Biography

After beginning tertiary life as a commerce and law student, Dr Edwin Morrison, pivoted and turned his attention to medicine and subsequently plastic and reconstructive surgery. Having been surrounded by microsurgeons from an early age this perhaps was always likely.

Edwin completed his plastic and reconstructive surgery training in Victoria and became a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in 2019. He has current appointments at St Vincent’s Hospital, Peter Mac Cancer Centre and Canberra Hospital and his interests include advanced skin cancer, surgery of the head and neck region and hand surgery. 

With a thirst for greater knowledge, experience and broader horizons Edwin set off in the midst of a once-in-a-generation pandemic to pursue fellowships both interstate and abroad. Uniquely this included head and neck surgery fellowships, focusing on the surgical resection and reconstruction of advanced skin cancers at Sydney’s Chris O’Brien Lifehouse and at Royal Brisbane and Women’s hospital. These were followed by a prestigious clinical microsurgical fellowship at the world-renowned Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre, in New York which also included extensive travel throughout the United States to visit experts in the field. 

Edwin is a devotee of the art of plastic and reconstructive surgery. He is actively engaged in research and education in the discipline.

Edwin lives locally with his wife and two boys.

Better and fairer care. Always.
