Dr. Thomas' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Thomas "With strong roots in the Northland, Dr. Les Thomas graduated from William Jewel College in Liberty, MO, with a Bachelor's degree in chemistry. He earned his medical degree from Saint Louis University Medical School and went on to complete his internship and residency at the University of Illinois Hospital in Chicago, IL. After completing his residency, Dr. Thomas proudly served members of our armed forces as an orthopedic surgeon at Offutt Air Force Base near Omaha, Nebraska.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Thomas "Having performed over 10,000 surgical procedures on the extremities in the last 25 years, Dr. Thomas brings a wealth of experience to the treatment of problems including arthritis, the need for joint replacement, trauma, sports injuries, and overuse syndromes. He utilizes a conservative treatment philosophy, trying to optimize non-operative measures before resorting to surgery. In the operating room, he uses cutting edge technologies such as Rotating Platform knee arthroplasty - a technique that offers more natural function for patients undergoing knee replacement."
