Thomas Loumeau, MD, of Jesup-based Bone & Joint Institute of South Georgia, performed one of the first endoscopic spine surgeries using joimax's 4K Endoscopic Spine Surgery System.

Three notes:

1. The endoscopic spine surgery system is designed to reduce postoperative pain and blood loss while speeding up recovery times.

2. Joimax developed the system to result in minimal trauma to surrounding tissues so patients have less scarring.

3. Dr. Loumeau is a board-certified spine surgeon. He has a special interest in minimally invasive procedures, deformity correction, spinal decompression and fusion.
