Virginia Neurosurgeons, PC was founded in 2001 to provide unsurpassed neurosurgical expertise and service to patients of Northern Virginia and the Washington, DC Metropolitan area. The group is the only fully integrated subspecialized neurosurgical practice in the region.

Currently, Virginia Neurosurgeons has four attending neurosurgeons: Dr. Charles Riedel, Dr. Abraham Kader, Dr. Donald Wright and Dr. Sid Chandela. Each member of the group trained at elite academic neurosurgery programs, developed extensive subspecialty clinical and research experience and made significant professional and academic contributions prior to joining the group.

Together, VANS, PC surgeons have over 36 years of academic neurosurgical experience at the attending level and 14 years of experience in private practice.

The quality, sophistication and capabilities offered by the group are unprecedented in the Northern Virginia area. This is reflected not only in the rapid growth of the practice but also its recognition well beyond the metropolitan area. Since its inception five years ago, VANS, PC has seen nearly 5000 patients and carried out over 1250 operations. Our overall growth has averaged better than 40% per year. In brain surgery (craniotomies) growth is even more rapid, exceeding 650% since our first year. We have cared for patients from twenty-nine states, the District of Columbia, the Virgin Islands and Europe. Dr. Donald Wright is a nationally and internationally recognized expert on skull base tumors, acoustic neuromas and pituitary tumors.

Dr. Kader is a cerebrovascular and stereotactic neurosurgeon with important contributions in the understanding of cerebral Arteriovenous malformations and subarachnoid hemorrhage. Dr. Riedel has broad expertise in spinal surgery, was a pioneer in the development of endoscopic and minimally invasive spinal surgery and is an expert on the surgical treatment of hyperhidrosis. Dr. Wright and Dr. Riedel offer full surgical services for the diagnosis and treatment of trigeminal neuralgia. Together they have over ninety publications and have given over four hundred lectures and courses at national and international meetings.

The group plans to add 2-3 more neurosurgeons over the next 2 years at our current rate of expansion.
