Dr. Mary C. Herte brings her Midwestern values to all of her endeavors. She was born, raised and educated in Milwaukee, the largest metropolitan city in Wisconsin. She graduated cum laude from Mount Mary College, Milwaukee, with a Bachelor of Science and went on to achieve her M.D. degree from the Medical School at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
Even in medical school, a love of the specialty of Plastic Surgery took hold of her. “I thought Plastic Surgery was ‘magic’ and I wanted very much to do magic!” She apprenticed with Dr. David Dibbell at the University and received confirmation that yes…she had the basic skills and talents to pursue that love of Plastic Surgery. She changed course and chose Surgery, an un-welcoming specialty for women at that time.
