Although Jones was born in America and brought up in a family of medical doctors, he was trained as a surgeon in France by some of the leading physicians in the world, including Percivall Pott, one of the founders of the study of orthopedics. His doctoral thesis , On the Observation of Wounds, would later develop into this seminal surgical text and the very first treatise on surgery to be printed in North America. Jones was also integral in establishing the medical school that would later become Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons, where he was appointed as the very first professor of surgery in the Americas.
