Intra-operative neuromonitoring for spinal cord stimulation has been growing tremendously over the last few years. This is secondary to multiple factors:

  • a significant growth in the neuromodulation space given newer technologies and a doubling of the companies involved
  • more surgeons becoming involved in the space
  • an expansion of the use of IONM with pain physicians

The use of IONM for neuromodulation is not only used as a modality for safety, but is also used as a confirmation of lead placement with spinal cord stimulators. It is this factor that is most important given the need to have a marker of proper lead position in an asleep patient. Newer protocols have also determined methods of lead placement with DRG stimulators. Newer research has examined the spinal and cortical responses of various programming waveforms, and has given an ability to have human spinal recording data.
