Avoiding Spinal Cord Injuries During Surgery

Recent medical studies show that spinal cord monitoring during spinal surgery and aorta repair surgery can prevent some avoidable spinal cord injuries from those surgeries, such as paraplegia and quadriplegia.  Monitoring is done using equipment, similar to an EEG, that monitors changes in sensory and electrical impulses that herald spinal cord compromise.  Once alerted to impending problems, physicians can take steps to avert permanent neurologic damage.

A common type of medical negligence arises out of physicians’ failure to take proper precautions during a surgery to fully protect their patient from harm.
