Dr. Wilke specializes in facelifts, tummy tucks and cosmetic breast surgery, as well as minimally-invasive procedures. He has been in practice at Edina Plastic Surgery since 1997, and has been named as a Top Doctor by Minneapolis/St. Paul Magazine multiple times. He has also been honored as one of the Top Doctors for Women by Minnesota Monthly Magazine for a number of years. Dr. Wilke was even noted as one of the Top 100 People to Know by Twin Cities Business Magazine. This accolade was a credit to his expertise in facial rejuvenation, as he has helped many women and men in the Twin Cities business community keep their outward appearance in line with their inner vitality. He has been a go-to surgeon for those wanting results that look natural, healthy and rejuvenated without telltale signs of surgery.
Dr. Wilke is also an associate clinical professor at the University of Minnesota, and regularly volunteers for surgical mission trips to third world countries to provide reconstructive surgery to children with cleft lips and victims of burn injuries.
Known for his very compassionate manner, Dr. Wilke states, “It’s a privilege to be able to help people realize their goals. Whether it’s repairing a birth defect, an abdomen that’s been damaged from pregnancies, or reversing effects of the aging process, I feel honored to be able to make a difference in a person’s life.” Dr. Wilke, who stands out for his meticulous attention to detail, comments, “I really go into each and every surgery with the feeling that this is the most important surgery I have ever done, because for that patient, it absolutely is!”
Dr. Wilke and his wife, Julie, have two children and his favorite activity in his free time is spending time with his family.
