Dr. Rubin and his assistant Shaun are the absolute best!!! I had my first gel shot in my left knee yesterday and needless to say I was a nervous wreck!😱 Both Shaun and Dr. Rubin made me feel very comfortable. They both explained how things were going to go and reassured me that everything was going to go good, which put a huge smile on my face 😊 Even my mom was very impressed!!! Dr. Rubin explained from beginning to end how things were going to go and during the procedure kept checking on me to make sure I was ok! This is only my second day and I feel good!!! I would highly highly recommend Dr. Rubin and his staff for any orthopedic needs!!!! Extremely personable, professional, and super gentle!!!!! Thank you again everyone at NM

Dr. Sander Rubin, was such a great doctor. Not only was he very professional but also very nice, personable, funny, and really made you feel very comfortable. Never felt rushed and he didn’t leave the room until he felt we had all all our questions and concerns answered. We left the room very satisfied and definitely will go back to see him and the staff. would highly recommend any one looking for a great orthopedic doctor for knee problems to see doctor Rubin!!!!

External Professional Relationships

Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
