Prior to his career in medicine, he worked at Bain & Company as a management consultant as well as at Major League Baseball in the league economics and strategy department.

Dr. Rubenstein attended The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, where he was inducted into the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha society upon graduation. He completed his orthopedic residency training at the University of California San Francisco, one of the nation’s top-ranked programs in the field.

Ultimately a patient will achieve their best outcomes only after clearly understanding the available treatment options and making an informed decision.
