CULLMAN, Ala.­ ­­­- Andrews Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Center will open its newest clinic Jan. 6, 2020 in Cullman. It is located at 1301-A Bridge Creek Drive NE.

Andrews Sports Medicine is occupying space alongside ATI Physical Therapy in the new 6,000+ square-foot building constructed by CHJ Properties, LLC and local developers, Dr. Clancy Johnson and Randy Johnson.

We are thrilled to be opening a Cullman clinic to better serve Cullman, Blount, Morgan and Marshall Counties and surrounding areas,” said Lisa Warren, CEO of Andrews Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Center. “The clinic will be staffed by the two most recent doctors to join our practice – Dr. Monte Ketchum and Dr. Marcus A. Rothermich. Both doctors received their fellowship training at Andrews Sports Medicine and officially joined our practice this past October.”  

Monte Ketchum, DO is a non-surgical sports medicine and orthopaedic physician. He treats all types of orthopaedic issues, including sports-related and non-sports-related injuries and osteoarthritis in joints. Ketchum performs various ultrasound-guided injections, including viscosupplementation for osteoarthritis of joints and platelet-rich plasma therapy for tendon and ligament injuries and arthritic conditions.

“I’m thankful for the opening of Andrews Sports Medicine’s Cullman location. My wife, Ashley Ketchum, is a pediatrician at Internal Medicine and Pediatrics of Cullman. We recently settled into our new Cullman home this past summer. Ashley and I are both excited to be a part of this great community and eager to serve patients in our new hometown,” said Ketchum.

Marcus A. Rothermich, MD is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon. He has extensive training in both general orthopaedic surgery and complex sports medicine techniques. Dr. Rothermich has a particular interest in elbow reconstruction in overhead athletes, rotator cuff repairs, complex knee surgery and total joint replacement. He is excited to return to Alabama after working in private practice in Florida, where he served as a consultant to the New York Mets and as the team doctor for their local minor league affiliate.

“During the last few months, I’ve had the opportunity to meet a lot of great folks from Cullman County. Everyone has been very welcoming and seem grateful that Andrews Sports Medicine is opening a local clinic. I look forward to working alongside Dr. Ketchum to invest in this community. Monte and I can’t wait to get up there and help patients of all ages get back in the game,” said Rothermich.
