Hackensack, NJ (PRWEB) June 13, 2017
Dr. James C. 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 in New Jersey will be featured in New York Magazine for the 9th year in a row as one of New York Metros Best Orthopedic Surgeons. The recognition is a true testament to Dr. Wittig’s undeniable compassion, direct doctor-patient relationships and ongoing commitment to treating musculoskeletal cancers with the most innovative advances.
The fine-tuned listing of Best Doctors in New York Magazine provides patients with an opportunity to utilize this guide as the resource for the specialty they require. For many current and past patients, finding Dr. Wittig proved to be a positive beginning of an uncertain journey but one guided by a true leader in his field. The difficulties of orthopedic oncology treatments are lessened by the advances that Dr. Wittig has achieved in his 16+ years handling an array of cases from the straightforward to the most complex ones in nature. "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, "…and, when you are backed by a team that shares the same commitment and personal devotion to providing an environment that fosters a continuum of extraordinary, multidisciplinary care only enhances the process and leads to the most desirable outcomes.”
The sharing of knowledge and expertise goes beyond Dr. Wittig’s daily practice. In addition to co-authoring the invaluable ‘one and only in-depth guide’ to Orthopedic Oncology available today, “Operative Techniques in Orthopedic Surgical Oncology,” nine abstracts were presented during the 2016 ACS Clinical Congress in Washington, DC and six orthopedic oncology education videos were presented during the 2017 AAOS Annual Meeting in San Diego, CA. Dr. Wittig’s commitment to his field of study expands beyond the boundaries of the surgical suites as well and into the heart of raising awareness for these diseases that affect many, and; in many ways. Recently, Dr. Wittig worked with the NJ based E’s Battle Buddies gang to help raise over $100k for sarcoma research at Hackensack UMC. “I am grateful for the opportunity to serve in many ways and being recognized by my colleagues provides the drive and motivation to delve deeper into research and seeking answers,” remarked Dr. Wittig.
