“It’s an honor and a privilege to be among the select group of physicians recognized annually by Castle Connolly,” said Dr. Wittig, Vice Chairman, Orthopedic Surgery; Chief, Orthopedic Oncology and Sarcoma Surgery at HackensackUMC and Director, Skin and Sarcoma Division at the John Theurer Cancer Center. “With over 15+ years handling an array of cases from the straightforward to the most complex ones in natures, specifically Orthopaedic Oncology cases, I am also humbled to be of service to so many in need of this specialized care.”
Physicians named in the Castle Connolly’s America’s Top Doctors, America’s Top Doctors for Cancer and Top Doctors: New York Metro Area, guides, are selected based on a survey of their peers, taking into account professional qualifications, reputation and patient care skills. Dr. Wittig’s selection as a top orthopedic surgeon is a genuine reflection of his vast experience in orthopedics, his commitment to continuing education and his compassion for his patients.
For many current and past patients, finding Dr. Wittig proves to be a positive beginning of an uncertain journey but one guided by a true leader in his field. "Although most would agree that oncology cases are the toughest, I am truly challenged by each and every diagnosis, confronting them with a customized plan as individual as each patient," notes Dr. Wittig, "leading a team that shares my commitment and personal devotion to provide an environment that fosters a continuum of extraordinary, multidisciplinary care makes the rewards of our work outstanding.”
In addition, the recent publication of the second edition to the book co-authored by Dr. Wittig entitled, Operative Techniques in Orthopaedic Surgical Oncology, has become invaluable in the field and is the ‘one and only’ in-depth guide to Orthopedic Oncology available today. Most recently, twelve of Dr. Wittig’s abstracts for current research studies were presented at the 2015 ISOLS-MSTS meeting in Orlando, FL. and his paper, “Functional Results and Complications with Long Stem Hemiarthroplasty in Patients with Metastases to the Proximal Femur,” was recently accepted to the journal Clinical Orthopedics and Related Research (CORR) and is now in the final editing stages. Dr. Wittig is currently involved in a nationwide clinical trial for IlluminOss, a new technology used to treat actual and impending pathological fractures of the proximal humerus due to metastatic bone cancer (to read more, visit http://www.illuminoss.com)
