Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM) for Scoliosis and Sciatica

By Admin on May 04, 2021

Sciatica pain can be excruciatingly painful. According to Harvard Medical School, "Sciatica is one of the most common, yet misunderstood, types of pain. As many as 40% of people will get it during their life, and it becomes more frequent as you age." The condition's reach to large swaths of humanity makes it a serious issue. In some cases, sciatica can make walking difficult to impossible.

Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM) for Patients With Pre Existing Heart Conditions

By Admin on May 04, 2021

A patient’s medical history is a critical component to providing them with the highest quality care. While the conditions a patient presents are at the forefront of their attention and the medical professional observing them, their preexisting conditions and comorbidities can also play a significant role in diagnosis and treatment. Accurately notating a patient’s history can provide life-saving information, especially when they are set to undergo surgery.

Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM) for Adolescent Brainstem Tumor Surgeries

By Admin on May 04, 2021

Potential complications for brainstem surgeries become even more complicated when the brain is still undergoing development. While much is said about how puberty affects the adolescent body, it also alters their brain chemistry. Changes in hormones that attach to your brain cells change how the brain learns and grows. This shift in hormone balance makes tumor growth on young brains even more terrifying for patients and parents alike, making what we do at Axis Neuromonitoring that much more important.

Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM) for Patients With Preexisting Conditions

March 16, 2021

Spinal surgeries are synonymous with a long list of potential complications. If the surgery doesn't go according to plan, it can mean severe postoperative consequences for patients. Due to the spinal cord's proximity to the spinal column, even slight adjustments in patient positioning during surgery can result in muscle weakness or numbness. So what can be done when surgery needs to be performed, but the risk of doing so is mounting?

Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM) for Patients With A History of Multiple Spinal Surgeries

March 16, 2021

An aging population is creating new challenges for surgeons around the world. Due to the effects of aging, elderly patients face natural degeneration of the structures that make up their spine, resulting in more spinal surgeries. According to the National Institutes of Health, "Low back pain (LBP) has been estimated to have a lifetime prevalence of 60%–80% among the global population, making it one of the most common health complaints." 

Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM) for Patients With Mental Health Conditions

March 16, 2021

Hopelessness can be crippling. Having to endure debilitating physical and emotional conditions only fuels hopelessness further and worsens patients' emotional states. Chronic pain, mental health woes, and disease can strip patients of their will to get better and be an obstacle for seeking help and treatment.
