      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Adams says...

      Dr. Adams is a native of Alabama. After completing his undergraduate education at Mississippi State University and obtaining his medical degree at the University of Alabama School of Medicine, he entered the US Navy where he completed his internship in Surgery at Naval Medical Center, Portsmouth, VA and then served for several years as a general medical officer. After completing his naval service, he returned to his surgical training, finishing his residency at the University of Tennessee College of Medicine. Dr. Adams is board certified in general surgery, a fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS) and a member of multiple surgical societies including the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASBMS), the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) and the Southeastern Surgical Congress. He is individually credentialed as a Surgeon of Excellence in Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (SOEMBS) by the Surgical Review Corporation.

      Dr. Adams practiced for many years in Alabama concentrating in minimally invasive and bariatric surgery. When an opportunity arose to return to the Hampton Roads area, he and his family jumped at the chance, joining Bon Secours Surgical Specialists in 2008. He is very happily married for nearly 25 years with two grown sons. In his spare time, Dr. Adams enjoys bird hunting, fishing and watching baseball. 

      Dr. Adams has special interest in minimally invasive and bariatric surgery. He has over 12 years of experience in bariatric surgery focusing on the gastric bypass and the vertical sleeve gastrectomy. He has a strong interest in foregut surgery with focus on surgical and endoscopic managements of GERD and laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR). He currently serves as the medical director of the Surgical Weight Loss program at DePaul Medical Center, clinical council member for the Bon Secours Medical Group and president of the Medical Staff at DePaul Medical Center. He practices at DePaul Medical Center in Norfolk and at Maryview Medical Center in Portsmouth. He sees patients every week at offices in Norfolk, Virginia Beach and in Suffolk.
