An overview of the intraoperative neuromonitoring market in the US
The market research analyst expects the intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) market in the US to grow at a CARG of over 9% during the forecast period. IONM, which is a combination of surgical medicine and neuroscience, is one of the fastest-growing areas in the US. Many start-up companies started offering neuromonitoring services to surgeons, and hospitals for orthopaedic, neurosurgery, spine and vascular surgeries in the US. Companies such as Medtronic, Natus, and NuVasive provide advanced intraoperative neuromonitoring devices to service providers and hospitals.
IONM systems are used to monitor the central nervous system (CNS) and alert the surgeons before an individual reaches the threshold for injury, hence they play a vital role by emphasizing the safety of the patient. This focus on patient safety is one of the major factors contributing to the growth of the market. These systems also play a crucial role during serious surgeries such as spinal surgeries that involve the insertion of instruments near the nerves or the spinal area and may cause damage to the CNS.
