The former Welsh Under-21 international has struggling with a knee cartilage problem and his recovery is set to take up to four weeks.
Edwards has only played twice this season as Rochdale have moved to the top of Division Three.
The Welshman could have a fight on his hands if he wants to regain his place in the first team as young understudy Matt Gilkes has performed admirably in his absence in goal.
Club physio Andy Thorpe confirmed that the minor operation was a success and that he should be fit to play by mid October.
"Taff (Edwards) has had his keyhole surgery done," said Thorpe. "That involved two incisions, one for the camera and one for the surgical tool.
"That tool has shaved away a rouge piece of cartilage that was trapped between the joint and he should be back in around three to four weeks."
