Nationwide Chidren's Hospital Neurologists Author Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring Book

November 19, 2010

A new book entitled “Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring” has been published by Cambridge University Press, co-authored by Nationwide Children’s Hospital Pediatric Neurologists Gloria M. Galloway, MD, and Khaled M. Zamel, MD; Marc R. Nuwer, MD, of UCLA; and Jaime R. Lopez, MD of Stanford University.   
 
The publisher describes the book as a “comprehensive guide to the current practice of intraoperative neurophysiology with chapters on various modalities and clinical uses, anesthesia, operating room environment, special considerations in pediatrics and the interpretation and reporting of neurophysiologic data.”  
 
Because it is imperative that those performing and interpreting intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring are properly trained, the book was designed to be useful to trainees as well as neurophysiologists already in practice.
 
Galloway is director of the Evoked Potential Monitoring Program at Nationwide Children's and a professor of Clinical Neurology and Clinical Pediatrics at The Ohio State University College of Medicine.  Her interests are in clinical neuromuscular disease, electromyography and clinical neurophysiology.  Zamel is an attending physician at Nationwide Children's and an assistant professor of Clinical Pediatrics and Clinical Neurology at The Ohio State University College of Medicine.  He has clinical and research interest in epilepsy, intraoperative monitoring and pediatric stroke.  
 
Galloway and Zamel are part of a team of 20 neurologists, all of whom have subspecialty training in areas such as epilepsy, sleep medicine, neuromuscular disorders, stroke, pseudotumor cerebri, headache, neurodevelopmental disabilities and more.  The Neurosciences Center at Nationwide Children's Hospital includes leading clinicians and researchers in neurology and neuromuscular disease, neurosurgery, neurodiagnostics, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and sleep medicine. Specialized services include a pediatric stroke and vascular anomalies clinic, neuromuscular disease clinic, comprehensive epilepsy program, and the nation’s first pediatric pseudotumor cerebri clinic. Additional areas of clinical focus include neurodevelopmental disabilities, spinal muscular atrophy, tuberous sclerosis and Batten disease. Affiliated with The Ohio State University and The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital, members of the Neurosciences Center pursue research into subjects such as pediatric stroke, brain tumors, and gene replacement therapy for muscular dystrophy patients.
