WESTCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 5, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Neuro Alert, a Westchester N.Y.-based healthcare organization providing neuromonitoring services for surgeons and hospitals, has proudly announced the completion of shooting their new educational TV Show for Public Access TV and other TV networks across the New York Metropolitan area. The show will start airing around November 15, 2013 on various stations.

The 30 minute program about Intraoperative Neurophysiological Neuromonitoring (IONM) serves as a valuable guide to surgeons of all specialties, providing them with essential insights into this simple yet crucial technical procedure designed to protect patients and ensure safety during complex medical operations.

The TV Show produced by Long Island-based Multi-Media Group, took place at White Plains Cable, White Plains, N.Y. William (Bill) Boggs, an Emmy®-winning TV producer and journalist, conducted extensive interviews with surgeons and technicians who stressed the significance of real-time monitoring and shared their experience with this cost-effective and risk-minimizing tool.

"The program is interesting, informative and inspirational, reminding patients, surgeons and hospital administrators about the availability of sophisticated and rapidly-evolving technology," says Dr. T.V. Seshan, a founder and clinical director of Neuro Alert, who is also board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. "Fortunately, the latest technological equipment and software programs have the power to influence patient outcomes and prevent potential problems, accidents and injuries during surgery. We are glad that we are in a position to raise awareness of IONM and explain why so many people might benefit from this procedure."

The panel of experts, interviewed by Mr. Boggs, included the aforementioned Dr. T.V. Seshan, Dr. Ezriel Kornel (a brain and spine surgeon and assistant clinical professor of Neurosurgery at Weill-Cornell Medical College), Rose Auerbach B.S., CNIM (a certified neurophysiology technologist), and Dr. Joseph Annichiarico (board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation).

Intraoperative Neuromonitoring is the use of electrophysiological signals to monitor the functional integrity of nerves, spinal cord and parts of the brain during surgery. The purpose of monitoring is to reduce the risk of potential damage to the nervous system and enable surgical teams to take corrective action, if necessary. This technique has evolved during the last two decades and continues to gain momentum in the medical field.
