About Reiner Henson See, MD

Dr. Reiner See is triple board-certified in Neurology, Neuromuscular Medicine and Clinical Neurophysiology with special competency in Intraoperative Monitoring. He devotes his clinical time in the Massachusetts General Hospital’s Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring unit and at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital’s multi-disciplinary Paralysis Center. He performs electrodiagnostic studies on peripheral nerve disorders and evaluation of spinal cord injury patients undergoing reconstructive neurosurgical interventions. Intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring reduces the risk of damage to the brain, cranial nerves, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves during certain surgical procedures.  It can also be useful in helping guide the surgeon during reconstructive strategy, giving real time data about risk of injury during surgery.

Dr. See's current research interests include peripheral nerve surgery repair, spinal cord injury, brachial plexus injuries, paralytic disorders; developing innovative techniques for spinal cord mapping; neuromonitoring protocols to prevent spinal cord ischemia and paraplegia during open thoracoabdominal aneurysm repair; developing neurophysiologic monitoring techniques for minimally invasive procedures such as radiofrequency ablation and cryoablation. He is a co-investigator in peripheral nerve repair study in non-human primate models. He is collaborating with Massachusetts Eye and Ear Institute (MEEI) in developing novel olfactory nerve stimulation methods in humans.
