Lawrence R. Wierzbowski AuD DABNM FASNM
Dr. Wierzbowski is a neurophysiologist (in the Operating Room) for over 25 years with several published peer reviewed articles and has contributed to book chapters on IONM. Back in the early 1990’s, he was one of the three original pioneering members of Surgical Monitoring Associates in Philadelphia. He was the chair of the Webinar committee for the American Society of Neurophysiologic Monitoring for its initial three years and is now serving a second term on the ASNM Board. He has presented several research investigations at ASNM meetings. He is an invited speaker multiple times for many organizations including ASNM, CSET, SSET, Overlook and The Society for Neuroscience and Anesthesia in Critical Care. Last fall he lectured on ABR at the World Congress of Anesthesiologists in Hong Kong. In the past, he presented a three-day monitoring seminar for the Sociedad Mexicana De Neurofisiologia Clinica, A.C. in Mexico. He earned both the DABNM and BCS-IOM board certifications for IONM and was awarded a Fellowship in ASNM for his research and service to the profession.
Larry’s Lecture: The advances in intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring (IONM) over the past several decades have been impressive and have been driven by both clinical and basic science research. However, the primacy of IONM research, technology development and clinical use is being challenged. Specifically, surgeons, insurers, and policymakers have started to question the clinical utility of IONM. Our field is flooded with literature that seemingly have conflicting results; consequently, it can be difficult to make sense of it all. Join Dr. Lawrence Wierzbowski and examine how Evidence Based Research and extrinsic factors impact the “State of IONM Literature.”
