Dr. Philip Jones

Associate Professor


Dr. Philip Jones provides anesthesia care at the University Hospital (London Health Sciences Centre) and St. Joseph's Hospital (including the Regional Mental Health Centre). He also supervises and trains medical students, anesthesia residents, and fellows. In addition, Dr. Jones works as an intensivist in the Cardiac Surgical Recovery Unit. Dr. Jones also currently serves as the Chair for the LHSC Drugs and Therapeutics Committee, a position which presents many research opportunities. 

At the University Hospital, the Department of Anesthesia and Perioperative Medicine provides services for the following surgical disciplines: cardiac surgery, general surgery, neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery, urology, and plastic surgery. Dr. Jones is an active clinical leader and participant in all of these areas. 


Dr. Jones is currently undertaking research with a focus on:

  • Airway devices

  • TEE (right heart function and tissue Doppler)

  • Outcomes following cardiac surgery (with particular attention to the role of anesthetic agents/interventions as a determinant of outcome)

His future interests include performing large multi-centre randomized clinical trials in anesthesia and cardiac critical care. 


The Department would like to recognize and congratulate Dr. Philip Jones for his completion of a Masters in Clinical Trials from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, of the University of London, London, England.

Dr. Jones graduated with distinction, receiving the University’s “150th Anniversary Achievement Award”, which takes in to account the final marks from all of the program courses, is awarded to the top student in the program. Congratulations Dr. Jones, on this momentous academic achievement (2011).
