The decision to include neuromonitoring during a patient’s surgery is at the discretion of the surgeon. Those surgeons who choose to include neuromonitoring as an adjunct to their surgical intervention do so based on the incidence and/or impact iatrogenic injury may have on their patients’ outcome. Our goal at Neurodynamics, Inc. is to be included as a part of the surgical team in an effort to help the surgeon proceed with the confidence that his or her patient is receiving the best surgical care.
What is Neuromonitoring?
The scientific practice of Neurophysiological Intraoperative Monitoring aims to reduce the risk to patients of iatrogenic damage to the nervous system and/or provide functional guide to the surgeon. To accomplish this, a specially trained member of our team acquires data and provides immediate feedback to the surgeon regarding electro physiologic signals from the patient as their surgery proceeds. Patients who benefit from neuromonitoring are those undergoing surgeries that involve the brain, spinal cord or nerves that may be at risk. Neuromonitoring is also known as surgical neurophysiology, intraoperative neurologic monitoring, or simply intraoperative monitoring. Acronyms include IOM, IONM and NIOM.
