Abraham Kader, MD 

Dear Colleagues and Patients,

It is with great sadness that I am retired from practicing neurosurgery after 27 years; the last two decades with Virginia Neurosurgeons.  I am grateful to my fellow physicians and staff for their support, and most important to the patients who entrusted their care to me.
In order to continue to provide the personalized care and caliber of treatment that patients need and deserve, I highly recommend my partners, Dr. Nikhil Nayak and Dr. Richard Murray.  I would trust either of them to take care of my own family.

I hope you will maintain your relationship with Virginia Neurosurgeons, as I believe the relationship of trust and mutual respect that we have developed over time is important.

Thank you to my fellow physicians for your support over the years and for giving me the opportunity to participate in your patients’ health care. Thank you to the many patients and family members that have given me their trust with their neurosurgical health care.
