Facilities Fergus Falls Main Clinic


Lake Region Healthcare (LRH) welcomed Dr. Lucas Holkup, General Surgeon, to our medical staff in October of 2021.

Dr. Holkup received his medical degree and surgical education at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences in Grand Forks and holds an undergraduate degree in Chemistry with a minor in Biology from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN.

He is a member of the American College of Surgeons and served as President of the UND Chapter of American College of Surgeons Council.

Dr. Holkup is a native of Wahpeton, ND and said he chose to join Lake Region Healthcare because he felt very welcomed here from the very first visit and he knew that a small community close to his hometown was the kind of place he wanted to serve. “I just checks off all the boxes as to what I was looking for in a career,” he said.

He performs a broad range of general surgical services including inpatient & outpatient general, laparoscopic and emergency surgeries for appendix, colon/rectal, gallbladder, hemorrhoid, hernia, trauma, breast, chemotherapy port, trauma, and more. Plus minor office procedures such as cyst and lipoma removal.

His hobbies include cooking, travel, interdisciplinary education, and he is the Co-founder & Assistant Coach of Wahpeton Class AA Amateur Baseball. He and his wife also enjoy spending time with family and friends in the area.
