Enhancing Surgical Safety with Intra-Operative Nerve Monitoring

IBS Hospital introduces Intra-operative Nerve Monitoring, a sophisticated technology ensuring the safety of neural structures during surgery. This advanced method enhances surgical precision, minimizes nerve damage risk, and optimizes patient outcomes, marking a significant advancement in neurosurgical and spinal procedures.

What is Intra-operative Nerve Monitoring (IONM)?

Intra-operative Nerve Monitoring (IONM) is a sophisticated surgical procedure that has revolutionized neurosurgery and other surgical disciplines. This cutting-edge technology enables surgeons to monitor the functional integrity of nerves in real time during surgical procedures, providing crucial information to enhance surgical precision and reduce the risk of nerve damage. The fundamental purpose of IONM is to prevent or minimize nerve injury. Nerves, fragile structures that transfer electrical messages between the brain and various body regions, can cause functional deficiencies if damaged, including loss of vision, sensation, muscle weakness, or paralysis. IONM significantly improves patient outcomes and safety in complex procedures by aiding  surgeons in identifying, preserving, and ensuring nerve integrity is not compromised during surgery.

In which surgical fields is IONM commonly utilized?

IONM is widely used in various surgical fields, including:

Protection of crucial nerves responsible for motor function, sensory perception, and autonomic control during brain and spinal cord surgeries.

Preservation of the recurrent laryngeal nerves, which are essential for vocal cord function and voice production, in procedures such as thyroidectomy, parotidectomy, or vocal cord surgery.

Protection of the spinal cord and peripheral nerves during spine procedures, thereby reducing the risk of paralysis and other neurological complications.


Enhanced Surgical Precision: IONM provides the surgical team with real-time feedback, enabling them to precisely locate;and protect nerves from unintended harm. Surgeons can adjust their approach based on the monitoring systems data,ensuring accurate surgical maneuvers.

Nerve Identification in Complex Anatomy: IONM assists in identifying nerves within complicated anatomical structures,allowing surgeons to distinguish them from surrounding tissues and structures. This is particularly crucial when nerves are not immediately visible during surgery.

Early Detection of Nerve Dysfunction: IONM quickly detects changes in nerve function. By continuously monitoring nerve signals, any potential injury or compromise can be identified early, allowing for prompt intervention to prevent irreversible damage.

Reduced Postoperative Consequences: Since IONM preserves nerve integrity, it minimizes the likelihood of postoperative issues such as paralysis, loss of sensation, or altered motor function. Patients thus benefit from improved surgical outcomes, faster recovery, and a higher quality of life.

IBS Hospital Empowers Your Treatment with Cutting-edge Technology

We continuously incorporate cutting-edge technologies from around the world into our offerings, such as a surgical system that allows for precise and confident complex procedures. We use magnetic stimulation to treat certain neurological conditions and create personalised brain maps for tailored treatment plans. Nerve monitoring during surgeries ensures the nervous system is not compromised, and a robotic exoskeleton aids in mobility issues. Our goal at IBS Hospital is to provide the best care possible, utilising the latest and most innovative technologies available.
