Dr David Edis (MBBS, FRACS [Ortho], FAOA and AFRACMA) is an orthopaedic and spine surgeon who moved back to Melbourne more than a year ago to open his rooms in Frankston and Mornington. After studying at the University of Melbourne and training at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, Dr Edis pursued further training in spine surgery in New Zealand.
His passion for improving patient care included developing minimally invasive spinal surgery techniques for eight years in conjunction with surgeons in Australia and overseas. He is currently working with a pain management and multi-disciplinary team in Frankston to help solve complex pain issues. In addition to this, he spent five years developing allied health and pain management programs in regional Tasmania over his 10 years spent living in the beautiful island state.
With a special interest in the areas of adult spine surgery, hip and knee arthroplasty, knee arthroscopy and orthopaedic trauma, Dr Edis now also offers oblique lumbar fusion surgery, percutaneous screw fixation and deformity correction for adult scoliosis.
He believes in a multi-disciplinary approach to patient care and is passionate about working closely with primary carers, physiotherapists, pain specialists, clinical psychologists, occupational therapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, myotherapists and nurses to achieve evidence-based contemporary care for his patients with spinal conditions.
Dr Edis will also be holding a conference in the next six months in order to engage with local providers, share expertise with each other and ultimately collaborate with them. Any practitioners who are interested in participating are welcome to contact his rooms.
Dr Edis invites new referrals for any orthopaedic conditions. You can find Dr Edis at The Bays Hospital, Suite 15, Ground F, Main St, Mornington; and at his Frankston rooms at 93 Frankston-Flinders Rd, Frankston.
