Dr. Hardwick-Smith is an associate of the Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation Institute of America, the American Academy of Cosmetic Gynecologists, and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, and was the first gynecologist in Houston to focus on cosmetic gynecology more than 12 years ago when the field was just emerging. She has spoken at national conferences on cosmetic gynecologic topics and her opinions have been published in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, as well as being a co-author of a landmark study published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal. She is an expert in menopausal health and sexuality and has recently completed a large research project regarding this topic, culminating in important book helping women to navigate this new stage of life while remaining vibrant, connected and sexually satisfied. “Sexually Woke” was published in 2020.
