Dr. Robert J. Rubino, M.D., FACOG Credits: New Jersey Monthly Magazine

SUMMIT, NJ - Dr. Robert J. Rubino, M.D., FACOG, has been named as a Top Doctor by New Jersey Monthly Magazine for the ninth time. The honor is detailed in the publication's 'Top Docs' November issue, available on newsstands now.

Rubino is the CEO of The Rubino OB/GYN Medical Group, with five offices including the recent acquisition of a Madison location, and now features a group to 10 physicians, with the addition of Drs. Vivian Chou and Abigail Whetstone.

Active in clinical research as well as in providing medical care to women and families since 1995, Rubino is an alumnus of Rutgers Medial School and completed his obstetrics and gynecology residency at University Hospital, whose Board of Directors he was recently appointed to by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

A Summit resident for more than two decades, Rubino was first elected to the Summit Common Council in 2011, and re-elected in 2014. He served as Council President for two successive terms, in 2014 and 2015. He has also served as President of the Board of Health.

An influential OB/GYN, Rubino is a recognized expert in minimally invasive, in-office procedures, including Her Option® cryoablation to stop heavy menstrual bleeding and MyoSure® to remove uterine fibroids.

He recently completed a study that examines performing endometrial ablation simultaneously with fibroid removal. This follows a significant study he previously published, demonstrating fibroids and polyps can be successfully removed in an office setting.

In addition, Rubino helped in the development of the CystoSure® catheter for evaluating patients after pelvic surgery. Currently, he is conducting a study for a suture-free skin closure technique for abdominal incisions, toward the aim of decreasing the duration of surgery.

“The one constant in medicine is progression,” said Rubino, adding, “This is especially true with my practice, as it continually incorporates new research developments and innovations in technology for diagnosis and treatment.”

Rubino has been active on many initiatives for Summit including the Community Center renovation and Glenside parking expansion projects, the downtown 'parklet' and ridesharing pilot programs, establishing bike lanes on DeForest Avenue and the Summit Park Line project to convert abandoned rail lines for use by pedestrians and cyclists. Rubino frequently represents the City at Union County Freeholder meetings.
