Why Use IONM?

It’s the Standard of Excellence in High-Risk Surgery

Intraoperative monitoring has assisted surgeons and helped to protect patients for more than 17 years.

IONM clinicians support your team with vital statistics and alerts throughout the procedure. Being aware of changes in the spinal cord and nerve structures during high-risk, invasive procedures enables your surgical team to quickly modify the procedure during critical moments and minimizes permanent post-operative damage.

IONM evaluates your patient’s neural status with specialized electrophysiological tests including:

  • somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs)
  • motor evoked potentials (MEPs)
  • brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAERs)
  • electroencephalograms (EEGs)
  • electromyography (EMGs)

The neuromonitoring clinicians at the Head and Spine Institute are highly-specialized in surgery-specific intraoperative monitoring, which means your IONM partner is in sync with both your team and your patient.
