IONM provides valuable information about your nerve function during high-risk surgery. Surgeons observe your nervous system during surgery and see a clear picture of how it is working. If there is a sign of potential injury, then the surgeon can respond quickly to stop or reduce possible injury. IONM helps protect patients by improving efficiency and reducing risk.
Intraoperative Monitoring is a real-time secure and HIPAA-compliant testing and analysis of the nervous system during various surgical procedures.
The main purpose of this specialized monitoring is to not only provide you with the most advanced care but also to assist the surgeon in identifying events during the surgical procedure that may compromise the normal function of the nervous system and thereby avoid a neurological deficit.
Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring (IONM) is a monitoring technique that utilizes specific modalities to evaluate the brain or spinal cord moment-to-moment during operations on or near these structures. These techniques record electrical potentials which allow the surgeons to assess nerve function during your surgical procedure in “real-time”. With this knowledge of the current state of the nervous system, surgeons can be alerted of possible injuries and the necessary steps can be taken to reduce the risk of neurological deficits.
During the surgical procedure, the neuromonitorist is present in the operating room acquiring data and is also remotely monitored and supervised by one of Bromedicon’s neurologists
The clinical staff at Bromedicon is comprised of neurologists and neurophysiologists overseen by the Chief Medical Officer, a Diplomate of the American Board of Neurophysiologic Monitoring (ABNM).
Our mission is that we put your safety, as a patient, first and your care will always adhere to the highest standards of medical practice.
Depending on your insurance, your insurance provider may pay for part of the costs associated with Intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) and you may be responsible for the remaining amount. Please check with your insurance provider for specific coverage provided in your plan.
Typically, on the day of your surgery, a Bromedicon, Inc. technician will meet with you to take your medical history and examine the function of your nervous system. Electrodes are then attached to your body to record changes in your nervous system for the area of your body that is being operated on.
The main purpose of this specialized monitoring is to not only provide you with the most advanced care, but also to assist the surgeon in identifying events during the surgical procedure that may compromise the normal function of the nervous system and thereby avoid a neurological deficit.
