• SAFE SPINE SURGERY AT SBJH: We are proud to introduce the SAFE SPINE SURGERY here at Soundarapandian Bone and Joint Hospital. We will be using a technique to monitor the nerves of the body while performing all spine surgery, which will prevent nerve damage during surgery. This new technique is called Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM), which requires a qualified technician and advanced monitors to visualize and monitor the nervous system through out your surgery. This will reduce the risk of nerve damage to the nerves to almost negligible, which allows the patient to recover early and almost nullifies the chances of nerve damage. There is no need to be afraid to undergo Spine Surgery anymore. Leave the care to us.
