Meet the Experts

Jeffrey Thomas, MD, FAANS, FACS


Washington Hospital

Dr. Thomas is one of fewer than 120 board-certified and fellowship-trained neurosurgeons nationwide who perform both microneurosurgical and neurointerventional techniques for complex cerebrovascular brain lesions (aneurysms, AVM, and stroke), and who employ both techniques on a regular basis. Practicing at Washington Hospital, Dr. Thomas has access to one of the most sophisticated surgical facilities available today to treat both aneurysm and stroke.

Dr. Thomas obtained his medical degree at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York. He did his medical internship at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center at New York Presbyterian Hospital – Cornell. His residency took place at Los Angeles County/University of Southern California Medical Center. Dr. Thomas did his fellowship training at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and additional fellowship training at the Cardiovascular Research Center of the Massachusetts General Hospital. He is board certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgery. In addition to English, he also speaks French and Spanish.

The philosophy of care that guides Dr. Thomas’ practice is about treating his patients in a very personal and profound manner that forms very unique relationships with them and their families. He believes that treating patients goes beyond performing surgical or technical procedures, as they are human beings who should always be treated like family or longtime friends.
