as. MUDr. Jan Lesenský, MD, Ph.D.

Head of the center and surgical chief

He started working at the orthopaedic clinic at Bulovka in summer 2006 as a graduate of the 1st Faculty of Medicine of Charles University. He has been involved in oncological orthopaedics since 2008, when he took over the outpatient clinic from professor Matějovský. In 2010 he completed the EFORT travelling fellowship and later successfully qualified for a 4-month fellowship at the renowned Rizzoli Institute in Bologna, Italy, where oncological orthopaedics was shaped. Upon his return to Czech Republic he implemented the method of bone reconstruction using a combined graft (also known as Capanna technique). In 2011 he passed the board certification with a distinction from the committee. In 2014, he completed the medical diploma nostrification for the United States (USMLE tests crowned with ECFMG diploma) and later successfully applied for the world's most prestigious clinical fellowship in oncological orthopaedics at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. He completed the fellowship in summer 2017. Following his return to the Czech Republic, he has introduced several new methods into medical practice and continues to develop international cooperation and continues to develop oncological orthopaedics in the Czech Republic. In 2018 he was appointed the surgical chief at the department of Oncological orthopaedics and co-founded the specialised centre in 2020. He continues to publish his research and gives lectures on international medical symposiums on frequent basis.

as. MUDr. Zdeněk Matějovský, CSc.

Chief of conservative and systemic treatment and Head of interdisciplinary commision

Consultant physician and PhD in surgical sciences, specialist in orthopaedics and clinical oncology. Thanks to his father, Prof. MUDr. Zdeněk Matějovský, DrSc., he has been interested in oncological topics ever since his studies. After graduation, he joined the Orthopaedic Clinic of the 2nd Faculty of Medicine at Charles University. A decisive factor for his future direction was a one-year study stay at the Vienna University Orthopaedic Clinic in 1990-91, then chaired by Prof. Dr. Med. R. Kotz, the world's leading expert in orthopaedic oncology. In 1994, he defended his PhD thesis on the topic "Possibilities of resection treatment for neoplasms of the lower limbs in children". This was followed by additional internships at the Schulthes Clinic in Zurich, a study tour in Japan, and a observership at the University Clinic of Miami. After his board exams in clinical orthopaedics in 1999, he took over the duties of the head of the Department of Clinical Orthopaedics from MUDr. I. Kofránek in 2002. Here he introduced some new chemotherapy regimens and contributed to its intensification. He also introduced some new surgical procedures, such as individual pelvic replacements or reimplantation of irradiated bone after pelvic resections, conversion of resection arthrodesis of the knee to TEP. He has maintained the tradition of Thursday onco-orthopaedic outpatient clinics established by his late father.
