Dr. Rein Adamson

Dr. Rein Adamson has been a practising surgeon for nearly 40 years and has worked in Estonia’s largest public and private hospitals. Today, Dr. Adamson is one of Estonia’s leading bariatric surgeons and one of the most experienced body contouring surgeons.

He manages The Health Clinic’s Bariatric Surgery Department and performs a variety of aesthetic surgeries (abdominoplasty, liposuction, thigh lift, etc.) on a daily basis. He has worked at The Health Clinic since it was established and is happy that he can work here with his son Dr. Martin Adamson.

In 2004, Dr. Rein Adamson organised the first bariatric surgery in Estonia, which involved an Estonian being fitted with a gastric band at Mustamäe Hospital. At the time, the operating surgeon was a colleague from Finland who was assisted by Dr. Adamson. To date, Dr. Adamson has personally performed more than 1,000 bariatric surgeries and is the only bariatric surgeon in Estonia who regularly performs all of the six main types of bariatric surgeries.

Dr. Adamson regularly attends training events and seminars in Europe and the United States to expand his knowledge in the fields of weight-loss surgery and aesthetic medicine.
