Dr. Pitts is originally from Chicago, IL but is a medical graduate of Vanderbilt School of Medicine in Nashville, TN. After Vanderbilt he completed residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. The focus of PM&R is restoration of function and quality of life.
In residency he gained much experience in musculoskeletal medicine, rehabilitation, spine and sports medicine along with some regenerative medicine. He also gained significant experience in fluoroscopically guided spinal procedures and peripheral injections. However, Dr. Pitts wanted to broaden his skills and treatment options beyond the current typical standards of care. Thus, he came to Colorado as a fellow to learn more about regenerative medicine and interventional orthopedics as well as to further develop his skills in fluoroscopic guided procedures, diagnostic ultrasound and interventional ultrasound.
He has been involved in research and development of the regenerative procedures and post procedural rehabilitation. He completed his fellowship in 2014 and was excited to stay on as a staff physician. Additionally he has interests in nutrition, supplements, and complementary and alternative medicine. He has written and published a nutrition guide; 21st Century Guide to Nutrition and Health. Dr. Pitts believes in taking a holistic approach to patient care. He is excited to continue to learn and develop his career around regenerative medicine. Dr. Pitts is board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. In his spare time he enjoys all outdoor activities, sports, running, hiking, lifting weights, Crossfit, biking, and traveling with his wife.

Dr Pitts is 100% about both patient care and improving quality of life for his patients. I had both PRP in my back and Stem Cell in both my knees. While my back went to near zero pain after my procedure, my knees were a little stubborn. Dr. Pitts never made me feel bad about discussing my progress. Even though it wasn’t perfect. He had ideas and seemed determined for us both to reach our goal of decreasing pain and increasing functionality of my knees. He has extremely good bedside manner. Confident yet not acting all knowing. And reachable when you have questions or concerns. You have a choice of doctor when you attend this clinic and I highly recommend requesting Dr Pitts.
AMAZING! I have had the unique experience of having Stem Cell Therapy done on both knees at by two different unrelated clinics. My first was done in Denver, and everything beyond the initial consultation was a terrible, painful experience. It was so bad that a year later when my other knee started to have problems, I couldn’t make myself go back. Even though I had seen improvement from doing the stem cell therapy, I just didn’t think I could go through it again. I decided that I could at least “fool myself” that it wouldn’t be as bad the next time if I went somewhere else, so I call Centeno-Schultz Clinic. EVERYTHING was WORLDS DIFFERENT! Dr Pitts was AMAZING! Literally every time he’d do a procedure I’d end up saying “Wait that was it? But there was no pain??” He’d just laugh. The bonus is his great sense of humor and he doesn’t even charge extra for the jokes. I 💯 percent recommend him!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Through all the phases leading to, during and after the stem cell procedures on my cervical spine and right shoulder were professional, based on kind and competent clinic staff and a physician provider, Dr. Pitts, that used his superior knowledge and skill to lead to an excellent outcome. The follow-up after the procedures was well outlined and has led to a positive outcome including better functioning and pain reduction. The medical team's research and scientific basis for the stem cell procedure was the primary reason for choosing this physician group. This was a great choice for me and for my husband.
Dr Pitts demonstrates the height of professionalism and depth of knowledge treating my shoulder. While my visit was for my shoulder Dr. Pitts asked if I’d been in a car accident. I had some 15 years prior. He spent the time to inquire about the causes of my discomfort vs treatment I received (or rather, did not receive) previously. His recommended course of treatment was not limited to my shoulder but as well included my neck.
Dr. Pitts is genuinely likable, focused, responsive and most certainly one of the most intelligent and conversant medical authorities I’ve met. I am fortunate to have my stem cell treatment from this exceptional physician and am enjoying having full use of my arm again!
