Our History

CentraCare – Midsota Plastic Surgery was founded in 1983 by Drs. Jim Smith and Paul Heath, both Mayo-trained plastic surgeons, who realized that Central Minnesota needed plastic surgery services. They wrote their first business plan on a restaurant placemat, created the name “Midsota” to evoke an image of the middle of Minnesota and then set about making their vision a reality. Dr. Paul Schultz joined them several years later, and one of his special interests was to provide plastic surgery services to the indigenous people of Guatemala.

The Midsota Surgery Center opened in 1998 as an outpatient surgery center for plastic surgery. On January 1, 2017, Midsota Plastic Surgery joined CentraCare. The partnership ensures Central Minnesota has strong plastic surgery services for years to come.
