Dr. Viet Nguyen is a neurophysiologist and Clinical Associate Professor of Neurology at Stanford School of Medicine. His practice focuses on Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring (IONM).Dr. Nguyen was fellowship-trained at Stanford in Clinical Neurophysiology, with an emphasis in IONM.The IONM service uses somatosensory and motor evoked potentials (SSEP, MEP), electroencephalography (EEG), electromyography (EMG), and brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEP) to help minimize risk in procedures that involve the nervous system. These include surgeries and endovascular procedures for cerebral aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), carotid stenosis, brain and spinal tumors, spinal deformities like scoliosis and spinal stenosis, peripheral nerve injury and tumors, aortic aneurysms, trigeminal neuralgia, facial dystonia, and others.He has published, presented research, and lectured at national and international meetings on IONM topics, and is active in multiple professional organizations in the field, including the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society, Society of Clinical Neurologists, and American Academy of Neurology.
