Spinal and Orthopaedic Surgery in Victoria
Victorian Orthopaedic Spine Service provides cutting-edge spinal and orthopaedic care.
We have locations extending across the multicultural suburbs of south-east Melbourne and down Victoria’s beautiful Mornington Peninsula.
We serve a diverse range of clients, aiming to provide high-quality care that overcomes language or financial barriers.
Advanced Technology for Improved Patient Outcomes
Our orthopaedic spine surgeon, Dr David Edis, was one of the first in Australia to use CT navigation and robotic guidance when the technology was in its infancy.
As an early adopter of these techniques, he’s one of the few spine surgeons who can offer this expertise to patients.
Now, over 85% of his surgeries use this advanced technology, which aims to deliver higher screw accuracy rates leading to improved patient outcomes such as fewer revision surgeries.
Common Procedures We Offer
This list is not exhaustive and Dr Edis prides himself on providing a wide selection of procedures across orthopaedics. If you are not sure about what operation you may require then a consultation can clarify if your condition can be treated surgically and the best option. If Dr Edis believes your care can be best provided by another surgeon or technicians then he can refer you on to trusted colleagues.
Our Care Pathway
Our care pathway is carefully designed to ensure that you only progress to surgery if you really need it.
The exact pathway varies from patient to patient depending on your condition.
You might skip straight to surgery if that’s clearly the best option for you. Or you might try alternatives to surgery first and experience significant improvement in your symptoms.
