Dr. Michael Wong
Dr. Michael Wong is one of fewer than 300 board-certified veterinary neurologists in North America. He graduated magna cum laude from the University of Florida (UF) College of Veterinary Medicine, and while there, he founded the UF Veterinary Business Management Association. He went on to complete a medical and surgical internship at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital in Tinton Falls, New Jersey. He subsequently received his neurology and neurosurgery training at North Florida Neurology.
After completion of his residency, he successfully passed his neurology certifying examination and became board-certified in veterinary neurology the same year. He was one of the first veterinary neurologists to complete the Advanced Neurosurgical Certification. He founded Southeast Veterinary Neurology (SEVN) in 2010.
SEVN is South Florida’s leader in veterinary neurology, neurosurgery, and advanced imaging. SEVN specializes in diseases of the brain, spinal cord, and neuromuscular system, including seizures, paralysis and hind limb weakness, balance disorders, neck, or back pain, and weakness.
Dr. Wong has lectured at the local, state and national level and has instructed veterinary students at the UF. He has published articles on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), new treatments for encephalitis and new treatments for brain tumors. He enjoys all aspects of neurology, but his passions include spinal surgery, seizure management, management of encephalitis and MRI in the diagnosis of neurological disease.
In 2014, Dr. Wong was featured on several local news stations in Miami for helping a paralyzed dachshund with a free surgery. You can find more information about this “Christmas Gift” to a wonderful family here:
