FAIRFAX, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/14 -- 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, five 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, Dr. Rajev I. Nain, 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, "Five 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, Nain, 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.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. Th...
