David J. Rau, MD

About Dr. Rau

Dr. David J. Rau is a General Surgeon at Terrebonne General Health System and Bayou Surgical Specialists in Houma, Louisiana. 

Dr. Rau gained vast experience in trauma, in addition to general surgical training during his residency. He was also accepted into a six-month vascular research program. His training was completed in 1989 after serving as chief resident in surgery and receiving outstanding resident of the year 4 out of his 5 years in training.

He returned to Terrebonne Parish in 1989 and happily joined his brother, Dr. Fritz Rau, and his partner, Dr. Philip Cenac, in their surgical practice. Working with a surgical pioneer such as Dr. Phillip Cenac was especially rewarding and left a permanent mark on how he practices medicine.

Dr. Rau spends his spare time cooking for the family and, when possible, for various groups.
