Joseph C. Glennon, VMD, DACVS


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 surgeries. 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.
