For more than 15 years, Dr. Rush has been a familiar face to Baldwin County patients, but the name Rush is also legendary in the history of bone fractures. In 1936, his grandfather, Dr. Leslie V. Rush, Sr performed the first known intramedullary fixation in the United States. This revolutionary treatment of bone fractures led to the development of the “Rush Pin”, which is still used today.
