About Veterinary Surgical Centers
We're passionate about improving quality of life for dogs and cats through the use of advanced surgical techniques and comprehensive rehabilitative care.In 2004, Dr. Anke Langenbach set out to redefine veterinary surgical care in the region by starting a small mobile surgery service that championed the highest standards of care and compassion. For several years, she and a team of one or two technicians traveled to local veterinary practices and performed orthopedic and soft tissue surgeries.That service has blossomed into a full-scale surgery, physical rehabilitation, and pain management practice with three full-time locations—in Vienna, Leesburg, and Winchester—and a staff of 70 passionate and dedicated individuals. Meet our team of board-certified surgeons and certified rehabilitation practitioners. We've built a loyal base among local primary veterinarians and pet owners, who entrust us with the care of their patients and pets every day.Learn more by visiting our website: http://www.vscvets.com/who-we-are
