Mr Dennis Edwards

Consultant Knee Surgeon

Mr. Dennis Edwards
Mr Dennis Edwards

Mr Edwards qualified in 1983 and undertook his orthopaedic training in Sheffield and in Cambridge. He undertook a sports surgery Fellowship in Adelaide, Australia prior to taking up my Consultant post at Addenbrooke's University Teaching Hospital in 1994. His Fellowship focused on knee surgery and reconstruction in the professional athlete.
Mr Edwards’ specialities are knee and sports surgery in particular but he sees and manages a wide range of adult and paediatric lower limb conditions. He has developed a specialised practice in Cambridge dealing with soft tissue injuries and degenerative conditions of the knee, as well as hip and ankle joints.

He has a particular interest in arthroscopic surgery and this includes meniscal injuries, chondral defects and ligamentous reconstructions in addition to meniscal repair, regeneration and transplantation.

Mr Edwards performs various chondral grafting techniques and re-alignment procedures including patella stabilisations and osteotomies for degenerative conditions.

He does a vast number of primary knee replacements including complex cases referred from around the country. He prefers to use a mobile bearing knee replacement as he believes this gives a better result than the standard replacements. He also does a number of personalised knee replacements where the procedure is tailor-made to an individual’s knee.

As a part his regular practice he runs a seasonal ski clinic and looks after a number of rugby, football, hockey, netball, athletic teams and sports players.
