Dr. Loren Faaborg grew up in east central Nebraska in a town of 1500 people. He was the son of a barber father and a journalist mother, and learned early the meaning of hard work. He spent his formative years in the Fullerton, Nebraska, school system, and when not in school, he worked on a farm driving tractors and cattle.
He was an outstanding athlete in high school and at the conclusion of his senior year, was named athlete of the year. After high school, he attended the University of Nebraska and graduated in 1970 with a B.S. in agricultural science. While in college, he was an active member of Farm House fraternity where he served as vice president. He was also selected, after a vigorous and competitive tryout, to be a member of the University of Nebraska Yell Squad. He was named Yell King and led the Yell Squad for three years cheering for the Nebraska Cornhuskers. He was also chosen to be a member of the University of Nebraska chancellor’s prestigious Innocents Society, a senior men’s honorary.
After graduating from college, he attended the University of Nebraska Medical Center and graduated in 1975. He was then awarded an OB-GYN residency at the University of Nebraska Medical Center and finished in 1978. While he was in residency training, he published in peer-reviewed journals and realized that one of the most satisfying aspects of the specialty was improving the quality of life for women by providing cutting edge surgical techniques, assisting in bringing new life into their world and providing for their general gynecologic needs.
Following residency, he began an active duty obligation in the U.S. Air Force stationed at Dover, Delaware. Upon completion of his active duty service, he and a close friend opened an OB-GYN practice in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, where he spent the next 25 years providing exemplary service to his patients and was very active in the community in numerous civic organizations. While in western Nebraska, he developed and fine-tuned his surgical skills in advanced laparoscopic techniques, difficult pelvic surgeries, transvaginal reconstruction, and urinary incontinence procedures. He continues to practice general gynecology and surgery in the west valley of Phoenix.
When he is not at the clinic or the hospital, he enjoys playing golf, tasting wines, grilling fine Nebraska beef, cheering on the Nebraska Cornhuskers, keeping up-to-date on all of his grandchildren and spending time with his wife, Vicki.
