Dr. Lucian Bogdan Solomon is Professor in the Discipline of Orthopaedics and Trauma at The University of Adelaide and Clinical Academic in the Department of Orthopaedic and Trauma of Royal Adelaide Hospital. He studied medicine at the Medical University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania and has a PhD in Anatomy form the Medical University of Targu-Mures, Romania. He trained as an orthopaedic surgeon in Romania and Australia and undertook clinical and research fellowships in USA, Germany and Australia. He has worked in clinical orthopaedics and performed basic and clinical orthopaedic research for over 20 years focusing on traumatic, developmental and degenerative pathologies of the pelvis, hip and knee.
Prof Solomon’s research spans clinical practice, pathology, basic science and bioengineering. As a clinical academic with a strong basic medical science background, he aims to bring together clinical expertise and basic medical science to address problems in his areas of orthopaedic practice, namely hip and knee reconstruction, infection and trauma. His major scientific achievements in recent years have been related to translational research in these areas and has become a recognised leader in joint replacement and orthopaedic trauma research, not only in Australia but also internationally.
