Dr. Thomas' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Thomas "Putting things back together and making them work drives Dr. Peter Thomas and his love for orthopaedics. As a hand surgeon with a fondness for fixing things, the most rewarding part of his job is restoring hand and upper extremity function in his patients. After earning a BA in Biology from Johns Hopkins University and a Masters in Applied Molecular Biology from the University of Maryland, Dr. Thomas received his medical degree from the Pennsylvania State University School of Medicine. He went on to an orthopaedic surgery residency at Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore, where he also completed a fellowship in hand surgery at the hospital's Curtis National Hand Center. His training includes visiting fellow in the Medical Device Fellowship Program at the Food and Drug Administration's Center for Devices and Radiologic Health. Dr. Thomas is the 2012 recipient of the inaugural fellow research award at the Curtis National Hand Center. In 2010, he received the Roger H. Michael Award for Excellence in Orthopaedic Research from Johnson & Johnson. During his residency and fellowship, he participated in two medical missions to La Romana in the Dominican Republic, where he performed hand surgery on local residents. His special orthopaedic interests include elbow and wrist arthroscopy, endoscopic carpal tunnel release, and Xiaflex® treatment for Dupuytren's contracture."
