About / Overview

Jesse Doty, MD, is a Tennessee native who grew up in Rogersville where he graduated from Cherokee High School in 1999. From there he attended Carson-Newman University where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology, graduating magna cum laude in 2003.

He then attended four years of medical school at The University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis where he graduated in 2007 with honors, including election into the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.

He spent the next five years completing his surgical internship and orthopaedic surgery residency at The University of Tennessee College of Medicine Chattanooga, graduating in 2012. In 2013, he completed a one-year foot and ankle surgical fellowship under the direction of renowned surgeon Dr. Michael Coughlin at the Saint Alphonsus Foot and Ankle Clinic in Boise, Idaho. His experience during this fellowship year also included participation in surgery with Dr. Coughlin's partners, Chris Hirose MD and Travis Kemp MD. In the summer of 2013, after the completion of his fellowship, he spent time in Los Angeles, California with Richard Ferkel, M.D. to gain additional insight into foot and ankle sports injuries and small joint arthroscopy. 

His clinical interests include complex lower extremity deformities and the use of external fixation for gradual surgical correction. He has undergone training in the use of multiple external fixation systems including the Taylor Spatial Frame, and he participated in the 1st annual Taylor Spatial Frame Global Masters Forum in London, UK. His surgical interests also include sports injuries, foot and ankle arthroscopy, lower extremity fractures, chronic foot and ankle deformities, and ankle replacement. He takes emergency calls and is experienced in the treatment of orthopaedic trauma. He has published multiple peer reviewed articles and chapters in the orthopaedic literature and has participated as teaching faculty at several courses.

He is very excited to be in Chattanooga, partnering with the faculty of the University of Tennessee College of Medicine. He strives to provide advanced and compassionate care to his patients, while contributing to the educational training of the next generation of orthopaedic surgeons. 

He enjoys spending time with his wife Cristin and their two children, Emerson and JT. Other than orthopaedic surgery, his interests include biking and snow skiing.
