B. Thomas Mazahery, MD
Dr. Thomas Mazahery grew up in Northern Virginia and wanted to return to the area after his Fellowship to begin his orthopaedic practice. Dr. Mazahery graduated with a BA in Biology from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia, and earned his medical degree from the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond. He then completed a general surgery internship and an orthopaedic surgery residency at Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois. Additionally, Dr. Mazahery completed a spine fellowship with the renowned surgeon Dr. Henry Bohlman at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.
As a spine specialist, Dr. Mazahery enjoys helping his patients return to normal function and resume their active lifestyles. He is especially fascinated by degenerative spine conditions, cervical spine pathology, and research related to improving spine surgery and technology. Having participated in extensive training for cervical spine conditions, Dr. Mazahery’s special interests also include motion sparing technology, minimally invasive techniques, kyphoplasty, microsurgery, and the operative and non-operative care of the entire spine.
Active in many professional leadership roles, Dr. Mazahery has been the recipient of several research grants and has presented his research at national and international meetings. He is presently a participant in the AOA Emerging Leaders Program, a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the North American Spine Society.
In his leisure time, Dr. Mazahery enjoys running. To date, he has completed two marathons. Dr. Mazahery is fluent in both English and his native tongue of Farsi.
I say this without having had surgery prior to meeting Dr Mazahery. After he diagnosed my problem, I went for a second and third opinion. I was told by one of those surgeons that I would be in good hands with Dr. Mazahery. He performed the cervical discectomy and when I woke up, the excruciating pain I had suffered with for several months was gone. I feel fully recovered after 8 months. I was somewhat nervous, but Dr. Mazahery put me at ease. I trust him fully and I'd recommend him to anyone needing back or neck surgery.
He’s terrific. I have had 3 different surgeries with him. Each time he has solved the problem. The whole staff is great and they always remember who I am. He has helped me even in the middle of the night when I was initially having problems and has given me his cell phone number when he’s gone on vacation. He has continued to do great service for me over the past 3 years.
