John Pitts, M.D.

Interventional Orthobiologics Foundations Instructor

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.

Justin D.

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. Sincerely, J Daigle
