Intraoperative Spinal Cord Monitoring ( IOM ) provides real-time feedback during complex surgery through the use of electrophysiological methods.
Intraoperative Spinal Cord Monitoring provides monitoring of sensory and motor pathways during corrective spinal surgery, which can detect neural injury at a reversible stage. This provides a possible opportunity for intervention improving patient outcomes. MediServices provides a range of solutions for spinal monitoring which include outsourcing options or “spot buy” services to support neurophysiology departments.
Solutions for all surgery including:
- Vertebral Column Surgery
- Spinal Cord Surgery
- Lumbosacral Surgery
- Tethered Cord Surgery
- Cortical Mapping
Full range of protocols
We offer a full range of Intraoperative Spinal Cord Monitoring ( IOM ) protocols and meet standards set by the British Society of Neurophysiology (BSCN). Range of monitoring may include :
- Spontaneous (free-run) EMG
- Triggered EMG
- Motor Evoked Potentials (MEPS)
- Somatosensory Evoked Potentials (SSEPS)

MediServices is capable and reliable. It has the ability to interpret trends in monitoring. This has been inclusive of very difficult cases including an acute thoracic pedicle subtraction osteotomy with neurological deficit.
The clear communication delivered altered the order in which The surgery was performed. The clinical outcome was excellent.
