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 extremely 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 different conditions, she focuses her practice on epilepsy surgery, brain mapping for tumors and epilepsy, and the treatment of pain disorders, chronic pain, and movement disorders. She is a member of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, Congress of Neurological Surgeons, and the North American Neuromodulation Society.
Care Philosophy

I work with a network of doctors who work to find individualized treatment plans for each patient using a multidisciplinary approach. I offer a wide variety of treatment options and strive to find long-term solutions using the most current and evidence-based treatment options available today in conjunction with the patient’s wishes.
