As the Medical Director and founder of Orange County Pain Specialist, Dr. Rubin is among the top minimally invasive interventional spine and joint pain specialists in the nation. Dr. Rubin’s vision was to assemble a team of like-minded pain management physicians that will treat our patient’s pain needs with a minimalist/nonsurgical approach that is non-detrimental to the human body, non-addictive, non-sedating, and incorporates a mild mixture of western medicines with eastern philosophies.
As a naturalist/athlete at heart , Dr. Rubin has focused his practice towards regenerative medicine with a multifaceted nonsurgical approach towards spinal and joint disorders. Traditional western medicine has been geared towards masking one’s pain with narcotics/muscle relaxant medications, or other various synthetic pharmaceutical medications that have numerous unwanted side effects while never identifying the source of pain.
Dr. Rubin’s medical practice is geared towards identifying the root or underlying cause of a vast array of spinal or joint disorders. The most commonly identified spinal disorders include herniated discs or inflamed facet joints causing ongoing neck pain or lower back pain which may be combined with arm pain or leg pain known as sciatica. Joint disorders for shoulder pain and knee pain include rotator cuff tears, subacromial bursitis, acromioclaviculitis, and meniscal tears to name a few. Once identified, the most up to date nonsurgical minimally invasive pain management techniques are performed under live fluoroscopic guidance at our state of the art facility located in Newport Beach, California. This is combined with cutting edge Regenerative Medicine modalities including the administration of Autologous Stem Cell therapy, Platelet Rich Plasm (PRP), or Natural Medication injections directed into/around the discs or joints spaces while avoiding synthetic medications or surgical interventions that may be detrimental to the human body. This is all implemented in conjunction with either a local anesthetic or twilight sedation to offer a naturally comfortable pain free experience.
