Dr Adam Rennie specialises in vascular intervention involving the brain, head and neck, and spine in adults and children, and is one of only three doctors in the UK able to treat children with Vein of Galen Malformations.

He undertook postgraduate neuroradiological training at Oxford and was appointed Consultant Neuroradiologist at University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire in 2007. As a newly appointed consultant he set up a successful Interventional Neuroradiology practice.

In August 2011 he was appointed as Consultant Neuroradiologist at The National Hospital of Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London, with an Honorary post at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

He holds further honorary consultant contracts at Alder Hey NHS Trust Liverpool, North Bristol NHS Trust, Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, Oxford University Hospital NHS Trust, and St George’s NHS Trust London.

He provides two nationally commissioned services at Great Ormond Street Hospital: Vein of Galen Malformation treatment and stereotactic radiosurgery for paediatric arteriovenous malformations.

He is invited to lecture regularly on various topics involving Interventional Neuroradiology, with a specific interest in Paediatrics.

He is a reviewer for Neuroradiology, Interventional Neuroradiology and Clinical Radiology journals.

Dr Rennie is married, with three children, and resides in Berkshire.

Neurology is particularly interesting in that almost every single condition that affects the body often affects the brain or spine in some way, so we’ve got a whole cross section of disease processes.

The Sportsman

Dr Rennie’s escape from the life-or-death decisions he faces most days comes from sports, rowing in particular, winning gold in the 2006 Commonwealth Games in the lightweight quadruple sculls. More recently, he ran the 2016 London Marathon in a remarkable 2h 48m for the Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity – learn more in the video below.
