It is of great importance to protect the nerves in operations in the head and neck area. While preserving the nerves during surgeries in the past was only dependent on the experience of the physician, today's technology strengthens the physician's hand. "Nerve Monitoring Technology", which is being used at the Near East University Hospital, provides a great advantage for the protection of the vocal cords and facial nerves.
Nerve monitoring technology, which is used especially in thyroid and parotid (salivary gland) surgeries, makes it more visible by stimulating the vocal cords and facial nerves during the operation. Thus, it allows the physician performing the operation to complete the surgery by protecting the vocal cords and facial nerves, minimizing the risk of damage to the vocal cords and losing mimic movements after the surgery.
