Meet the Intraoperative Neuromonitoring Faculty
Intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) is a fast-growing and exciting field in clinical neurophysiology. IONM has been used for approximately 20 years to enhance patient safety and care providing a significant positive impact on outcomes. Neuro-monitoring and neuro-mapping can prevent post-operative neurological deficit of the brain, brainstem, spinal cord, cranial and peripheral nerves. We relay the information from our data collection in real time to the surgical team during a variety of surgical procedures. Or team works closely with members of the Neurology, Neurosurgery, Vascular Surgery, Orthopedic Surgery and Anesthesia Departments.
Our physicians are all board-certified neurologists with fellowship training in clinical neurophysiology. Our technologists are specialty trained and all have received their Certification in Neurophysiological Intraoperative Monitoring (CNIM) from the American Board of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologists.
The Intraoperative Neurophysiology Monitoring (IONM) team at Henry Ford Health is a growing team of neurologists and intraoperative neuro-monitorists with many years of IONM experience, who provide live feedback of the integrity of the nervous system at risk. We are present during any surgery in which there lies a high risk of neurological deficit. The IONM service is committed to improve neurological outcomes after surgery to all our patients within our community.
