Dr Kush Shrestha is an Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in the hip and knee. Kush has successfully collaborated with Bogdan and Ahmed for some time, sharing outlooks and expertise, and proactively delivering best-in-class care. This has laid a strong foundation for patient approaches, support and care in establishing Adelaide Arthroplasty Clinic together.
He is Deputy Head of Orthopaedic Department, Royal Darwin Hospital, a visiting medical specialist at Darwin Private Hospital and Ashford Private Hospital, senior clinical lecturer at Flinders University, clinical lecturer at Adelaide University and Director of Training for the Australian Orthopaedic Association. He continuously seeks to develop his hip and knee skill- set to the highest of standards too, attending Continuing Professional Development seminars and courses in his primary area of focus, the hip and knee.
Before pursuing public and private practice, Kush studied adult hip and knee reconstructive surgery and sports medicine in Canada and has applied his expertise in rural medicine in Australia and overseas. He supported Nepalese people with post-earthquake disaster management and performed Orthopaedic operations in Antigua, Guatemala, as a participant in ‘Operation Walk’ during his fellowship training in Canada.
His compassion for those in need of access to orthopaedic treatment has developed into establishing AussieMed Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation established to support health care projects internationally, as well as humanitarian medical missions. In 2018 and 2019 he led a multidisciplinary Australian medical team to Nepal, to oversee an International Hip / Knee arthroplasty symposium. Ahmed has also joined the team and together, they are part of a life changing team that regularly travels to Nepal.
Outside of work, Kush’s passion translates to his family. He is a proud father of three, cheering on the side of a football pitch (soccer) most weekends. His eldest son has recently started playing professional soccer.
