IOM allows surgeons to know the neurologic status of a patient throughout the surgical procedure. Our neuromonitorists continuously collect data from the nervous system in real time and relay this information to your surgeon.
Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring (IONM) assists surgeons in determining the neurological status of a patient when under anesthesia. Use of IONM can decrease the risk of paralysis and other complications during critical surgical procedures. IONM has become the gold standard in most hospitals that provide neurological, orthopedic, vascular and cardiothoracic surgical services.
Today, IONM is emerging as the gold standard of care for patients undergoing spinal surgery or neurosurgery. Surgeons, the surgical team and hospital administrators all recognize the need for IONM to provide for a safe and positive outcome by identifying and mitigating risks that could lead to post-operative deficits.
