He then went on to and graduated from Sheffield University Medical School and carried out his basic surgical training at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore, London, the Northwick Park Hospital, Harrow, and the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London.

Adam studied for his MSc in Surgical Sciences at University College London and then went on to Higher Surgical Training at Barts and the Royal London Hospital. He focused his registrar training towards becoming a spinal surgeon, spending two years on the spinal unit at Stanmore, London.

Following this, Adam spent another year completing an advanced spinal surgery fellowship, which involved a thoroughly comprehensive clinical exposure to paediatric and adult spinal disorders and offered further opportunities for scientific and clinical research projects.
