BIO

Dr. Hardaway is an active researcher with participation in multiple studies in her field. She has also authored numerous professional papers, posters, and abstracts on such topics including Trigeminal Neuralgia, Deep Brain Stimulation, and neurosurgical treatment of chronic pain disorders.

Dr. Hardaway has received recognition for her academic achievements over the course of her studies and continues to be active in continuing education to ensure her patients have access to the latest advances and knowledge in neurosurgery. While she practices a broad range of neurosurgical procedures on patients with many conditions, she focuses her practice on spine surgeries, brain mapping for tumors and epilepsy, and the treatment of pain disorders including facial pain and chronic back and leg pain.

She is a member of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, Congress of Neurological Surgeons, and the North American Neuromodulation Society.
