Adam S Arthur | Semmes Murphey Neurologic and Spine Institute
Dr. Arthur grew up in a small college town in the Shenandoah Valley and was awarded a Virginia Scholarship to attend the University of Virginia. After college he joined the University of Virginia Department of Neurosurgery where he did research on aneurysms and cerebral vasospasm. He continued this research throughout medical school, obtaining his medical degree from the University of Virginia in 1998. He then did his internship and residency at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. While there he also completed a Masters in Public Health with a focus on clinical trials methodology, graduating Summa Cum Laude in 2002.
After finishing his residency in Neurosurgery he was recruited to Memphis where he joined the Semmes Murphey Clinic and the University of Tennessee Department of Neurosurgery. During his first two years in Memphis he completed a fellowship in Endovascular and Cerebrovascular Neurosurgery. He is one of a few neurosurgeons in the country to develop a busy practice in both open cerebrovascular surgery and endovascular neurosurgery. He has a strong interest in managing neurovascular disease in both healthy and very sick patients. He is actively engaged in several areas of research to improve the treatment of patients with cerebrovascular diseases, such as aneurysms and stroke.
He is married to Shannon Mitchell Arthur, and they live happily in Memphis with their 3 young children, 2 dogs, and 1 cat.
