Provider Bio down arrow

Dr. Darren P. Corteen, an orthopedic surgeon, specializes in sports medicine focusing on knee and shoulder injuries. He treats work-related injuries.


Dr. Corteen’s early interest in sports led him to pursue his specialty of sports medicine, a subspecialty of orthopedics. Although most of his patients are athletes, he also sees many people whose injuries are work-related.

“I treat knee and shoulder injuries primarily, and I have a special interest in cartilage injuries,” he said. He is one of the only orthopedic surgeons in the Marshfield Clinic Health System who performs arthroscopic surgery of the hip. These procedures are a consideration for a relatively small number of patients and can be complicated because they sometimes involve modifying the alignment of bones to change how the patient carries weight.

Dr. Corteen earned his medical degree from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine & Public Health in Madison. He completed an orthopedic surgery residency at Wayne State University Hospitals in Detroit, and a fellowship in sports medicine at the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics in Madison. He chose to come to Marshfield Clinic primarily because he and his wife are both natives of Wisconsin.
