Dr. Hribar replaced both of my knees. The 2nd knee was done in May, 2016. I did not have any problems with recovery. Both surgeries went very well. I was able to return to work after 8 weeks. My only regret is that I didn't have them done when he first told me I needed a knee replacement. I caused weakness in my left leg by favoring my right leg. Thus, my right knee just went out on me one day and I had to have that knee replaced first. He's an excellent surgeon. I highly recommend him for knee replacements.
He ruined my life. He did such a terrible job on my hip replacement that I'm in constant pain. The rod he put I n my leg is too long, but I didn't know that until it healed. Once he realized what he'd done, he dropped me like a hot potato. I never heard from him again. He had his nurse call and tell me I'd have to find another doctor. Some days I can barely walk, even with my cane. I've also had to purchase a liftchair as it's difficult for me to rise from a seated position. My life will never be the same.
Dr. Hribar performed a Right Hip replacement approximately 9 years ago. From the beginning this total success hip replacement was a success. The Dr. chose a perfect implant for my young age (46 at time of Implant) and recovery was a breeze. I did my 8 year check-up today- Perfect, looks like I could get 20-30 years (No Issues). This Dr is personable, caring and most of all a Professional with a caring Human/Family oriented side. He supports the military and has been instrumental in allowing me to return to service and achieve retirement. My other hip (the one I have not had replaced yet) is beginning to fail- I have no doubt I will be seeking the skill and surgical skills Dr. Hribar provides for my future operation. God Bless you Dr. Hribar and STAFF- Thank you for being the professionals you all are and giving me a new lease on activity in the remaining years I have!
On my first visit, Dr. Hribar barreled into the exam room, and without even looking at me, threw my x-rays up on the viewer and began discussing my case. It was as if I wasn't there. I gave him the benefit of the doubt and did not leave, at once, as my head told me to do. I was in too much pain to not try to have someone, anyone, help me. Slowly, Dr. Hribar became more human and settled into a better bedside manner. Still, I had to start the in-depth conversation about my problem. Hribar listened, responded, adequately and seemed sincere. He also exhibited some warmth. And the treatment he recommended for me worked. But, I cannot shake that first impression of the first few seconds of meeting him. Dr. Hribar will have to work long and hard to erase my image of him as a somewhat callous and over-challenged MD.
