About Me

Dr. Margaret Baker loves helping people feel more comfortable in the highly specialized environment of Neurosurgery. It’s her mission to help her patients understand what’s going on with their bodies, to determine if surgery is in their best interest, and if so, to help them become the best possible surgical candidate they can be to ensure the best possible outcome.

Other Interests: 

Volunteering in Haiti has deepened Dr. Baker's practice as a clinician and given her a greater appreciation for the resources and technology that is available to physicians in the U.S.
