“Quality. Reliability. Expertise. Service Excellence. Delivered 24/7/365. Neuropath. Your Partner for Intraoperative Monitoring.”

“In a research article examining intraoperative SSEP monitoring during 100 cervical spine decompression surgeries, a significant increase in clinical effectiveness was found in the use of neuromonitoring vs. the unmonitored control group. There was a 3.7% incidence of quadriplegia and a 0.5% incidence of death in the unmonitored patients. There was zero incidence of quadriplegia or death in the group that was SSEP monitored.” (Epstein et. al., Journal of Spine Disorders, 1993, 18(6):737-74)
