The Restor Metabolix Asheville Team
Dr. Adam M. Starr
Meet Dr. Starr
Dr. Adam M. Starr is absolutely thrilled to be practicing as an orthopedic hand surgeon for the Community of Asheville after more than a decade of practicing orthopedic surgery and 25 years serving our country. He graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy and Tulane University School of Medicine, earning the honor of serving as Chief Resident during his Orthopedic Surgery Residency at UMDNJ- Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. He then completed an orthopedic trauma fellowship at Addenbrookes hospital in Cambridge, England, followed by a hand surgery fellowship at Brown University.
Dr. Starr served as an Orthopedic Hand surgeon at the San Antonio Military Medical Center and at Asheville Orthopedic Associates before joining the staff at Carolina Hand & Sports Medicine in October of 2021. He currently serves as the Chief of Hand Surgery at Mission Hospital, is a member of the Society of Military Orthopedic Surgeons, a Diplomate in the American Board of Orthopedic Surgeons, a Fellow in the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, and a member of the American Society for Surgery of the hand.
Over the past two years, Dr. Starr has developed a keen interest in diabetic patients. Providence led him to a novel treatment for patients with diabetes – the use of insulin as a hormone instead of as a drug. He has spent the past year and a half learning about this treatment and training in its administration; he is excited to have recently opened the first Restor Metabolix clinic in North Carolina. He now serves on the medical board of both Restor Metabolix and its parent company, Well Cell Global.
When not working, Dr. Starr enjoys spending time with his wife and four children. Together they travel, hike, ski, and generally enjoy the many outdoor activities that Asheville has to offer.
