Nevan Baldwin, MD, FAANS, is an associate professor of neurosurgery at UVA. He attended the State University of New York at Buffalo for his undergraduate and medical degrees, then came to Virginia for his residency in neurological surgery at Virginia Commonwealth University. He completed a fellowship in reconstructive spinal surgery and spinal cord injury medicine at the University of New Mexico. After fellowship training, he served on the academic faculty at the University of New Mexico until moving to Texas in 2001.
Dr. Baldwin came to UVA from Covenant Medical Center in Texas, where he was chief of the division of neurosurgery and a clinical associate professor at Texas Tech University School of Medicine. He has been a researcher in the development of total (artificial) disc replacement. He has strong clinical interests in spine surgery for geriatric patients and in revision surgery for those who have undergone prior interventions. He incorporates his interests in minimally invasive spinal surgery into treatment plans for those complex spinal conditions.
Dr. Baldwin is a fellow of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and a member of numerous regional, national and international professional organizations, including the AANS/CNS Joint Section on Disorders of the Spine and Peripheral Nerves. Outside of work, he enjoys metal art and welding, gourmet cooking, water sports, fishing and hunting.
