NAPERVILLE, Ill., April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- George Salti, MD, FACS, renowned surgical oncologist and Associate Professor of Surgery at the University of Illinois at Chicago, has joined the Edward Cancer Center. Dr. Salti will serve as the Co-Medical Director of the Edward Cancer Center and Medical Director of the Edward Hospital Surgical Oncology Program.
Dr. Salti uses advanced surgical techniques to treat melanoma, sarcoma, breast cancer, gastrointestinal and esophageal cancer, pancreatic cancer, hepatobiliary cancer and endocrine tumors.
In addition, Dr. Salti has developed a special interest in – and is one of only a few surgeons in Illinois and the country – treating late stage abdominal cancers with Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy, also known as HIPEC. Only 1,300-1,500 of the procedures are performed annually in the U.S.
HIPEC is done in conjunction with surgery to remove cancerous tumors. With HIPEC, the abdominal cavity is bathed with a heated chemotherapy solution for 90 minutes to attack any remaining cancer cells. According to Dr. Salti, HIPEC is most commonly applied to cancers of the appendix and colon, but also is used in some cases of ovarian, stomach and peritoneal cancers.
"HIPEC may provide relief of symptoms, and it has improved the survival rate for some cancers," says Dr. Salti. "It doubles the survival rate for certain colon cancer patients compared to use of the latest standard chemotherapy. And for patients with malignant growths known as pseudomyxoma peritonei, HIPEC can add up to 20 years to their life expectancy."
Dr. Salti was previously a surgical oncologist with University Surgical Consultants. He earned his medical degree from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, and completed his residency in General Surgery and fellowship training in Surgical Oncology at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
Dr. Salti is certified by the American Board of Surgery. He is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a member of the American Hepatobiliary Pancreatic Association, American Society of Breast Surgeons, American Society of Clinical Oncology, American Society of Peritoneal Surface Malignancy, Society for Melanoma Research, Society of American Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Surgeons and the Society of Surgical Oncology.

Edward's cancer care has earned Accreditation with Commendation from the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons and full accreditation from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers; is recognized by the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative Certification Program – one of only 19 healthcare organizations in Illinois and one of only 176 in the country to be certified; and is designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by American College of Radiology.
Edward Cancer Centers are located in Naperville, on the campus of Edward Hospital, 801 S. Washington St. and on the Edward Plainfield campus, 127th St. and Van Dyke Rd. Both have a highly specialized medical team along with comprehensive, state-of-the-art outpatient medical and radiation oncology services, including the most sophisticated and precise radiation treatment options available to target and remove tumors, one of the most active clinical trials programs in the area outside of a university setting, the most active cancer research program in DuPage County and psychosocial programs to help cancer patients and their families throughout the west and southwest suburbs of Chicago.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
