Your surgeon has an obligation to provide the highest quality care in the industry to date. In order to ensure you achieve the best possible outcome from your surgical procedure, your surgeon incorporated the use of Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM) to protect your nervous system.
IONM is performed by trained neurophysiologist and board certified neurologists, using advanced equipment that is specifically designed to perform nerve monitoring. Electrodes are strategically placed over nerves and muscles which are linked to our equipment. Through moderate stimulation of these electrodes, the neurophysiologist and surgeon are provided with real-time information ensuring the integrity of your neurological pathways. Your surgeon incorporates this information into his/her decision making process to offer you the best outcomes and recovery.
