Dr. Hribar, a native of Western Pennsylvania, joined Greater Pittsburgh Orthopaedic Associates in 2007. He graduated with honors from Gannon University, then attended medical school at Temple University. An internship and Orthopaedic Surgery residency followed at Hamot Medical Center and Shriner’s Hospital for Children in Erie, Pennsylvania. He was privileged to have served as Chief Resident at both facilities.
Dr. Hribar’s main professional interest is in the latest technical advancements in knee and hip joint replacement surgery such as less invasive surgery, customized patient components, and the use of newer materials to replace joint surfaces. Dr. Hribar was one of the first Orthopaedic Surgeons in Western Pennsylvania to perfom knee replacement with the oxinium knee system, designed to decrease wear and increase lifetime of the knee replacement.
“Now is an exciting time in Orthopaedics. Technical breakthroughs have improved the durability of joint replacement, which, in turn, allows us to definitively treat arthritis at a younger age than before. Customized jigs for preparing a knee for replacement and computer assistance allows us to improve alignment closer to normal.”
When not practicing Orthopaedics, Dr. Hribar enjoys spending time with his wife and their three children. You can also find him on the sidelines of the Miracle League where he manages baseball for special needs children.
