Dr. Charles Woodham is a board-certified general surgeon with clinical interests in hernia repairs, minimally invasive surgery, trauma and medical education.  He has served his country in the U.S. military and practiced medicine for many years across the country.

Dr. Woodham joined the United States Air Force Reserves in 2002 and went on to pursue his medical degree while also being in the service. He earned his Doctor of Medicine degree from the Saint Louis University School of Medicine, and then completed his general surgery internship and residency while on active duty at Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, MS. He went on to work as a staff general surgeon for the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Army with multiple medical units in the US, Europe and Asia.  He joins WakeMed most recently from Burlington Surgical Associates of Cone Health Medical Group in Burlington, NC.

Dr. Woodham believes that being a surgeon is as much about teaching as it is about having the best technical skills. He understands that every patient is also a student and deserves to know as much about their condition as possible in order to decide on the best course of action together.

During his military career, Dr. Woodham earned numerous honorable awards, including the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, the Air Force Outstanding Unit Award, Army Commendation Medal and the Air Force Meritorious Service Medal with one bronze oak leaf cluster. He also was awarded the "Best Consultant" award in 2018 from the Emergency Room staff in Burlington. 

He is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and is a member of the Associations of American Physicians & Surgeons. When not at work, Dr. Woodham enjoys spending time with his wife and children. They like to travel and learn he history of the places they visit together.
