There are many things we find important to the world of healthcare and neuromonitoring. Here we post helpful information for our patients, hospitals, and surgeons.

Neuromonitoring and Lumbar tumor resection with stabilization using pedicle screws

December 07, 2020

Benign or malignant, the word tumor elicits fear in even the most tenacious of hearts. Due to its association with cancer, tumors are notoriously known for the specific danger they can entail for anyone unlucky enough to come into their sights. Even benign tumors, while not cancerous, can have life-threatening complications. A tumor on the spinal cord, for example, can lead to serious pain, spinal instability, and even vertebral fractures. They affect neurological function by pushing on the spinal cord or nerve root and can result in permanent disabilities. Spinal tumors can change their lives forever.

Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM) for Geriatric Patients

October 05, 2020

Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM) provides surgical teams with the necessary resources to provide a patient care level that otherwise would not be possible. IONM uses sensors placed on the patient's body to monitor the body's neural network's functional integrity. Information provided using this technique allows the surgeon to provide a safer and more controlled surgery, which is crucial to maintaining their quality of life post-surgery in the case of geriatric surgeries.
