Edwin E. Spencer, Jr., M.D. is originally from the coast of North Carolina and completed his undergraduate training at North Carolina State University. He graduated from Duke Medical School and completed his orthopaedic residency at the University of Michigan. During his training, he became very involved in research and completed several research projects and helped author several book chapters. He strongly believes that research is a cornerstone of orthopaedics and as such procured grants from the Mid-America Orthopaedic Association and the Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation and private industry. He subsequently completed a fellowship in shoulder and elbow surgery at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation.

He has continued to perform research at Knoxville Orthopaedic Clinic and helped establish the MOON (Multicenter Orthopaedic Outcomes Network). Through that collaboration with MOON he has been awarded the Charles S. Neer award for research (the highest award for shoulder and elbow research) twice in 2011 and 2013. He was also voted as one of the top 28 shoulder and elbow surgeons in the US multiple times. In addition has been voted as a Castle Connolly Top Doc for the last 12 years and featured in the Cityview Top Docs.
