He completed his Orthopaedic training in 2002 in Sydney and then undertook further training in both joint replacement surgery and trauma. Following a fellowship in lower extremity reconstructive surgery in hip and knee arthroplasty and arthroscopy, he worked as a trauma fellow at Harborview Medical Centre in Seattle. At the completion of the fellowship he was employed as a consultant trauma surgeon for a further 6 months before returning to Australia to begin his own practice.
Dr Molnar has been practicing in the St George since 2005. His expertise and his interests are in hip and knee surgery and in trauma, particularly the treatment of pelvic trauma.
