Fellowship Year: 2004
A native of Atlanta, Dr. Carroll Jones joined OrthoCarolina (Charlotte, NC) in 2004 as a specialist in foot and ankle surgery. He received a bachelor’s degree in biology with highest honors from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. His training continued at the Medical College of Georgia, where his passion for surgery and anatomy inspired him to pursue a career in orthopedics. He completed his orthopedic residency at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Following residency, Dr. Jones completed a one year fellowship in foot and ankle surgery with one of the world’s top specialist, Michael Coughlin, M.D., in Boise, ID.
Dr. Jones is a partner of the nationally recognized O.L. Miller Foot and Ankle Institute in Charlotte, NC and has become an expert in new techniques for the management of complex lower extremity deformities. He chairs and teaches two courses each year on the Ilizarov technique (external fixation) for these difficult cases. He also serves as faculty for residency training (Carolinas Medical Center) and the foot and ankle fellowship in Charlotte.
Under the direction of Michael Coughlin MD, Dr. Jones co-authored over ten articles, prepared during his fellowship year in Boise. Over the last 5 years, he has written multiple articles, book chapters, and technique guides. He serves on the faculty of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgery’s learning center in Rosemont, Illinois. He has been co-chair for the North Carolina Orthopedic Association’s annual meeting the last 2 years and is consistently involved with more regional and national meetings.
When he is away from work, Dr. Jones enjoys mountain biking, water skiing, golf, and spending time with his family. In addition to the invaluable training and expertise he received in his year with Dr. Coughlin, he and his wife Kendall are eternally grateful to the Boise community that served as their home for one year!
