Wittig, Chief of Orthopedic Oncology in the Departments of Orthopedic Surgery and Director of the Sarcoma Divisions of the Cancer Centers, Mount Sinai Medical Center and Hackensack University Medical Center will appear in the 8th edition of Castle Connolly's 'America's Top Doctors for Cancer’ guide.
As one of only 150 orthopedic oncologists in the country, Dr. Wittig’s continuous distinction of "America’s Top Doctors for Cancer" emphasizes his compassion and ongoing commitment to treating cancer with the most innovative advances. This accolade is an outstanding testament to Dr. Wittig’s unprecedented approaches to treating musculoskeletal tumors as well as his sensitivity to the nature of oncology cases - for adult and pediatric patients alike. Combining a genuine concern for his patients, allowing ample time to educate them of their condition at every consultation as well as explain the options available are as crucial to the well being of his patients as are the precise skills he demonstrates in surgery. It is this rare combination he exemplifies as a medical professional that are the keys to his success. When time is of the essence in oncology cases, Dr. Wittig secures a perfect balance of dexterity and passion for those seeking and needing his care.

This must-have guide also contains information on locating clinical trials and how to access the resources and services of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
"Although most would agree that oncology cases are the toughest, I am 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.”
