Oversight Provided by Neuromonitoring Physicians, LLC

IONM

Intraoperative neuromonitoring utilizes an array of complicated neurophysiological tests to ensure patient safety and multiple neurophysiological societies state that an appropriately trained doctor is expected to interpret those data generated during surgical procedures.  This role is filled by an overseeing board certified Neurologist who interprets these tests in real-time throughout surgical procedures and provides immediate feedback regarding the status of the patient’s nervous system to the surgeon.  This neurologist is in constant communication with the technologist in the OR and is able to communicate with the surgeon at any point.  Continuous, expert physician interpretation allows optimal and timely intervention to ensure the prevention of patient injuries.  

ICU

Our board certified neurologists oversee the interpretation of cEEG in the ICU and provide a detailed report with each 24 hours of monitoring.  For quick patient management they are consulted by the NMT staff when clinical intervention in the ICU is required.  They work directly with the nursing staff, intensivists, physicians and other designated clinical staff for the interpretation of brain function for maximum patient care.

 

Drs. Robert Minahan and Allen Mandir fulfill these roles along with their neurological colleagues while working closely with the technologists of Neuromonitoring Technologies, Inc through their company Neuromonitoring Physicians, LLC.  Drs. Minahan and Mandir are well respected and published in the field of neuromonitoring.  They previously headed the IONM team at Johns Hopkins for over 6 years and have now led the team at Georgetown since 2003.  They have written numerous journal articles and chapters and give multiple lectures each year nationally to other physicians and neuromonitoring practitioners. Importantly, Drs. Minahan and Mandir and colleagues also assist to provide high levels of quality control for NMT and provide all of their oversight in the Baltimore and Washington, DC areas.  They provide the highest standard of neuromonitoring excellence through both interpretation of data and education of technologists.
