Hi Vicki, I do believe that the NIMS is the facial nerve monitor. If your physician actually inserts the monitor and does all the monitoring while he is performing the thyroidectomy, then I would say yes.

Mostly Neuro/Anesthesiologists perform that part. we have a company that does all the monitoring on our thyroid and parotid surgeries
