About Shelley Ann Flecky, PA-C

Shelley Flecky, PA-C has been a licensed and nationally certified Physician Assistant since the completion of her master's program at Midwestern University in 2008. She began her career with several years in pediatric ophthalmology and then joined the PCH Neurosurgery team in 2014. She has trained in the inpatient, outpatient, and surgical setting. Shelley provides care for our patients in all settings as well as off-site at the satellite clinics. Her clinics cover a wide spectrum of diagnoses for new and established patients including hydrocephalus, Chiari malformation, tethered cord, spina bifida, abnormal head shapes, torticollis, macrocephaly, arachnoid cysts, head and neck injuries, and post-operative care. She performs procedures such as shunt reprogramming and intrathecal baclofen pump refills in office as well as in the hospital setting. Shelley has a special interest in movement disorders, tone management, and evaluation of patients after botulinum injections. As part of the Neurosurgery Advanced Practice Provider team, she works independently as well as collaboratively with our neurosurgeons, therapists, social workers, and teams of multidisciplinary specialists. Shelley is dedicated to giving the best care, and her favorite part about working with children is watching them grow knowing she had a positive impact in their lives.

Shelley is an Arizona native who loves the great outdoors, traveling, and has always had a family-centered approach to life. She completed her BS in Biology as well as a minor in Family and Human Development at Arizona State University. She is active in the community and is currently in her own children's classes leading lessons in Junior Achievement, an organization empowering children with financial literacy, work-readiness, and entrepreneurship training. She also participates in Art Masterpiece teaching lessons which allow students to explore art history through a hands-on interactive setting.

Shelley maintains her certification as a Physician Assistant with hours of Continuing Medical Education, Basic and Pediatric Advanced Life Support training, and attending conferences for the professional organizations she is a part of including American Association of Neurological Surgeons, Intrathecal Baclofen Network, Congress of Neurological Surgeons, and the American Academy of Physician Assistants.
