Dr. Alix Partnow was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in 2002 from Williams College where she majored in Chemistry. She went on to receive her DVM degree from the University Of Illinois College Of Veterinary Medicine in 2007. In June of that year she joined the team at VCA Veterinary Specialty Center of Seattle where she completed a rotating internship.
Following completion of her internship, she traveled back to the Midwest to pursue a residency in neurology/neurosurgery as well as a Master of Science degree in veterinary medicine and surgery at the University of Missouri. Her master's thesis was on Paradoxical Dysuria among Dog with Degenerative Lumbosacral Stenosis. Having completed her residency and masters training in 2007, Dr. Partnow is happy to return to VSC to once again serve the pets and people of the Pacific Northwest.
Her professional interests include neuro-oncology, heritable and degenerative conditions of the central nervous system, neurosurgery and post-operative rehabilitation. Outside the hospital Dr. Partnow is an avid cook/baker and a distance runner. You'll probably find her exploring local parks and trails with her two dogs.
