Dr David Edis (MBBS, FRACS [Ortho], Grad Dip MA and AFRACMA) is an orthopaedic and spine surgeon who has been living and practising on the Mornington Peninsula for the past two years. 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. Dr Edis also spent five years developing allied health and pain management programs in regional Tasmania during his time living there.
Dr Edis has a special interest in adult spine surgery, hip and knee replacement, knee arthroscopy and orthopaedic trauma. He has extensive experience in oblique lumbar fusion surgery, percutaneous screw fixation and deformity correction for adult scoliosis, and he offers robotic-assisted placement of spinal implants as well as CT navigation, using these technologies to make surgery safer for patients.
Believing in a multi-disciplinary approach to patient care, Dr Edis is passionate about working closely with primary carers, physiotherapists, pain specialists, clinical psychologists, occupational therapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, myotherapists, exercise physiologists and nurses to achieve evidence-based contemporary care for his patients with spinal problems.
Dr Edis invites new referrals for any orthopaedic conditions, including fractures in children. You can find him at The Bays Hospital, Suite 15, Ground F, Main St, Mornington; and at his Frankston rooms at 93 Frankston-Flinders Rd, Frankston.
