I am a Board Certified, General Surgeon who specializes in Minimal Access Surgery known as Laparoscopy.  I was born in New York but grew up in Daytona Beach, Florida. I attended the University of Florida before attending Medical School at Wake Forest University.  I completed my surgical residency at Mount Sinai Medical Center on Miami Beach in 1987. I began practicing General Surgery in the South Miami area in 1987 until starting my solo practice and my Laparoscopic Center of excellence in 1991.  I was an early adopter of minimal access surgery and was one of 10 invited surgeons to introduce this technology into the People’s Republic of China in 1991.

I was an early adopter of minimal access surgery and was one of 10 invited surgeons to introduce this technology into the People’s Republic of China in 1991. I have lectured extensively on these topics all around the world. I have written many journal articles and textbook chapters on Gallbladder and Hernia Surgery. I am well known for my expertise on the treatment of Sport’s Hernias and have been part of the Miami Heat Surgical team since 1988. I also care for members of the Miami Dolphins, Florida Panthers, FIU Panthers and many high school athletes as well as “weekend warriors”.
My hobbies include volunteering at Shark Valley in the Florida Everglades as a mobile bike patrol. I play Bass Guitar in a garage band, ride Paso Fino horses and play golf in my spare time. I am married, have 3 daughters and 3 granddaughters.
I have a small office that prides itself on personalized care.

Patient Feedback

It was been a year since Dr. Edelman completed the surgery on me to stop my hands from sweating. What a year it has been! I have grown leaps and bounds socially and emotionally. I don’t have to worry about my sweaty hands anymore. I have Dr. Edelman to thank for this! He was very professional, very caring, and simply an excellent surgeon! I could not be more pleased being under his care, and I will be forever grateful for it. Words really can’t express how much I am appreciative, but this review will have to do. Thank you so much Dr. Edelman for changing my life for the better!

  Dr. Edelman is amazing!!! He has the best bedside manner! He is knowledgeable and takes his time to explain things. I had surgery today and I am in no pain and even went to the supermarket. I would recommend him in a heartbeat 💗. His staff is also amazing! They are so nice and helpful.

  I had hernia surgery with Dr. Edelman in March, and everything went absolutely perfect. Aside from being a fine surgeon, Dr. Edelman treats his patients with genuine care, explains the procedure in clear, simple terms, and does not try to force a decision on the patient. You can’t help but trust this doctor and go into surgery with full confidence in a positive outcome. The office staff is wonderful–very helpful, knowledgeable, always willing to answer questions in a friendly manner. I could not be happier with my choice of surgeon and his office.
