Range of services
Intra-operative Spinal Cord Monitoring (SCM)
Sensory Evoked Potentials (SEPs)
Motor Evoked Potentials (MEPs)
SCM is utilised for most surgical spinal procedures including: anterior release (+/- instrumentation), posterior fusion, ALIF/PLIF/TLIF, cervical surgery, fracture fixation, vertebrectomy, osteotomy.
These techniques act as an early warning system to detect spinal cord compromise during surgery, helping the surgical team prevent or minimise iatrogenic damage.
