Objective: The objective of this review is to discuss the utilization of intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IONM) during spinal cord tumor surgery. Discussion: The literature generally supports the use of intraoperative monitoring during surgery for spinal cord lesions. Conclusion: We argue that IONM should be the standard of care for the treatment of such pathology, and a number of issues supporting this argument are discussed.
