After earning a bachelor’s degree from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Dr. Fahr obtained a medical degree from Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans. He completed a surgical internship at Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga, Tenn. and performed his surgical residency at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center College of Medicine, also in Chattanooga.

Dr. Fahr returned to Louisiana to complete fellowships in Trauma and Surgical Critical Care at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans. He is certified by the American Board of Surgery in both General Surgery and Surgical Critical Care.

North Oaks Shock Trauma Center was verified and designated a Level II Trauma Center by the American College of Surgeons and Louisiana Department of Health earlier this year. The Shock Trauma Center provides coordinated care and trauma surgeons in-house at all times to attend to victims suddenly stricken by serious traumatic injury. North Oaks is the only trauma center serving Region 9, which is comprised of Tangipahoa, Livingston, St. Helena, St. Tammany and Washington parishes.

In addition, North Oaks Shock Trauma Center is part of the Louisiana Emergency Response Network (LERN), an agency of state government created to develop and maintain a statewide system of care coordination for trauma patients.
