About Dr. Adam Farkas


Dr. Farkas is the director of the Vascular Anomalies Clinic of Jerusalem at Shaare Zedek Medical Center (Israel), where he practices as a senior physician in the field of Vascular and Interventional Radiology (VIR). VIR is a specialty that deals with minimally invasive targeted treatments. VIR physicians use ultrasound, x-ray, and other imaging modalities to advance a catheter into the body, usually a vein or artery, to treat at the source of disease internally. They offer the most in-depth knowledge and least invasive treatments coupled with extensive diagnostic and clinical experience.

Dr. Farkas received his M.D. and graduated at the top of his class from Stony Brook University School of Medicine in New York. He then pursued several years of residency training in General and Vascular Surgery at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical Center in New Jersey. Dr. Farkas completed his residency training in Diagnostic Radiology as well as advanced sub-specialty fellowship in Vascular and Interventional Radiology at the world renowned University of California-San Francisco Medical Center. Dr. Farkas has a special interest in women’s interventions, venous diseases, and vascular malformations, for which he underwent additional sub-specialized training at Harvard Medical School — Children’s Hospital of Boston. He has since introduced some of these cutting-edge therapies to Shaare Zedek and the greater Jerusalem area (Israel).

Dr. Farkas recently made aliyah and now lives in Israel with his wife and five children, and has joined the faculty in Vascular and Interventional Radiology at the Shaare Zedek Medical Center. He is fluent in English and Hebrew, and speaks conversational Yiddish and Spanish.
