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.

Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM) for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

December 07, 2020

Our connection to the world around us exists in a delicate bundle of nerves sheathed by a protective column of bone. The canal that guards this communication superhighway channel it down the length of the back, feeding and receiving information to and from every corner of our bodies. What happens when this continuum of densely packed nerves is disrupted, when the channel that houses our spinal cord and is designed to protect it, is the same thing that obstructs it?

Intraoperative Neuromonitoring and posterior spinal fusion

December 07, 2020

Motor vehicle accidents can be traumatizing life-altering events that leave your body in shambles. In 2018 alone, there were over 33,000 fatal motor vehicle crashes in the US. Pair this level of devastation with pre-existing conditions and it spells a recipe for disaster. For those with an existing physical ailment such as back problems, the consequences of such an incident can be catastrophic.
