Surgimon pioneered the development of neuromonitoring to reduce patient risk during surgery. Today, neuromonitoring is widely adopted. Our experience spans every type of surgical facility and applicable procedure. Our reputation is defined by our exceptional people. Working with surgeons, hospitals, and patients across the country, we continue to develop effective, quality neuromonitoring solutions.
Performance in healthcare is measured by patient outcomes and hospital efficiency. At Surgimon, we believe that relentless aspiration for performance improvement defines our ability to make a difference. We evaluate our contribution to hospital efficiency by surgeon satisfaction, operating room time reduction, and cost savings. But above all else is patient safety, which is why Surgimon sustains its quality assurance plan in accordance with its accreditation by the The Joint Commission.
