Neuromonitoring is a complex and technically demanding discipline. A part of the modern patient safety movement, IONM can provide insight into the function of the nervous system, a window into potential surgical injuries, and the opportunity for appropriate intervention with the goal of mitigation or elimination of paralysis or damage to a sensitive site.
To achieve these goals, Medsurant provides a full range of neuromonitoring resources. These include a well-trained in-operating suite neuromonitorist, skilled interpretive neuromonitoring oversight, and an administrative structure which understands how to properly support ethical business practices for our partner facility and our patients. Medsurant Health fulfills all of these requirements and more.
Some of the specialized tests, executed by the surgical IONM teams, include motor evoked potentials (MEP), somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEP), brainstem auditory evoked responses (BAER), complex reflex testing, electromyography (EMG), electroencephalography (EEG), and other neuromonitoring modalities. These tests can be used in combination to achieve optimal neural protection and mapping of neural structures in surgical procedures, including but not limited to basic and complex spine, skull base, supra and infratentorial intracranial, peripheral nerve reconstruction, general orthopaedic, complex bone deformity/fracture management, cardiothoracic/aortic, otolaryngology procedures, intensive care long-term non-convulsive seizure monitoring, and neuromodulation cases.
Our organization’s patient-centered focus extends beyond operating rooms and intensive care units.
Our patient-first philosophy carries over into our billing and reimbursement practice where we will work with patients and third party payors to provide as painless of an experience as possible. To this end, we will never balance bill a patient for services that we have delivered. We will always work with patients and insurers while delivering the highest level of neurophysiology care to every patient, regardless of their ability to pay.
Lastly, Medsurant has regional presidents available to you, providing a direct feedback mechanism for your opinions, observations, and operational suggestions. We encourage your feedback so that we can provide you the best neuromonitoring resources available to help further the standard of care.
