Mark E. Baker, II, MD
Residency: Phoenix Children’s/Valleywise Medical Center
Medical School: University of Texas Southwestern
Bio: Mark grew up as the second oldest of 10 kids in Pocatello, Idaho, where there is never a dull moment! When he is not working, he enjoys hiking, running, playing the piano, and most especially, spending time with his wife Danielle! They are the proud dog parents of a multipool named Floyd, and love take him on walks, hikes in the San Bernardino Mountains, and any beach they can visit! Mark’s original inspiration for pursuing neonatology was his niece Evelyn, who was born at 33 weeks with SVT episodes (but is now a completely healthy 7-year old girl).
Research: Using vagal nerve simulation (VNS) to reduce the incidence and severity of NEC in the neonatal population.
