Bluepoint Surgical Group Physicians Voted Among Top Doctors in Northern Virginia

Four of Bluepoint Surgical Group's Physicians Are Recognized Among Northern Virginia Magazine's 2014 "Top Doctors" in Minimally-Invasive Bariatric, Colorectal, and General Surgery

FAIRFAX, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 -- The team of bariatric surgeons at Bluepoint Surgical Group helps patients overcome morbid obesity by implementing a comprehensive bariatric program. In addition to weight loss surgery, the physicians at Bluepoint Surgical Group also provide treatment for gallbladder disease and colorectal conditions.

Recently, four surgeons from Bluepoint Surgical Group were named Northern Virginia's 2014 Top Doctors for Minimally Invasive Bariatric and General Surgery. The surgeons on the "Top Docs" list include Dr. Amir Moazzez, Dr. Denis J. Halmi, Dr. Hamid R. Pourshojae, and Dr. Raman Kumar, the latter of whom was recognized for Minimally Invasive Colorectal and General Surgery.

For the 2014 edition of "Top Doctors," Northern Virginia Magazine selected physicians based off a two-part process, the first part being peer nomination from fellow doctors in the area. For the second part, the magazine worked with local hospitals, as well as the Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group, asking panels of head doctors to assess physicians using a number of criteria. As noted in the recent blog post, "Four Bluepoint Surgical Group Physicians Voted As "Top Doctors," peer-nominated physicians were judged based on:

  • Internal evaluations
  • Patient reviews
  • Overall quality of care, such as training and patient access

Drs. Halmi, Moazzez, Pourshojae, and Kumar say they are particularly honored to receive the recognition. For individuals interested in weight loss surgery, or those who are in need of treatment for colorectal conditions, the physicians at Bluepoint Surgical Group emphasize the importance of consulting with a qualified and experienced surgeon in order to ensure ethical treatment and results with low risk of complications. Designated as a "Center of Excellence for Bariatric Surgery" by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, the center's pre and post surgical care is comprehensive, individualized, and dedicated to achieving long-term, successful results. The Bluepoint Surgical Group physicians say each of the "Top Doctors" awards reflects their commitment to providing high quality patient care and effective results.

Technology vendors and analysts are eager to paint a rosy picture of how wonderful IoT is and why your deployment will be great with the use of their products and services. While it is easy to showcase successful IoT solutions, identifying IoT systems that missed the mark or failed can often provide more in the way of key lessons learned. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Peter Vanderminden, Principal Industry Analyst for IoT & Digital Supply Chain to Flatiron Strategies, will focus on how IoT depl...
Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...

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.

In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
