joint replacement. Dr. Rothermich is one of only two orthopaedic surgeons in Birmingham, Alabama who has been extensively trained to utilize Zimmer Biomet's ROSA® Robotic Knee System for total knee replacements.

Dr. Rothermich believes that all patients, from recreational “weekend warriors” to elite athletes, deserve and should expect a high attention to detail and a shared decision making process to optimize their outcomes.

Dr. Rothermich brings extensive sports medicine experience having acted as a member of the medical teams for various institutions and organizations. Dr. Rothermich currently serves as team physician for the USFL's Birmingham Stallions, Hewitt-Trussville High School, Pinson Valley High School, Oneonta High School and Springville High School. He previously provided on-site medical coverage for the Troy University football, SEC Baseball Tournament, Birmingham Barons, Birmingham Ballet, and Mountain Brook High School. 

Prior to joining Andrews Sports Medicine, Dr. Rothermich was affiliated with South Florida Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine. In that role, he proudly served as a consultant for the New York Mets as well as the team physician for various local organizations and high schools.

Dr. Rothermich is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) as well as the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM), serving on the committee that writes the annual Self-Assessment Examination for the AOSSM. He also reviews grant applications for the Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF) and is a peer reviewer for multiple orthopedic journals. Dr. Rothermich has presented nationally and his research is published in several peer-reviewed medical journals and textbooks.

He is married to Alissa Rothermich, an Emmy-nominated television anchor and reporter. Alissa previously worked at WIAT CBS 42 and co-anchored the CBS42 Morning News with Art Franklin. The Rothermichs lived in Birmingham during his fellowship training at Andrews Sports Medicine and realized very quickly that it was where they wanted to plant roots and raise their family. They have three children, Ben, Ella, and Teddy and enjoy exploring Alabama with family hikes on the weekends. 

Dr. Rothermich is also an active recreational athlete, finishing several marathons against the advice of his wife and multiple orthopaedic providers.
