(Lindsay, ON) – Ross Memorial Hospital is pleased to welcome Dr. Simon Adams as a new, full-time general surgeon.

Dr. Adams, originally from Stratford-upon-Avon, England (birthplace of William Shakespeare), officially started at Ross Memorial Hospital in September 2023.

Dr. Adams earned his Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery at the University of Leicester in 2000. He spent his first 10-plus years practicing medicine in the United Kingdom before arriving to Canada for the University of Saskatchewan’s General Surgery Residency Program, which he completed from 2013 to 2019. He has served as a locum general surgeon in Saskatchewan, Alberta, the Yukon, Northwest Territories, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island. In 2021, Dr. Adams completed a one-year fellowship in abdominal wall reconstruction.     

As a general surgeon at Ross Memorial, Dr. Adams will be performing endoscopies and surgeries to address hernias, gall bladders, bowel cancers, among others.

Referrals to Dr. Adams must be made through a primary care provider or Emergency Department physician. His office can be reached at (705)320-9916 or via fax at (705)320-8856.

When he’s not caring for patients, Dr. Adams enjoys watching and playing sports, spending time with his family, and walking his dog.


“I am excited to join the team at Ross Memorial Hospital and start seeing patients. Having spent time treating patients and expanding my skillset throughout Canada, I’ve come to realize how much I enjoy the small town feel. I look forward to learning more about the Kawartha Lakes and serving this tightknit community.”
