Benefits of IONM Services
How Medsurant Monitoring Benefits Your Surgical Team
Hospitals know that our experience in intraoperative monitoring allows us to easily adapt to all neurosurgery procedures. Our professional staff members are required to complete a fellowship in IONM and will provide independent clinical services only after they have successfully passed all steps in training. During the training period, neurophysiologists are exposed to many different hospital operating room settings and are required to assist with neurological surgical procedures of varying complexity.
Candidates for employment at Medsurant Monitoring hold advanced degrees and undergo a detailed evaluation process. Our neurophysiologists are board-certified, and are fully compliant with HIPAA and ID theft regulations. Our professional staff also adheres to standard hospital policies and procedures, including proper operating room protocol and sterilization techniques.
Surgeons have an equal level of comfort with our experience, knowing that Medsurant Monitoring continually demonstrates the highest standard for patient care and success in our partnerships. Our neurophysiologists are highly trained and qualified to handle the most complex monitoring and intricate surgical procedures. Their high level of education, training, and experience allows for seamless integration in the decision making processes of the operating room environment.
Medsurant Monitoring values and supports continuing education, allowing our clinical personnel to keep current with the latest technologies and monitoring models. We use state-of-art equipment to perform multi-modality monitoring that is tailored to meet the individual needs of the surgeon and procedure to be performed.
While the neurophysiologist in the operating room is best-suited to make critical decisions as a first-hand observer, some insurance carriers require remote oversight by a physician. Medsurant Monitoring maintains a collaborative relationship with supervising physicians should the need for remote oversight arise. Real-time data interpretation and continuous communication between our local and remote clinicians ensure rapid feedback during the most vital stages of neurosurgery procedures.
Our relationships with hospitals and surgeons are a key component to our success. We value professionalism, honesty, integrity, and treating others in a manner befitting highly respected healthcare providers.
Standard of Care
IONM is recognized as a standard of care during medical procedures which place a patient’s neurological system at risk. IONM assists in identifying and preventing iatrogenic damage to delicate neural structures by utilizing a variety of monitoring techniques. Our neurophysiologists provide timely alerts to the surgical team and communicate the status of neural structures effectively. Continually evolving, IONM is utilized in a growing number of neurosurgical, orthopedic and cardio-neurovascular procedures.
