About me

Adam trained in Liverpool as a post-graduate having completed initially a BSc in Pharmacology. As part of his studies he spent a year working with the pharmaceutical firm Pfizer. Adam thereafter pursued his surgical training throughout the Yorkshire region training in General Surgery. He completed an MD focussed on using oncolytic viruses to treat metastatic cancers and now works as an Emergency General Surgeon in Leeds Teaching Hospitals. He has published widely in a number of areas including high impact journals and a number of book chapters.

His clinical focus is on the acute management of biliary (gallbladder) pathology, hernias and all major acute and emergency abdominal surgical presentations. An area less developed to date in emergency surgery, he is an advanced laparoscopic surgeon committed to managing emergency patients with keyhole techniques and managing patients in an ambulatory setting where possible.

Adam has additional sub speciality interests in the surgical management of Hidradenitis Supparitiva and has collaborated closely with his dermatology colleagues to build a bespoke and novel pathway for this difficult and often undervalued disease area.

He is focussed on the delivery of sustainable and green options in surgery. As such he led a Leeds based team to victory in a national competition co-hosted by the Centre for Sustainable Health and Royal College of Surgeons (Eng) looking at the delivery of net-zero laparoscopic surgery and is now considered an expert in this field bringing his knowledge to the delivery of surgical techniques across the spectrum of presentations. He works closely with NHSE and other partners in this area.

Adam has a number of leadership and roles including being a Royal College of Surgeons College Tutor and Sustainability Champion. He work as chair of the Workforce EGS Sub-commitee for Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland and following a long period on the Association of Surgeons in Training Executive Committee he was appointed as the Finance Director and charitable trustee. He is passionate about training and changing cultures to flatten hierarchy.

He is strongly family focussed and loves travel, good food and spending time with his wife and 2 children creating memories and adventures.
