At EPIOM in San Antonio, our goal through neuromonitoring is to help increase the outcomes of our patients when they undergo surgery that may impact the functional integrity of the brain, brainstem, spinal cord, or peripheral and cranial nerves.  Neuromonitoring allows our team to alert the surgeon, anaesthesiologist, or other members of the surgical team of impending injury while our clients are in the operating room so that we can help prevent permanent damage.  Neuromonitoring from EPIOM in San Antonio can also be used to map specific areas of our patient’s nervous system so that we can help guide procedural management.

Intra Operative Neuro Monitoring

To put this in terms that everyone can understand, Neuromonitoring is quickly becoming the replacement to intraoperative wake-up testing that occurs during spinal surgeries and brain surgeries.  It is also commonplace any time a surgery may impact the nervous system. Neuromonitoring includes recording spontaneous activity, as well as evoked responses to stimulus.  Often, there are many techniques that are used together in an operating room to ensure that a patient has favorable outcomes, including IONM neuromonitoring.

At EPIOM, our professional and skilled staff works alongside the surgical team and anaesthesiologists in the operating room to ensure successful patient outcomes.  We use state-of-the-art technology and software to help keep our patients safe.  If you’re interested in learning more, feel free to browse our website for more information.
