  • Neurology

    Just like humans, animals can experience a range of challenges with their nervous system, including pain, problems with coordination, limb weakness, and seizures, to name a few.

    The Neurology team at Penn Vet's Ryan Hospital specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of animals with naturally occurring neurological disorders. We also study these diseases and disorders to advance our understanding and treatment protocols.

  • Neurosurgery

    Penn Vet neurosurgeons are committed to advancing neurosurgery to enhance the efficacy and scope of our discipline, and provide the best quality of life for our patients.


Here is all the information you will need not just to make an appointment, and prepare for your visit with our team of board-certified clinicians. We also go over what you can expect when you visit us.

To schedule an appointment with one of our neurologists, please call the Ryan Appointment Desk (215-746-8387) and request a neurology appointment—no referral needed. We do require a physical appointment prior to providing a consultation.
