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 Advanced Surgical Breast Oncology Training Program and an Oncology Research Fellowship. Today, Dr. Baerman frequently performs biopsies, breast conservation and oncoplastic surgery, mastectomies and sentinel lymph node biopsies.

Dr. Baerman coordinates a multi-disciplinary team approach for comprehensive cancer care to ensure customized care and optimum outcomes for each individual patient.

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

• Abdominal surgery – for diseases of the 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, 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) viola and violin. She takes great interest in chamber music, has played with multiple orchestras, and is a former instructor of music at UNC-Chapel Hill and Duke Music Departments.

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