Specialist Plastic Surgeon
MBBS MS FRACS FAICD
Tim Edwards has been a Specialist Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon since 1998, honing the craft he learned over ten years of postgraduate surgical training. Initially, this training started in South Australia’s major adult and paediatric hospitals, following on to the world-famous Canniesburn Plastic Surgery Unit in the United Kingdom.
Tim credits his background in elite sport, where he competed in swimming, waterpolo, sailing and basketball at local, state and national representative level, for endowing him with a strong focus and belief in the importance of the team rather than the individual. This led him to become one of the founding surgeons of Adelaide Plastic Surgery, developing an experienced team of Specialist Plastic Surgeons, anaesthetists, medical and nursing professionals, and administrative staff, who all play their role in ensuring the highest level of patient care and safety.
Outside of the operating theatre, Tim is active in the philanthropic community, having spent many years initially with the South Australian State Library Foundation and, more recently, with the James and Diana Ramsay Foundation. At a local level, he is also a life member of the Walkerville Junior Football Club.
