What is neuromonitoring?


Neuromonitoring is the procedure of evaluating your neurological pathways during surgery. It is a safety net for your spinal cord and nerves. We continuously monitor your spinal cord and the nerve pathways to decrease the risk of surgery.



 

How do we do this?


Electrodes are placed along the nerve pathways that have the potential for risk during your surgery. In the operating room the electrodes are then linked to a computer for monitoring. For more details click here "The Day of Surgery" of what to expect.



 

Who Performs the Monitoring?


There are two main people who will be looking after you. 1) A board certified or eligible technologists and 2) a doctor specially trained in intra-operative neurodiagnostics. This "Reading" physician oversees the surgery via real time monitoring over the internet. It's like having the doctor in the room.

The technologist is in constant communication with the doctor, your surgeon, anesthesia and OR staff through out the case.



 

Is there a cost to you?


Neuromonitoring is covered by most insurance plans. Like most diagnostic test, x-ray, lab and MRI bills you will probably receive an explanation of benefits (EOB) from your insurance company. Each insurance is unique to each patient, if you have any questions please feel free to contact our billing specialist at (281) 970 - 5900 or click here to contact us through this website.
