Joseph C. Glennon, VMD, DACVS

Owner

Joseph Glennon, a board-certified surgeon, founded VSRC over 25 years ago and at the time was the first and only referral center in the region. He is known to have exceptional technical skills as well as a collaborative approach to caring for each patient and client based on their particular need and situation. He believes the best outcomes are always derived when the team of primary care veterinarian, specialist, and pet owner work together on behalf of the patient.

Dr. Glennon received his veterinary medical degree with honors from the University of Pennsylvania where he was a recipient of the Upjohn Award for proficiency in small animal medicine and surgery. He interned at the Animal Medical Center in Manhattan prior to completing a surgical residency at Cornell University. During his residency, he conducted surgical research, published several papers and received the American Animal Hospital Association’s Outstanding Resident Award.

Dr. Glennon is also a Research Associate at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) and Albany Medical Center, where he was appointed the rank of Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Surgery and a National Institute of Health (NIH) Grant Co-Investigator.

Outside of work he is a family man and enjoys spending time with his wife and two sons, and of course a variety of pets including dogs, cats, and horses.

Dr. Fitzpatrick is from a small town in the Florida panhandle. While the climate may be very different here, she sees many similarities in the kindness and generous spirit of the people of Upstate New York which has made her feel right at home. Dr. Fitzpatrick received her veterinary degree from the University of Florida, College of Veterinary Medicine in 2006, where she was valedictorian of her class. She was immediately accepted into a rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery at Colorado State University, which she completed in June 2007. She was then accepted into a highly competitive small animal surgery residency at Cornell University. During the third year of her residency, she served as chief resident for both orthopedic and soft tissue services. While on staff at Cornell, she taught veterinary students, interns and residents, published numerous scientific papers, and completed her surgical credentials to sit for the board examination. She became a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons in February, 2011.

She joined the staff at VSRC in 2010, bringing the cutting edge approaches to treating surgical conditions that are currently utilized at Cornell University. In addition to her broad experience in orthopedic, soft tissue and neurologic procedures, Dr. Fitzpatrick’s special areas of interest include angular limb deformities, corrective osteotomies, surgical oncology, and minimally invasive procedures such as arthroscopy, thoracoscopy and laparoscopy.
