Dr. Scott Hrnack, a board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon specializing in General Orthopedics, Sports Medicine, Arthroscopy, and Joint Replacement.

Dr. Hrnack has excelled in sports and academics throughout his life. Growing up in the North Dallas area, he competed in gymnastics both for J.J. Pearce High School and at the private club level. After high school, he attended Syracuse University on both athletic and academic scholarships. Throughout his gymnastics career, he won various titles and honors at the high school, college, state, and national levels. He was named the 1996 Eastern Coast Athletic Conference rookie of the year. Dr. Hrnack even earned a spot on the Team 2000 USA National Gymnastics Squad in 1996 when he suffered a serious shoulder injury. While the injury ended his competitive gymnastics career, his surgeon and the excellent care he received also led him to consider a career in medicine. Dr. Hrnack took the same discipline and determination that earned him a prestigious athletic career and poured it into pursuing medicine.

Dr. Hrnack returned to Texas to begin his medical training at the University of Texas at Houston. Following graduation from medical school, he began his orthopedic training at Tulane University in New Orleans. Hurricane Katrina temporarily relocated Dr. Hrnack to Vanderbilt in Nashville where he continued to train for 9 months before landing back in Texas to finish his last three years of training at Texas Tech University.

After residency, Dr. Hrnack pursued advanced specialty fellowship training in arthroscopic procedures and sports management in Plano, Texas. At his fellowship and during residency, he published several articles, presented research at several meetings, and co-authored a book chapter. He is a volunteer reviewer and is on the Editorial Board for the Arthroscopy Journal. Dr. Hrnack opened his practice in Decatur, Texas from 2010-2014. He briefly moved to Southlake, Texas before landing in Grapevine, Texas where he joined the medical team at Texas Institute of Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine. Now located in Keller, Texas with Active Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, Dr. Hrnack is leading a practice dedicated to providing patients with the most personal experience using the latest advancements in orthopedic technology.
