Experience JOMI Like Never Before!

From top, left then right: Dr. Weaver’s Intramedullary Nail for Open Tibial Fracture, Dr. Gaissert’s Wedge Resection of the Lung and Thymectomy by Thoracoscopy, Dr. Fisichella’s Laparoscopic Appendectomy, & Dr. Rattner & Dr. Meireles’ Peroral Endoscopic Myotomy (POEM) for Achalasia

All JOMI articles now have closed captions and transcripts!

Follow along as the CCs reveal the quiet comments, cut through the accents, and visualize the vocab. If there’s a certain tool you want to see in action, you can search the transcript, skip to the appropriate chapter of the video, and then sit back, relax, and enjoy the surgery – without worrying about headphones. These new features mean we’re also ADA compliant (Americans with Disabilities Act) – so recommend us to your friends, librarians, and librarian-friends!
