Richard Ostrup, M.D., F.A.C.S., was recently selected by his peers as one of the top neurosurgeons in San
Diego. Ostrup was selected by San Diego county physicians with a valid California medical license who were asked to select the physician to be recognized for excellence in medicine. According to the San Diego County Medical Society, the organization that oversees the “Physician of Exceptional Excellence” award each year, Dr. Ostrup is one of only 10 physicians that has been honored with the award for the past 13 years.
Ostrup will be recognized by the San Diego Magazine in its September issue as one of the “2016 Top Doctors” in San Diego. The San Diego County Medical Society, San Diego Magazine, and Champions for Health will recognize Ostrup and other physicians during a “Top Doctors” gala, slated for October 29, 2016.
Dr. Ostrup has served as the chief of Neurosurgery at both Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego and Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla. He is the unaffiliated neuro-trauma coordinator for the San Diego Chargers and has a strong interest in sports neurosurgery. He practices general neurosurgery with special interest in the spine, complex spine, brain tumors and peripheral nerve disorders.
