    He is one of the best doctors I have ever been seen by. He also did the surgery , everything went well.

    I can say with the utmost sincerity that Dr Raju is the nicest most pleasant dr I have meet in my 51 years. He is genuine, thorough, professional and without a doubt made both me and my husband more comfortable with the prognosis of prostate cancer. I would recommend him to anyone!!! Truly a gem of a doctor and an individual.

    July 1, 2016 I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. 54 years old, overweight, 2 previous pulmonary embolism, A-FIB, high blood pressure. Baylor, MD Anderson and a local surgeon refused to operate. Dr Raju Thomas had no doubt. Within 4 weeks, I had successful surgery, 3 months later, no sign of cancer. He did get my attention and have lost weight and have started to take care of myself. Without Dr Thomas, I had no future. I am forever grateful to him.
    in Kenner, LA |
    I was diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma involving multiple tumors on both kidneys. In two separate operations, Dr. Raju Thomas and his team were able to successfully remove both cancerous kidneys and in the first surgery was able to salvage a non-cancerous section of my right kidney and to auto-transplant that section into my pelvic area. This surviving kidney tissue was enough to allow me to keep my renal function going and avoided my having to become a dialysis patient for life.

    When facing such a serious health situation, one wants to have the best possible medical care available. With Dr. Thomas and his team at Tulane, you not only get the best Urological care possible, but behind the science you get to meet a man that is humble and human, with an approach to each patient that is fundamentally caring and based on the reasons why one becomes a doctor, to take care of others. His leadership and selflessness is evident in all members of his team. All our gratitude.
