Intra Operative Neuro Monitoring
For procedures that place a patient's central nervous system at risk, IONM is essential.
IONM is used to continuously monitor a patient’s central nervous system (brain, nerves, and spinal cord) throughout the duration of a procedure.
In the event of changes in the functioning of the patient’s central nervous system or potential problems, the trained clinician monitoring the IONM tests is able to quickly alert the surgeon in order to help them minimize the damage and risk of neruological complications.
At CCS, we are proud to offer IONM services to hospitals across the country, helping surgeons ensure the safety of patients who are undergoing an operation that places their central nervous system at risk.

What is IONM?
IONM is the process of continuously monitoring a patient’s central nervous system during a procedure, and, depending on the exact procedure, a wide range of different equipment and tests might be used.
The purpose of IONM is to help minimize the potential for injuries to the patient’s central nervous system by alerting the surgeon the moment a problem arises. If the clinician monitoring information from the tests notices anything concerning, they are able to immediately alert the surgeon and other medical staff who can then quickly respond in order to minimize any damage that might have occurred.
At CCS, we are able to provide IONM services to hospitals across the country for both scheduled and emergency operations, helping them keep their patients safe during complicated operations that put the patient’s central nervous system at risk.
