What we offer
We provide evaluation and treatment of children with a range of neurosurgical disorders:

- Chiari malformation
- Cranial malformations and spinal deformities
- Craniofacial anomalies
Our surgeons work as part of a multidisciplinary team, offering a range of specialized expertise that can only be found at a hospital dedicated solely to children, including:
Randall Children's Hospital patients with certain brain conditions may need treatment with Gamma Knife, a state-of-the-art option for treating brain tumors, vascular malformations and other conditions. An alternative or addition to surgery, Gamma Knife uses precise radiation to treat tumors, not harming the healthy areas around the tumor. Children receive this treatment on the Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center campus.
Treatment is under the guidance of Andrew Kee, M.D., a specialist in radiation oncology and the Gamma Knife. Dr. Kee frequently treats children with radiation therapy. Staff members from Randall Children's Hospital travel with children to the treatment to provide any support the child needs.
Monica Wehby, M.D., medical director of pediatric neurosurgery, is board-certified by the American Association of Neurologic Surgeons and the American Board of Pediatric Neurosurgeons. Dr. Wehby was awarded the congressional medal of distinction for improving children's health.
