MUSCAT: Oman’s leading plastic surgeon Dr Chona Thomas was featured in the Oman’s national newspaper, Oman Daily Observer in its Feature pages on July 13, 2014.

Dr Thomas was the first president of the Eastern Episcopal Churches and St Thomas Church in Oman (Ruwi Church, Muscat Mar Gregorios Maha Edavaka), which is a joint venture between the Indian Orthodox Church and the Marthoma Church, a unique ecumenical landmark in the history of Christian churches. He was thus the coordinator of the tripartite agreement of the Church Construction Committee.

Written by Liju Cherian, the feature profiles the Dr Thomas along with his views on the vast demand in the Sultanate for reconstructive surgeries in congenital anomalies such as cleft lips and palate, hypospadias, surgery for hand injuries and deformities. This is more so for cranio-facial surgery for craniofacial injuries involving Road Traffic Accidents (RTA) and other deformities. This is the view expressed by renowned plastic surgeon Dr Chona Thomas, and a pioneer in his field for following a non-synthetic approach to plastic surgery.

Shanta Thomas is his wife and they have two sons who are also doctors. Dr Tenny John Thomas, is an emergency physician in Boston with his wife, Sheena, a Certified Public Accountant and their daughter Lea. The youngest is Dr Tejjy Mathew Thomas, an orthodontist with his wife, Meera, an architect cum interior designer.

Dr Chona Thomas was honoured by Jaihind Television in 2011.
