Dr. Baerman earned her undergraduate, graduate and medical degrees at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, remaining in the Triangle for her residency at the University of North Carolina Hospitals

She fortified her surgical expertise through an Oncology Research Fellowship. Today, Dr. Baerman frequently performs biopsies, breast conservation and oncoplastic surgery, mastectomies and sentinel lymph node biopsies.

In addition to her expertise in benign and malignant breast disease, her other surgical areas include:

• Abdominal surgery – for diseases of the esophagus, stomach, gallbladder, small bowel, appendix, and large bowel
• Endocrine surgery – for diseases of the adrenal, parathyroid and thyroid glands
• Hernia surgery – for inguinal, femoral, ventral/incisional, diaphragmatic, and other hernias

Throughout her career Dr. Baerman has garnered honors, including her 2013 recognition as a Patients' Choice physician, an award that dignifies her as a doctor who is not only highly regarded, but highly recommended, by her patients. She has published numerous journal articles and given presentations at medical symposia; while in medical school she was Administrative Chief Resident and a Distinguished Medical Scholar.

For fun, Dr. Baerman performs on (and long taught) violin and viola. She takes great interest in chamber music, has played with multiple orchestras, and used to teach for UNC-Chapel Hill.

Dr. Baerman currently treats patients at the Apex, Chapel Hill, Durham, and Southpoint locations of EmergeOrtho, formerly Triangle Orthopaedics. She operates at Duke Regional and North Carolina Specialty Hospitals as well as Davis Ambulatory Surgery Center in Durham, NC.
