Women of Distinction 2019: Dr. Tracy McCall

It is Milwaukee Magazine’s pleasure to introduce this special section featuring female business owners, financial and spiritual leaders, health care professionals, entrepreneurs, philanthropists and all-around glass-ceiling breakers!

Passionate about providing a broad-based plastic surgery practice (both reconstructive and cosmetic procedures), Dr. Tracy McCall was drawn to Wisconsin by an old friend who had already fallen in love with the state. She supports the “Stop the Bleed” program, which teaches bystanders to help in a bleeding emergency.

She saw an injury pattern involving table saws and worked with the Waukesha County Medical Society to award grants to area high schools to put a safer kind of saw in their wood shops. Joining other surgeons from other countries, McCall has provided care to disadvantaged patients in the developing world. She is happy to call Wisconsin home.

“I can’t solve all the world’s problems, but I can tidy my little corner.” – Dr. Tracy McCall Plastic Surgeon, Lake Country Plastic and Hand Surgery
