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.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
