In Memory of Eric Thomas

The UNM Department of Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation and Sandia Orthopaedic Alumni Society annually host the Eric Thomas Memorial Golf Tournament at the University of New Mexico Championship Golf Course. This fundraising event benefits the UNM Orthopaedic Residency Program. It honors the memory of Dr. Eric Thomas, Class of 2004, who lost his battle with leukemia in March of 2008.

Eric was regarded as an accomplished orthopaedic spine surgeon who helped pioneer an innovative surgical technique (X-LIF) used today. He was the first student elected to the UNM Board of Regents in 1995 and a dedicated UNM Lobo basketball player (1990-95). Eric was a father to one and a friend to many. We proudly host this tournament to celebrate his life and legacy.
