Dr. David-Alan Rubin is fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon, sub-specializing in hip and knee replacements. He is committed to providing top-tier care that empowers patients to regain their mobility and quality of life. 

Born in Nashville, Dr. Rubin was interested in orthopedics from a young age. He grew up watching his father work as a general orthopedic surgeon, which inspired him to pursue a medical career. He also lived abroad in Portugal during his parents’ missionary work, which solidified his desire to make a meaningful impact on others’ lives.  

After completing his undergraduate studies with honors at Texas A&M, he pursued his medical degree at the Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine. Driven by his calling, he excelled in his intern year of General Surgery at UT-Houston, followed by a prestigious Orthopedic Surgery residency at the same institution. After six years in Houston, Dr. Rubin spent his fellowship in Hip & Knee Adult Reconstruction at the Mississippi Sports Medicine and Orthopedic Center. His journey has led him to Arlington Orthopedic Associates (AOA), where he aspires to offer the highest quality care to his community. 

Dr. Rubin’s professional mission is guided by a profound sense of responsibility. He believes in providing his patients with the same level of care that he would offer to his own loved ones. His patient-centric philosophy ensures that he recommends treatments aligned with patients’ best interests and walks with them through their recovery journey. He understands the privilege and responsibility of his role as an orthopedic surgeon, and he is dedicated to providing compassionate care. 

In his personal life, Dr. Rubin loves spending time with his family. Alongside his wife Taylor and their two sons, Cal and Reese, he is settling into their new home in Mansfield. He also enjoys golfing, snow skiing, wakeboarding, scuba diving, and cheering on his Texas A&M Aggies.
