Professional profile

Mr Donald Adam qualified from the University of Edinburgh in 1990 and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 1995. He undertook a period of research examining blood coagulation in aortic aneurysm repair for which he was awarded a higher degree by the University of Edinburgh.

He was appointed as Senior Lecturer in Vascular Surgery at the University of Birmingham and Consultant Vascular and Endovascular Surgeon at Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust in February 2004.

He has a specialist interest in the management of aortic aneurysms and aorto-iliac occlusive disease and is a European mentor for fenestrated and branched stent-grafting for complex aortic aneurysms. He has published over 100 peer reviewed papers.
