    Biography

    What I Do
    After a rotation in plastic and reconstructive surgery during my physician assistant training, I knew I wanted to work in this field. I especially appreciated the reconstructive side of the specialty and quickly discovered that plastic surgeons do much more than I could have imagined. Working from head to toe, I recognized the variety and depth of the specialty and what could be done to help people. In addition, I enjoy the cosmetic aspect of the field, helping to improve patients' self-image and confidence.

    My main goal as a physician assistant is to make sure that my patients are receiving the best possible care. Through a collaborative approach, I listen to the concerns of patients and then work with them to determine the best plan to obtain the most beneficial outcome.

    Why I Love My Work
    The best part about practicing medicine is developing relationships with patients, understanding how I can be of help to them, and watching my care have a beneficial and positive impact on their lives, especially within the realm of plastic and reconstructive surgery, where procedures can be life-altering.

    Getting to Know Me
    Originally from Ohio, I knew exactly what kind of practice I wanted to join after completing my physician assistant training. I found it in Central Minnesota with Midsota Plastic Surgery! I like that Midsota is a broad practice, and I have the opportunity to work with a wide variety of patients and conditions. I feel grateful to be working on a team with highly skilled and respected providers, as well as support staff who always go above and beyond in putting patients first.

    Outside of work, I like to play soccer, do yoga, hike and explore the outdoors and experiment with new recipes.

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
