Care Philosophy

Legacy Neurosurgery aims to provide patients with life-changing care through ?today's leading surgical treatments. Our experienced team offers comprehensive care for patients with spinal and disc conditions, disorders, and peripheral nerve conditions—from minimally invasive spinal intervention, injection procedures, and conservative modes of therapy to state-of-the-art neurosurgery.

We specialize in non-operative spinal procedures and outpatient cervical and lumbar spine surgery, and always take the least invasive route possible for each patient. Preferably, we avoid any type of surgery if at all possible. When surgery is necessary though, we always opt for the most minimally invasive procedure. We even adapt minimally invasive surgery (MIS) techniques commonly performed on the brain for the spine, a unique, innovative approach few other neurosurgery practices utilize.

Both hands were completely numb. Doctor Rubin was worried that I wouldn’t get feeling back due to the severity of injuries. But as soon as the anesthesia wore off the feeling came back. I have had other surgeries and none were as successful as this one- Alan Bauer
in Buffalo, NY |
Excellent, professional, and courteous care. Would definitely return to Dr. Sullivan or Dr. Rubin for neurological or neurosurgical care if needed in the future.

Prior to procedure, I had constant pain in my left leg from my hip to my ankle. I also had numbness in my left foot. My lower back pain migrated from the tolerable to almost debilitating at times. After my procedure, I felt immediate and sustained relief in my leg and foot. Recovery was uncomfortable at worst with minimal pain from the actual surgery and, after about 10 day , I had no pain or lingering pain at all” – Scott

I couldn't walk without hobbling around. The pain was unbearable 90% of the time. After surgery, I don't have any pain. It's non-existent now compared to what it was - Ricky M.
in Toronto, ON |
A week before surgery I could no longer drive and walked holding onto what ever was stationary. All I wanted from Dr. Rubin was to walk. He made that possible.- C. Carol
Today was my first injection and everyone from the front desk to the checkout was so comforting and helpful.

Love the attention I have received from staff and Dr. Rubin. They care a lot about how I feel and my concerns. - Janice Huckabee
in Toronto, ON |
The entire staff and Dr. Rubin are very caring, receptive, informative, and responsive to my needs and concerns. They are exceptional. Very professional. - Bee
I had severe (8-10) right leg pain since 11/16. I researched the internet and found Dr. Rubin's name and credentials on which he was highly rated and others were very impressed. He initially recommended steroid injections, which due to the level of my back condition were not effective. With no relief, he recommended surgery- lumbar decompression and fusion. It has been almost two weeks post-op and I am totally pain free. He and his staff spend much time and give detailed instructions, that if yo

Dr. Rubin explained everything that was going on in terms that I could understand. We set up a plan of action of how he thought it was best to treat my neck that would help me get relief while putting surgery for as long as possible
in Charleston, AR |
Dr. Rubin was extremely attentive to the problems I was having. He took great care to get to know and my needs. When the shots we tried were not as effective as I had hoped, I appreciate that he did not waste time knowing the surgery would likely help walk without pain again. Thanks to Dr. Rubin's expertise my quality of life has improved and will continue to get better. Jaime and Kristin could not be better people to work with. They truely listen and make me feel like I'm their priority.
in Hamburg, AR |
Definitely have to say that Dr. Rubin and his staff at Legacy Neuro have been nothing but awesome to me- before, during and after my surgery. From taking the time to explain my problems to me; to getting me through surgery and recovery period. I can't thank him enough for a great job well done! I would definitely recommend Dr. Rubin to anyone. -Michael Willhite
I would highly recommend Legacy to anyone who needed care. Everyone at Legacy has been super great at explaining everything and helping me get better. I was in extreme pain when I came here, now 3 months later and I am pain free. Dr. David Rubin and his staff are excellent, knowledgeable and caring. - Janice Tippit
in Mongolia, AR |
The doctors and staff are primarily concerned with your well-being. They don't rush to recommend surgery and they have been highly effective at treating and relieving my back pain. I've been a patient for over 5 years and I wouldn't go to anyone else's. Dr. Rubin is very conservative with surgery. Does and excellent job with injections and Everyone is very friendly,understanding and kind. - Shari Ferguson
in Greenwood, AR |
Dr. Rubin and his staff were extremely nice. Two days after surgery I could already feel a huge difference. My pain is now gone in my left leg, and my incision is unnoticeable. If I could give Dr. Rubin ten stars I would.
in Atkins, AR |
Dr. Rubin's bed side manner is very laid back & relatable. He was informative & made me feel comfortable with all aspects of the procedure. Thanks to Dr. Rubin my pain is completely gone!

Dr. Rubin performed a disectomy on me in June 2015. I truly feel like I owe the ability to walk again to him. I came in on a Friday afternoon, 30 mins before they closed, and he didn't hesitate to take care of me. I had to have emergency surgery for cauda equina syndrome. I was in the hospital for 5 days. He was so easy to understand and so compassionate. I couldn't recommend a better Doctor! He is the best in my eyes!
in Batesville, AR |
I would recommend Dr. Rubin to anyone after my experience with Dr. Rubin and his staff. He is very professional and will spend time with you explaining all options. I had herniated disc @ L5-S1 and couldn't walk too good or stand too long. I had very bad pain. Dr. Rubin performed a discectomy and I'm doing well today. The extreme pain is gone and I'm getting back to work.If you are in search of a neurosurgeon call Dr. David Rubin.

Best sergeon Ive met. I went from etreme pain(from my back, down my leg to my toe) to none. I cant say enough about the professionalism and diligence of this surgeon. Most of all he cares, which is very important when you are in dire need of attention . I had L4, L5 decompression and disectomy with minimal invasive procedure. I had procedure 1/07/16, twelve days ago, I am like a new person. This doctor is a miracle.
in Russellville AR |
I had bad back pain radiating down my legs. He gave me a very thorough explanation of what was causing the pain. Dr Rubin the surgery with no problems during or after. Pain free. I would highly recommend him.
in Jacksonville, AR |
Dr. Rubin explained what was causing my lower back and leg pain and what surgery was needed. After surgery the leg pain was gone. Now 3 weeks after surgery the pain at the surgery site is almost gone. I think Dr. Rubin is one of the best surgeons around and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Dr Rubin is a very nice guy and a caring doctor
in Pine Bluff, AR |
Wonderful DR, Takes time to explain Operative Procedure. Talks to you directly. Nurses and office staff are professional and polite. All charges are explained, my medicare and supplemental Insurance covered 100% of cost. No hidden extra charges billed from Radiology, Lab, office visits and surgeon charges over Medicare allowed charges for type of procedure, this is what happens 45 miles south of Little Rock. Dr Rubins surgery resulted in restoring sensation and function in my Left Arm.

Dr. Rubin is my hero. He accepted my case as outsourced by the VA. I had suffered with terrible 24 hour a day pain for 10 months prior to my surgery. I compare the pain to that of having a toothache, but it travels from the small of the back, through the buttocks, and down the back of the leg to the foot!!! The pain was so crippling, I could not walk for a period of time each morning. My recovery pain was less than my nerve root pain. Dr. Rubin is kind, brilliant, and a gift from God!
in Damascus, AR |
Dr. Rubin was right on with his diagnosis. He explained what was causing the problem and what he would have to do to fix it. The operation was simple, with only a two inch incision he was able to repair the damage and relieve the pain in my back and right leg. I would highly recommend him.
