Prof. Edward T Davis
MB ChB MSc PGCME FRCS
(Trauma and Orthopaedics)
Professor Davis holds an honory professorship at the renowned Birmingham University Medical School. He is a recognised expert in the management of patients with hip and knee problems that require surgical replacement and is requested to lecture all around the world to other surgeons on the techniques he uses.
He is a recognised expert in the use and development of computer navigation, which improves the precision in which these operations can be performed. He is a self-confessed perfectionist, which has led him into the field of computer navigation in an effort to improve the outcomes for his patients. He performs a wide range of different replacements using different techniques and different types of hip and knee replacements to match the requirements of individuals needs.
Professor Davis is also an expert in revision hip and knee replacement. He sees patients with worn-out or painful hip and knee replacements and uses a number of different procedures including the latest techniques and materials to restore patients function and abilities.
He holds his NHS appointment at the prestigious Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham and works in the world renowned arthroplasty unit, which was made famous by the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing. He also has clinical sessions at Russell's Hall hospital in Dudley. He sees private patients at The West Midlands Hospital and the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital.
He graduated from Birmingham University in 1996 and undertook his basic and higher surgical training in the West Midlands. He undertook a year's fellowship in revision hip and knee arthroplasty in Toronto, Canada. He was appointed to the position of Honorary Professor at the University of Birmingham in 2015.
Professor Davis holds an MSc in Trauma and a postgraduate certificate in medical education as well as the FRCS (Trauma and Orthopaedics). He has led in many areas of training.
He has a strong research background in both clinical and basic research, with over 50 national and international presentations and is Director for Research and Development at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham. He has been invited faculty at national and international meetings on hip and knee replacement; hip and knee revision surgery and the use of computer navigation to improve outcomes for patients.
He was the lead surgeon designer in hip and knee replacements for one of the world's largest computer navigation companies (BrainLab) in devising and using the navigation system. He also undertook numerous reesearch projects with the system, which were published in top peer reviewed journals. He also works closely with orthopaedic implant companies in developing computer navigation in hip replacement and knee replacement in research, in an effort to improve patient's outcomes following the surgery.
He is actively involved in education and currently holds the title of Head of Academy at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital co-ordinating all undergraduate medical education. He is also the module lead for orthopaedics at the University of Birmingham. He is also currently working with Aston University and the development of their new medical school aiding in the development of their undergraduate orthopaedic training.
Professor Davis is married and enjoys spending his free time with his wife and 3 children.
