For Surgeons, by Surgeons
Our founders and owners are surgeons who have used neuromonitoring in their operating room for over 30 years. One of our founders, Dr. Seth Neubardt, invented the Pedicle Probe, a device currently marketed by Medtronic’s NIM division, and he was part of the early development of several IONM technologies now widely used in the field. Our founders recognize the difference between a neurophysiologist and a tech, between experts and placeholders. We’ve built our culture, policies and processes around that notion.
Work. Life. You.
At SPN, Patient safety is our touchstone, and we strive to combine that goal with another: to attract, nurture and retain the best talent by providing a challenging and rewarding workplace. It is very important to us that our team members’ lives and careers are treated with care and consideration. While we recognize that Healthcare roles can often bring challenging schedules, we keep a focus on our people and work towards providing balance in team assignments and career development.

Mission Trips & Volunteerism
Patient care is at the heart of everything we do and we’ve offered many of our neurophysiologists the chance to participate in medical mission trips and other volunteer opportunities. On many occasions, SPN neurophysiologists have had the opportunity to monitor a record number of complex cases in poverty-stricken regions of the world as part of large medical mission organizations. SPN neurophysiologists have made trips to places like Uganda, China, Dominican Republic, Vietnam and Trinidad & Tobago.
Regional & Team Meetings
Neuromonitoring can be a lonely profession. We strive to make every team member not only understand the importance they play in the organization as a whole but consistently feel like part of the family. Each regional team operates as a unit and meets regularly to discuss cases, operational issues, and socialize. This is an important part of life at SPN that we take seriously. Once a month, the executive and management team holds an “all-hands call” where general company updates and hot topics are discussed, including a general Q&A with an open floor for all team members to communicate with management.
It's been a yearly tradition ever since the company's inception! Once a year we get the whole team together for a weekend. We discuss important business updates, review clinical topics and get a chance to relax, socialize and celebrate our accomplishments! We've held retreats in Boston, Brooklyn and most recently Mohonk Mountain House Resort in the Hudson Valley!
Every once in a while, you will get a call from our awesome CEO, Dan Siegel. He just wants to check in to see how things are going!
