About Our Practice

Dr. Bruce Rudin is an expert in the treatment of work related back injuries with an area of focus on surgical management of the adult spine using a minimally invasive approach. Dr. Rudin graduated with honors from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 1987.

He is a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and a diplomate of the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery. Dr. Rudin is a former co chair of the Department of Spine Surgery at Christiana Care and serves as an adjunct associate professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at the University of Delaware. He is a member of the North American Spine Society, Delaware Society of Orthopaedic Surgeons, The Medical Society of Delaware and the New Castle County Medical Society.

Dr. Rudin was Delaware’s first fellowship trained spinal surgeon and has helped develop spinal surgical techniques both regionally and nationally with a focus on minimally invasive approaches and disc replacement. He is a nationally recognized speaker on the management of cervical and lumbar spinal conditions. Dr. Rudin was the first spine surgeon to perform total disc replacements in Delaware, and has performed the largest volume of total disc replacements in the Mid Atlantic Region.

He also serves as the chairman of the Workers Compensation Health Care Advisory Panel appointed by both recent Governors Minner and Markell. As chairman, he was instrumental in writing the state law that governs the management of injured workers in the State of Delaware. He was the only physician member of the panel that shaped the new system of provider certification, treatment guidelines and reimbursement rates.

Consistently, Dr. Rudin has been voted by his peers as Top Doctor for Spine Surgery in a poll conducted by Delaware Today, in which area doctors are surveyed about who they would have treat them.
