Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Rubin "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."

I had severe pain from my low back, to my left leg. So bad I could no walk or stand for any length of time. Had a bulging disc at LS-S1. Back injections did not give me relief. Had a macro discectomy as outpatient, and I am pain free! - Jenny H.?

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

Excellent, professional, and courteous care. Would definitely return to Dr. Sullivan or Dr. Rubin for neurological or neurosurgical care if needed in the future.
