Second Annual Intraoperative Neuromonitoring Symposium - VIRTUAL EXHIBIT REGISTRATION

October 7, 2022


Presented by the Houston Methodist Neurological Institute and SpecialtyCare

Neurophysiological intraoperative neuromonitoring is frequently used to help identify nervous system pathways at risk for injury during a wide range of surgical procedures. The objective of this program is to understand the methodologies and practice of neuromonitoring from the perspective of the surgeon, neurophysiologist, technologist, anesthesiologists and nurses. This program will provide education regarding the various aspects of neuromonitoring including basic technical issues, interpretation and medicolegal aspects. We will discuss the ways institutions can collaborate with national companies to provide high quality services.
