Two Riverside Neurosurgeons Named to Newsweek’s 2024 List of Best Spine Surgeons in the U.S.

Dr. William McAllister and Dr. Dean Kostov

We are proud to announce that two of our esteemed neurosurgeons, Dr. Dean Kostov and Dr. William McAllister, with Riverside Neurological & Spine Institute, have been named to Newsweek's inaugural list of the 150 best spine surgeons in the United States for 2024. This prestigious recognition highlights their exceptional contributions to the field of spine surgery and their commitment to providing the highest quality of care to their patients.

“We are incredibly proud of Dr. Kostov and Dr. McAllister for this well-deserved, national recognition,” said Michael Oshiki, M.D., President of Riverside Regional Medical Center. “Their expertise and commitment continue to enhance the quality of life for countless patients.”

Newsweek’s ranking of the top spine surgeons is based on Medicare data that evaluates the quality-of-care ratings by peers of each surgeon and considers their certifications by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. The 150 leading spine surgeons recognized represent the 20 states with the highest numbers of practicing physicians, making this an exclusive and highly competitive list.

“Dr. Kostov and Dr. McAllister have demonstrated outstanding dedication and commitment to innovation in spine surgery,” says Mike Dacey, M.D., President and CEO of Riverside Health. “I am certain that if Newsweek had rated the top 10, both Dr. McAllister and Dr. Kostov would undoubtably be on that list.”
