Biography

Dr. Baumhauer sees patients of all ages and lifestyles. Her treatment goals are to decrease pain and improve function through surgical and non-surgical options for her patients. Her clinical practice includes arthritis, painful flatfoot, foot reconstruction, diabetic foot and ankle problems, and ankle replacement.

Dr. Baumhauer earned her medical degree at the University of Vermont College of Medicine and then completed a residency in orthopaedic surgery at the Medical Center Hospital there. She also completed a fellowship in foot and ankle surgery at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Dr. Baumhauer directs the URMC Orthopaedics Foot and Ankle Institute, a joint venture in clinical care and research with the Ithaca College Department of Physical Therapy. She is an author on many medical articles on topics such as the diabetic foot and foot and ankle biomechanics. In 2008, Dr. Baumhauer was elected the first woman president of the Eastern Orthopaedic Association. She is a board certified orthopaedic surgeon, the Associate Chair of Academic Affairs for URMC's Department of Orthopaedics, and a Professor of Orthopaedics.
