Dr. Hodaie completed her Neurosurgery residency and fellowship in Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery at the University of Toronto. Her field of clinical expertise and research interest include neuromodulation for the treatment of movement disorders and pain, surgical treatment of trigeminal neuralgia and Gamma Knife radiosurgery. She is currently an Associate Professor of Surgery and the surgical co-director of the Joey and Toby Tanenbaum Gamma Knife Radiosurgery unit at the Toronto Western Hospital. Dr. Hodaie is also affiliated with the Institute of Medical Science, Faculty of Medicine, as an associate member. She has an active research lab focusing on the role of structural MRI techniques such as cortical thickness analysis and diffusion tensor imaging/tractography. Current lab projects explore methods in which these imaging techniques can pinpoint key neuroanatomical signatures in different pain syndromes, and their utility as imaging adjuncts in surgical diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Hodaie also has a strong interest in international neuroscience and neurosurgical education. She has pioneered and enlisted international collaboration in the application of new educational tools in the field of neurosurgical education in the developing world, focusing on structured online course modules in neurosurgery.
