    What I Do
    As an endocrine surgeon, I use my technical abilities to affect immediate and measurable change in a patient’s life. My goal is to provide patients with a baseline level of medical knowledge regarding their conditions so they can conceptualize their problems and take an active role in the decision-making process. My special clinical interests are benign and malignant disorders of the thyroid gland, cervical lymph node metastases from thyroid cancer, hyperparathyroidism, hypercalcemia and benign and malignant disorders of the adrenal glands.

    Why I Love My Work
    I was drawn to endocrine surgery because the operations are delicate, the neck has great anatomy and I get to manage a wide range of complex medical conditions related to the endocrine system. I also have the privilege of being able to help people get through some of the most difficult and scary times of their lives.

    Getting to Know Me
    I am the medical director of surgery at CentraCare – Monticello and an officer in the United States Army Reserve. I maintain a busy general surgery practice, but I go on medical mission trips as often as I can. Recently, I went on a medical mission to help remove large endemic goiters in Migori, Kenya.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

CentraCare care givers have been working around the clock for more than 20 months to care for you, your families and friends during COVID. We are committed to caring for every Minnesotan who needs us, and nothing will prevent us from doing so – even during these never-seen-before times.

The challenge of providing this level of care is that our hospital beds are often full. ERs in all of our hospitals are packed. And our clinical teams are exhausted. Early in the pandemic, our community stepped up in amazing ways to help us. We ask that you again join us in fighting this pandemic together.

How can you help?

  • Please get your COVID vaccines and booster shots. They are proven safe and effective in reducing COVID illness, keeping people out of the hospital, and preventing death.
  • If your situation is not an emergency, please use other care options, including:
  • If this is a medical emergency, call 9-1-1, or visit the ER.

Together, we can do this. Thank you for your support.

Ken Holmen, MD
President and CEO
