Monica Wehby, MD

Dr. Monica Wehby, a University of Notre Dame alumni, obtained her medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. After completing her residency in neurosurgery at the University of California, Los Angeles, she went on to complete a fellowship in pediatric neurosurgery at Primary Children’s Hospital at the University of Utah. Dr. Wehby began her pediatric neurosurgical career in Portland, Oregon as a partner at Microneurosurgical Consultants, P.C., while also serving as the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel, where she later transitioned to full-time staff. A native of Nashville, Tennessee, Dr. Wehby has returned home to join Goodman Campbell Brain and Spine.

Dr. Wehby is board certified by both the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and the American Board of Pediatric Neurological Surgery. She has held numerous leadership and board positions at the local, state and national level, including Trustee of the American Medical Association, Northwest Regional Director of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, President of both the Oregon Medical Association and the Medical Society of Metropolitan Portland, Board member of Ronald McDonald House Charities and the Republican Nominee for US Senate from Oregon. Dr. Wehby is frequently voted a “Top Doctor” by her peers in both local and national publications.

Dr. Wehby is internationally recognized for her expertise in spina bifida and tethered cord. She is experienced in and enjoys all aspects of pediatric neurosurgery, with particular clinical interest in craniofacial reconstruction, hydrocephalus, congenital anomalies, neonatal surgery, and child abuse.

Dr. Wehby states “Being a scientist and extrovert, medicine was a natural career choice for me; if we are not here to make life better for one another, then what’s the point? I was drawn to the specialty of pediatric neurosurgery because of the intricate and critical nature of the work, as well as the opportunity to use my artistic skills with craniofacial reconstructions. I believe there is no greater honor than when a parent hands their child over to me before surgery and says, ‘Dr. Wehby, take care of my baby.’ I am blessed to love what I do everyday.”
