About Dr Ediri

Australian-trained Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in hip and knee conditions.


Dr. Ediri grew up in New Zealand and completed his medical education through the University of Auckland. Upon completion of his medical training, he migrated to Australia in 2008. Dr. Ediri has since then completed the Australian Orthopaedic Surgical training program and has worked in major public hospitals in Sydney and Newcastle, NSW.

He was awarded the fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and the Australian Orthopaedic Association in 2022. He has also subsequently completed a subspecialty fellowship in knee arthroscopy and arthroplasty to perform sports knee injuries and knee reconstructive surgery through keyhole techniques.

Patient-specific treatment plans

Dr. Ediri is fully trained in all contemporary technology, including direct anterior hip surgery and robotic knee surgery. His philosophy is delivering patient-specific surgery to get the best outcomes for the patient's specific needs.

For knee replacement surgery, Dr. Ediri uses kinematic alignment strategies. This means aligning the component tailored to the anatomy for improved patient-reported outcomes.

For hip replacement surgery, Dr. Ediri uses 3D modelling technology to position the implants in positions of maximum function and safety. This facilitates a maximum safe range of movement for patients, which allows for more activities such as tennis, yoga, and golf.


In addition, Dr. Ediri also performs revision surgery (redo surgery), which involves complex reconstruction of joint replacements that are failing due to various reasons such as recurrent dislocations, loosening, infection, and fracture.

Dr. Ediri has a keen interest in treating sports knee injuries such as ACL ruptures, dislocating patella, meniscal injuries, and cartilage injuries. Furthermore, he manages trauma and is involved in managing complex orthopaedic trauma through Lyell McEwin Hospital.
