Research and clinical studies have shown that even when the best in class surgeons are operating in and around critically sensitive structures such as the brain, spine, nerves and vasculature, due to complex variables, such as excessive retraction or blood pressure fluctuations, the potential for post-operative damage to neural or vascular structures is a reality. IONM has become a true standard of care for these types of high risk cases, resulting in predictably safer surgical outcomes, while reducing both risk and cost of liability from litigation for facilities and surgeons. An outsourced IONM program can provide meaningful savings to your health care facility by absorbing the ongoing expenses required to recruit and train IONM specialists and providing state of the art equipment.
Wide Breadth of Monitoring Capabilities and Hard to Find Expertise in Complex Cranial Cases
Neuropath has unique expertise and experience in some of the more complex and challenging IONM procedures. While cranial or vascular based IONM procedures typically comprise 5% or fewer of total cases in the market, by virtue of our academic medicine roots, this segment of complex cases comprises over 30% by volume of our annual cases. All of our technologists are competent in the widest array of possible cases. If you have a complex case, it is highly likely that we have performed it on a daily basis. Neuropath is known and highly regarded for supporting these complex cases.
Neuropath reliably performs the full range of IONM procedures including, but not limited to orthopedic, neurosurgical, vascular, otolaryngological, radiological, and cardiothoracic. We utilize the full range of monitoring modalities and internally credential our technologists for different types of complex cases and monitoring modalities. In this vein, we utilize the professional most suited to any particular case.
