Dallas Hand Doctor Pedro Loredo Gives Away Hand Surgery to Woman in Need

DALLAS, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 01/09/14 -- Dr. Pedro Loredo, a surgeon at Renova Hand and Foot Centers, was recognized by North Texas news station KTXD 47 for his generosity toward a Dallas citizen disabled by debilitating hand pain. Esther Gonzales suffered from carpal tunnel syndrome, a condition that made it difficult for her to perform at work, but despite her inability to pay for her surgery, Dr. Loredo insisted on treating Gonzales completely free of charge.

A cashier at a local supermarket, Esther Gonzales began experiencing severe pain and discomfort in her hands and fingers. "I live every day with pain," Gonzales explained prior to surgery. "I can't work; I can't do anything because my hand is so bad." Even though others urged Gonzales to see a hand specialist, she was concerned that her lack of health insurance would prevent her from receiving the treatment she needed. Nevertheless, Gonzales began to research treatment options and discovered the website for the Dallas branch of Renova Hand and Foot Centers.

Gonzales was soon diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome, a common hand condition that causes persistent pain and tingling in the hand and wrist. The condition causes more missed work days than any other injury -- up to 30 days per year per affected person -- and can cause permanent nerve damage if left untreated. In the case of Gonzales, her pain was aggravated by the movements she was required to perform at her job.

Dr. Loredo was eager to help Gonzales and offered to treat her at no charge. "We want to give back to the community so we give one monthly surgery to charity for someone that's very deserving, that needs it," Dr. Loredo told The Texas Daily. Dr. Loredo went on to say that giving back to the community was part of his Texas upbringing and is now integral to his work as a doctor. "I'm very lucky that I can do this for another person," he said.

To treat Gonzales' carpal tunnel syndrome, Dr. Loredo performed a new micro-invasive surgery called AccuCision™. The AccuCision™ procedure was developed by doctors at Renova Hand and Foot Centers, who remain the exclusive providers of this advanced hand surgery. "The incisions we use are as small as a grain of rice," Dr. Loredo explained. "We use a clear cannula so that we can see the whole anatomy of the hand." The advanced ClearView 360™ technology of AccuCision™ allows doctors to perform carpal tunnel release safely and effectively without the use of a large incision while protecting surrounding tissues and nerves. Since no stitches are required, recovery time is brief, lasting about one week. According to Dr. Loredo, his patients have seen "huge results" from the procedure.

Following surgery, Gonzales quickly began to experience the results of her treatment. "It's like a miracle," Gonzales remarked. "I don't know who picked me [to receive] this wonderful gift...I can't believe it." Dr. Loredo and rest of the staff at Renova look forward to helping more patients like Gonzales in the future.

With offices across the country, Renova Hand and Foot features fellowship-trained hand, foot and microvascular surgeons specializing in all hand, wrist, and foot conditions. Renova is the exclusive provider of the AccuCision™ Procedure, the most advanced treatment for entrapped nerves on the market. For more information visit painfreehands.com or freemyfeet.com.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Hardware virtualization and cloud computing allowed us to increase resource utilization and increase our flexibility to respond to business demand.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
