About Dr. Hlubik
Dr. Hlubik is a board certified general orthopaedic surgeon. Though he treats injuries and conditions of all types, he specializes in fracture care, arthritis care, and hip and knee replacements. Dr. Hlubik understands the importance of guiding patients to make the right choice for their care, which means presenting all the options and answering all of your questions before he leaves the room. He treats patients with compassion and strives to earn your trust over the course of your care. He believes he is a partner in your recovery.
Dr. Hlubik is a New Jersey native, and his medical education brought his family to Buffalo - in fact, he thought he’d be here temporarily. Instead he fell in love with the area and with his now-wife, with whom he’s now raising two young children. When he’s not working, Dr. Hlubik enjoys golfing, watching the Yankees, and cheering for Georgetown basketball.
How have joint replacements changed in the last ten years?
“We used to have to keep people in the hospital for a long time after a joint replacement, and they’d have to get all these tests, and be stuck in bed and woken up all through the night. We’ve gotten to the point where a lot of healthy patients, we get them out the same day, and they do even better. They don’t have to sit in the hospital racking up bills and risking infection, they can sleep in their own bed, and they have excellent outcomes. Outpatient joint replacements are becoming the norm.”
If you weren’t a physician, what else might you be doing?
“I think I would still want to be in the medical field, where I could combine science and helping patients. Probably some type of engineer that designs medical devices.”
