Mitchell Oetken

Mitchell Oetken, D.O.
Orthopaedic Surgery
5th Year

Dr. Mitchell Oetken is from the Midwest - growing up mostly outside St. Louis and Indianapolis. He received his undergraduate degree in biology at Northland College in Ashland, WI. While at Northland, he played college basketball for four years. Soon after, Dr. Oetken began pursuing a doctorate of chiropractic in St. Louis, MO for a year and a half when he made the decision to go to osteopathic medical school at Lincoln Memorial University-DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine in Harrogate, TN. Having passion for the musculoskeletal system and sports, it was only natural for him to pursue a career in orthopaedic surgery. Interests within orthopaedics include sports, spine and trauma. Other interests include spending free time with his lovely wife of two years, Ashley Oetken, a high school teacher, as well as working out, playing basketball, engaging in various outdoor activities, attending concerts, festivals and sporting events.
