About Thomas L. Beaumont, MD, PhD

Thomas Beaumont, MD, PhD, is a neurosurgeon who specializes in skull base and minimally invasive cranial surgery. He performs both open microsurgery and endoscopic approaches for brain, skull base and pituitary tumors where he tailors the surgical approach to provide maximally effective yet minimally invasive neurosurgical care. Dr. Beaumont has a passion for the treatment of meningiomas, pituitary tumors, craniopharyngiomas and clival chordomas, and is an expert in the endoscopic endonasal approach (EEA). Additionally, he treats cavernous malformations, cranial nerve compression syndromes and craniocervical junction disease.

Also trained as a scientist, Dr. Beaumont has extensive research experience in genomics and epigenetics and has received funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Dr. Beaumont currently studies the role of chromatin remodeling in tumorigenesis with the goal of developing novel targeted therapeutics for aggressive skull base tumors. He also conducts clinical outcomes studies and has developed risk prediction models for rare clinical diseases.

As an assistant professor in the Department of Surgery, Dr. Beaumont instructs medical students, residents and fellows at UC San Diego School of Medicine. He is widely involved in scholarly activities and is an active reviewer for several neurosurgical journals and grant agencies.

Dr. Beaumont completed a fellowship in skull base and minimally invasive cranial surgery at The Ohio State University. He completed a residency in neurological surgery at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. Dr. Beaumont earned both his medical and doctoral degrees in a combined program at Wayne State University School of Medicine.

He is a member of many professional organizations, including the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, the North American Skull Base Society and the Society for Neuro-Oncology.

Outside of work, Dr. Beaumont enjoys cycling, sailing, tennis, the mountains and spending time with his family.
