(PRWEB) September 13, 2011
World renowned surgeon and media entrepreneur Dr. Andrew Renaut today announced the launch of Xcorio (http://www.xcorio.com) a professional networking platform created by surgeons for surgeons.
Xcorio.com allows surgeons from around the world to connect online. The website is being launched globally by Xcorio Technologies (http://www.xcoriotech.com), a company founded by acclaimed surgeon Dr. Andrew Renaut and technology entrepreneur Steve Huff. The idea for a professional networking platform developed as Dr. Renaut recognized the shortcomings of existing social networking sites at addressing the specific challenges and needs surgeons have to work and collaborate together online.
“Xcorio goes well beyond existing social and professional networking sites, and offers surgeons a secure professional platform where they can connect and work online,” said Dr. Renaut.
Xcorio allows surgeons the opportunity to create their own professional profile, ‘friend’ other surgeons and join specialty or sub-specialty surgical groups.
“Our ‘groups’ feature is by far the most powerful element of the site,” Dr. Renaut added. “Once a surgeon joins a group they can upload and share the latest research and videos relevant to their specialty, and participate in online discussion forums.”
There are over 350,000 surgeons currently practicing around the world. Xcorio.com provides them with an online networking site to share knowledge and information, keep up-to-date on the latest trends and research and, in the near future, continue their medical education through online CME and CPD courses.
“This is our first global site and we couldn’t be more pleased with the response from the surgical community,” said co-founder Steve Huff of Xcorio Technologies.
