Dr. Thomas found a passion for orthopedics through his life long obsession with sports. Raised surfing on the beaches of Southern California, Dr. Thomas attended UCSD where he played water polo, and through swimming became an NCAA All American. Dr. Thomas is a certified Sports Medicine Specialist, and works hard to keep everyone playing hard a little longer. He specializes in sports injury prevention, minimally invasive surgery and to date is one of a select few orthopedic surgeons performing cartilage replacement. When BCO was created he joined forces with Dr. Mealer to create his dream of affordable healthcare for his community. When he’s not in the operating room, you can find Dr. Thomas pursuing his passion of surfing.
