Professor Lucian Bogdan Solomon (Bogdan) is an Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in the management of complex pelvis, hip and knee conditions. A leading clinician and academic, Bogdan is passionate about improving patient outcomes. He is internationally recognised in the field and his translational research has made many important contributions that have significantly improved patient outcomes in many areas of his clinical practice. Establishing Adelaide Arthroplasty Clinic, together with partners Ahmed and Kush, is the realisation of their continued collaboration in seeing and managing patients together. Their friendship spans many years and began during their surgical training as orthopaedic surgeons.
A compassionate clinician, Bogdan spares no effort in understanding his patients and their conditions. His approach explores alternatives that are dependent on the patient situation and response to treatment. The first steps for a successful treatment may evolve from the use of proven technologies, or a stepwise use of new technologies when old ones were proven inadequate or are not available. He has a vast experience, is progressive and focussed and works within a collaborative team at the Adelaide Arthroplasty Clinic.
Bogdan is an active member in multiple international societies, including the prestigious International Hip Society (of which there are less than 100 members worldwide), and is a past chairman of the Asia Pacific Hip Society (Hip section of the Asia Pacific Orthopaedic Association). He is Head of Unit in the Orthopaedic and Trauma Service at Royal Adelaide Hospital and Leader of the Discipline of Orthopaedics and Trauma at The University of Adelaide.
Prof Solomon leads and mentors multiple research teams that span clinical practice and clinical outcomes, basic science including biological response to prostheses and infection, bioengineering and biomechanics. He also mentors and develops our future medical practitioners, teaching medical students, junior medical doctors, registrars, fellows and higher degree students. This type of experience proves invaluable with patients, as he can translate his sophisticated knowledge of complex issues into simple explanations.
Outside of patient consultations, surgery, teaching and research (if you can believe that he has any spare time at all), he is enjoying spending time with his family and friends, spreading several continents, and especially, most recently, with his first grandson. He loves his gardening, bushwalking and skiing.
